Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this film about making your dreams come true is oriented around a family dealing with the grief of losing a child. It has some arguments and implied violence that might be difficult for younger viewers. The movie has a strong faith-oriented theme that could inspire some and turn off others.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


Flashbacks to the accident that took the life of a little boy, along with a similar close call of another character. Josh has anger issues and gets into a fistfight that isn't shown, but her injuries are seen, and she later deliberately throws a pitch in a rival's direction during a baseball game. A kid gets hit on the head with a home run ball and falls to the ground. Stanley also smashes the lamp with a hammer, and his arguments with Lisa early in the film are intense.
