This is one of the first films to be released by Fox Faith, a division of Fox that produces films that will appeal to religiously-minded people. It isn’t overtly spiritual or religious, but it does push for things like friendship and hard work, and if you think that sounds boring, you’re right.
When Red Stevens (James Garner) dies, he leaves his spoiled grandson a series of clues instead of an inheritance. Each clue will, of course, end up teaching him some important family value (Show respect! Love your family! Hard work!), making him a better man as he befriends a woman and her young sick daughter. The daughter is Abigail Breslin from the pageant movie.
It isn’t an offensively bad movie or anything, and the message is a positive one, if corny, but the film itself is sort of amateurishly made, big on hokey scenes and hammy performances, and off on little things like timing and the soundtrack. There are better ways to get spiritual fulfillment, if that’s what you’re looking for. This is too sincere to laugh at, and not exactly good enough to take seriously.
