Good family film, minor changes could have made it better
December 28, 2017
This is a very good family film and something I would see on the Hallmark Channel. However, there were a few things that were annoying and cut the quality of the film to me. First, no accent by lead actors... it was about a boy from Alabama... Secondly, great actors, horrible lines... felt especially bad for Howard's character and his horrible accent there too... finally, the film score is ridiculous and completely sidetracked me from enjoying the film. It wasn't until the end that the film music scorer figured out they were shooting in Alabama and added appropriate music, banjo, guitar, etc. instead of the "action" music throughout the beginning of the film. Overall, don't have high expectations and you'll enjoy it.
