Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: A movie made up almost entirely of turning points and yet curiously devoid of drama or suspense.
- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Friday, November 20, 2009
Fresh: It's a cute, touchy-feely crowd pleaser that wants nothing more than to wrap audiences in a warm holiday embrace. In a sense, it achieves that goal, but it is overly sentimental in a Lifetime movie kind-of-way.
- Adam Graham, Detroit News, Friday, November 20, 2009
Fresh: If Frank Capra was still around, director John Lee Hancock might have had to fight him for the job.

Based on a true story a homeless African American teenager from a broken family is adopted by a white American family. They change each others lives. Great cast and story. A bit of a tear jerker.

If you like drama about true life, family movies, a good story and depth, with actors that believe in their role and the movie they make then you will enjoy this for a Sunday break or evening movie. If you're like myself, looking for the action of a good story, perhaps a typical hollywood drama, with no real realism and lots of NFL footage then its the wrong film. If you just want the low down on the player, and I did not realise this was a true life story till the very end, then heres the wiki you probably are looking for http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Oher

One of the worst best picture nominees in Oscar history.I couldnt endure it more than 20 minutes.Judging by that,i must say Sandra Bullock won an Oscar which belonged to Meryl Streep for her great performance in Julie and Julia.In my opinion no matter how many times,Streep has already won,she deserved to win again
