The Ultimate Gift

"I plan on knowing Jason for the rest of my life" -Emily

Looking for something to watch this weekend?

I don't know if any of you have ever seen The Ultimate Gift, but it is a truly, awesome movie.

Not because it was packed with action or filled with famous actors.

Not because it has state of the art effects or death defying thrills.

But because it is a touching, and beautiful story, stunningly portrayed by the actors.

          "Will bring tears to even the coldest of hearts."
                    - The Providence Journal

          "It's a pleasure to watch such old pros as Garner and Dennehy work their magic...and Breslin brings such charm to her role that it more than justifies her position as one of Oscar's youngest nominees."
                    - The Hollywood Reporter

          "An inspirational tearjerker...complete with the unwavering message that good is, as it should be, its own reward."
                    - Baltimore Sun

          "Heartfelt without being preachy."
                    - L.A. Times

          Described as "irresistible" (Baltimore Sun), "uplifting" (The Boston Globe), "endearing" (Charlotte Observer), "finely crafted" (MovieGuide) and Breslin's performance as "captivating " (Washington Post); the film follows Jason Stephens (Drew Fuller), a spoiled and selfish young adult on a mission to complete 12 tasks, or "gifts", in order to collect on an inheritance left to him by his wealthy grandfather (James Garner). Jason's journey becomes one of self-discovery and forces him to consider what is truly important in life. -credit-

Though I'm not usually one to cry over movies, The Ultimate Gift is one I always cry when watching.
Abigail Breslin's performance is beatiful. (As are the other memebers' of the cast.)

Its a movie I can safely say garners a 5 out of 5. For an all around awesome view.
