Faith-based films often struggle with humor, but writer/co-star Ogletree gives this film about a family tragedy a light, likable touch. As an actor, Ogletree's goofy, smart aleck energy has a lovable sincerity (think Jason Sudeikis meets Steve Zahn) that lights up the screen. His irreverent voice comes through in the writing, and his contagious personality clearly influenced the other actors' performances: He elevates the entire production. And if RIchard T. Jones wasn't on your radar before, he will be now, thanks to his standout performance as a tough but caring golf coach.

The script of Round of Your Life doesn't completely avoid cheese, but don't assume that you know where the story is going: There's a double plot twist. The filmmakers also deserve kudos for making a movie about golf, a sport that doesn't get its due on the big screen despite its popularity. One big complaint is the score: Its poignant guitar pluckings sound like hold music. But on the whole, as a youth group movie night choice, this one is a winner.
