Lots of language and inappropriate for young children

This PG movie would be PG-13 if it were made today. Lots of language, male nudity in locker room and other material. Definitely not suitable for young children.

Heart teaching

I love this movie! it really helps you understand what parents go through when they have a child with an illness that can't be curried! For years i resented my dad for pulling the my brother off the machines but after i watch this movies since that moment it lets me see how hard it must have been for him. of course you can only feel so much of the pain that a true parents feel, but if that every happened to my son i would not be able to hold as strong as the mom did!!!

Great, emotional, but funny movie.

This is a wonderful movie. Very emotional, but still funny and full of laughs. Parents should watch this movie with their kids and discuss the emotional content. You will laugh and cry.
