Very disappointed! Extremely slow moving and rather dull. I agree that the message of the movie was excellent, but the movie itself was at best a \"made for TV\" movie that would have been best on Lifetime or the Hallmark Channel.

This movie is awesome! Very reflective about what really matters in life(:

Very inspirational movie that would be good for young people to see instead of being constantly bombarded by violent movies with no plot! I highly recommend it and hopefully Hollywood will get the message that the public is tired of a bunch of foul language and violence.

I saw the first movie, and now this is a follow up on it. I would recommend seeing the first one if you can before this movie. It is Ultimate ? (the title is next to the listing) Fantastic movie - why can't we see more of this type of Movie.

The Ultimate Life is hampered by a predictable story, stereotypical characters and wooden acting. Full Review

Slant Magazine
Its thinly veiled message of social conservatism and religious affirmations as the pathway to an ideal life is delivered with all the predigested sentimentality of a Hallmark card. Full Review

This second feature based on a best-selling book by Jim Stovall is mainly repetitive in its themes and suffers from a melodramatic plotline and hamfisted execution. Full Review
Geoff Berkshire
At least the narrative sloppiness and ineptly delivered themes in the script by Brian Bird and Lisa G. Shillingburg (freely adapted from the novel by Jim Stovall) feel of a piece with the entire production. Full Review

Austin Chronicle
Again. Via Red’s experiences as a young man and wildcatter, Jason learns that money cannot buy happiness. What the viewers learn is that money can’t buy a good movie either. Full Review
