Couldn’t even enjoy the movie with all the horrid cuss words in it. This is far from PG-13.
This movie is fun, entertaining, beautiful and absolutely heart wrenching. I think they did a wonderful job showing how crazy going through the foster system might be.
Based on a true story - so we cannot tell the truth that the movie was just plain bad. I am wondering if this was written by a 16-year-old who doesn't understand how foster, adoption, and the real world works. The swearing makes this movie unwatchable for families. Does anyone really believe that counselors, teachers, and parents talk like that in professional situations? Would counselors allow outright bullying of other foster parents and kids? Yeah, yeah. It's just a movie. But it's a sensitive subject with the potential to deliver a meaningful message. And it just missed the mark. I wanted to like the movie. But the end left me wanting my money back.
Not the most profound story but entertaining and with a well developed arc
This movie displays a great story with strong role-models as well as you developing relationships with the characters. You will laugh and cry. A must watch movie
Heartfelt and funny! Buying it!
This film offers a REAL perspective on being a parent! My hat is off to the writer, director, producer and everyone who contributed to the making of the film. If you are deciding to watch or purchase this film, in my opinion it is totally worth your time and/or money.
Humor helped and the ending was a bit Disney, but this wonderful and challenging and scary experience is a story more people need to talk about!
If you think this is a family movie think again. It can be, it just has to be re-edited with out the cursing and the gay non-sense being forced down everyone’s throat. It’s not natural to this movie it’s forced. I like to feel good and enjoy my time at the movies. This movie didn’t feel good. It felt like stress and drama at home. So if you want more of the same crap you deal with day to day at home go see this. If you want an escape go see something else. Who makes this crap? Oh the far left Hollywood I forgot.
People are rating high bc of the topic. The movie could’ve been good but the language and crappy lines ruined it.
Great Message. Harmonius humour. Talented Acting
Was an awesome movie, by far my favourite out
The best movie it is sooooooooo good
Wow just by watching the trailer I knew it was good!
I highly recommend watching this movie.
This movie should not be rated PG. Adult material and language.
Very bad movie
It should be PG 13 bc there is a lot of cursing and bad stuff but it is still an amazing movie
this movie is very good!
Loved it but because of the rating decided to watch with kids under 11 present! Wish I had known there was loads of vulgar language and sexual content or language in this movie. Should definitely have a higher rating. Besides for that, it was great and loved every minute!
