This movie was so great! So touching! Luke Wilson did a great job & was so convincing that I forgot he was acting! Would recommend this to everyone I know! Must see!!!

I absolutely loved it...I went with 7 friends and we all had good comments. I would recommend it to10 yrs and older. It had a good message and it was touching. :]

This is a GREAT movie! I did not know anything about it when we went, just that I liked Luke Wilson and was so pleasantly surprised. My kids loved it too!

Why are the great movies getting no press. This is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time..Overall, the summer has not had the best movies, but this one is without a doubt worth seeing, and I'll buy it when it comes out on DVD. Great characters, strong acting, great story and all held together by a beautiful story line. Don't miss it.....5 stars

San Francisco Chronicle
A strange and thoughtful little movie. Full Review

USA Today
The film has some amusing moments and can be intriguing when it focuses on the slow transformation of a hopeless, faithless man. Full Review

The Hollywood Reporter
The biggest hole in this picture is not so much whether an audience will buy its miracles but whether an audience will care about Henry Poole. Wilson hits the same notes in virtually every scene without any change to his physical rhythms or moods. Full Review

The Onion (A.V. Club)
Henry Poole cycles through so many indie film clichés--that it continually skirts self-parody. Full Review
Owen Gleiberman
Entertainment Weekly
It's less a tale of religious rebirth than a faith-based Hallmark card. Full Review
