    ITEM#: 10727453

    The videotaped will of deceased billionaire Red Stevens (James Garner) includes the "ultimate gift" for his spoiled, sullen grandson Jason (Drew Fuller). A series of tasks meant to turn Jason from a hedonistic jerk into a compassionate human being is included in the will, but whether that's the gift or there's a fortune at the end of the rainbow is something Jason will just have to wait to find out. First, he's sent to Texas to work on the ranch of one of Red's old pals (Brian Dennehey). Then his trust fund is cut off and he's thrown into the streets where he battles a bum for a park bench and eventually makes friends with a young girl--dying of leukemia--named Emily (Abigail Breslin). There's some romantic bonding with Emily's struggling mom (Ali Hills) and danger down in Costa Rica, where Jason winds up hostage to some drug-running thugs. Bill Cobbs and Lee Meriwether are the lawyers who monitor Jason's progress. This is a nice little movie, with a straightforward spiritual agenda. But it gets everything right, with minimum sermonizing and maximum heart. The cast is clearly into the spirit of the matter: Abigail Breslin (LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE) radiates oddball charm, and the eyes of old pros Garner, Denehey, Meriwether, and Cobbs are alight with compassion and nobility.

    • The Ultimate Gift

      We happened upon this movie one evening while in Phx. I had heard nothing about it prior to viewing. It WAS a gift. One with so many values and feelings that I wanted each of my 7 children's families to be able to enjoy it. I was happy to find it here at Overstock and it has been enjoyed and commented on frequently by the children and their families.

      This movie made an impression on me and gave me a better understanding of the purpose of life. What we must do to have a successful life. The points made sense and had a great impact toward undertanding my life. I have shared the DVD with several others and they have made the same comments.

    • wonderful movie

      I just purchased 5 of these movies to give as gifts. It is a wonderful film with a wonderful message about what is truly important in life. When my children hear me say I want them to watch a movie because it has a wonderful message they usually aren't too excited, but they did love this movie. I would suggest it to anyone, especially teenagers.

    • The Ultimate Gift

      This movie is a classic! I was spontaneously taken to see the sneak preview without an opportunity to research it first, and I would strongly recommend viewing it in the same ignorant manner because it added a dimension of complexity that made it even more enjoyable. Once it was officially released in theaters, I took numerous family members to also view it without previously researching it, and I have been counting the days until it was released on DVD. I wholeheartedly recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a heart-warming, inspiring movie because it is, in fact, one of the best I have seen in a long, long while.
