Born the size of a human hand, Simon Birch was not predicted to live through the first week of his life. Then the first month. Then the first year. Twelve years later, Simon is still alive, and still incredibly undersized. He constantly reminds his best friend Joe that God has a special plan for him. Meanwhile, Joe spends his time closed off from his mother's new suitors, preoccupied with the knowledge that he has never been told who his real father is. When fate intervenes in the form of a foul ball during a little league game, Joe understands that he will never learn the truth; unless Simon is right about there being a purpose for everything, that is. A hopeful, heartwarming tale that the whole family can enjoy. Based on John Irving's A Prayer For Owen Meany.
You will NEVER forget this movie. I am over 40 and have been "moved" by some movies. This is indeed one of my Favorites. I do not have a Movie Collection, but I am buying it so that I can share it with others. EVERYONE needs to see this Movie. My husband who is a Action Movie buff did not want to watch it, but HE loved it. My son however watched it and he said once was enough as it made him cry at the age of 18. He is also a "terminator" type Action and Thriller movie buff.
I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS MOVIE SINCE I SAW IT THE FIRST TIME. IT'S A MUST SEE! I AM REALLY GLAD TO HAVE FOUND IT & THE PRICE WAS VERY REASONABLE.
I RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE WITH A HEART (THAT'S EVERYBODY )
It was a little slow but the storyline was good. It was just another version of ┐big kid (or adult) helps young child out of miserable situation┐. A not-as-good version of ┐The Mighty┐. If I┐d seen it in the theater, I probably wouldn┐t have purchased it.
