Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Ultimate Life is the sequel to 2007's faith-based inspirational drama The Ultimate Gift. Like the original, this follow-up has lots of feel-good (if overly obvious) messages about what money can (oil rigs, big houses) and can't buy (love, happiness), and how it's a person's friendships and family that count as their true legacy, not their monetary fortune. There's little objectionable content, but the movie's messages and themes about a well-lived life and the importance of family over fortune are best suited for tweens and up. There's one violent scene when a main character fights in World War II and is shot (but survives his injury), as well as some flirting and kissing and infrequent use of words like "hell."
Some flirting and a few brief kisses between teenage Red and Hannah.
Red enlists in World War II and is shot but saved by a fellow soldier. Audiences see the blood from the bullet wound in a brief shot.
Insults like "hick," "hillbilly," "stupid," and "selfish," plus "hell."
The movie's main purpose is to offer moral lessons about the real meaning of wealth, how a person's spouse and children are their fortune and legacy, how being there for someone means more than what you can buy them, and how being "rich" is about more than money. The movie also has faith-based themes like the idea of creating a "golden list" of 10 things you're grateful to God for each day.
