“The Ultimate Gift” is a drama about a young man who inherits a lot of money from his grandfather. But in order to get the money…he must complete a series of chores. Along the way the young man…who’s a bit of a spoiled brat…and is played by Drew Fuller…learns lessons about friendship…the true value of money …and the importance of God in his life.
But “The Ultimate Gift” isn’t all serious. There are some exciting action scenes and plenty of humor. Most of that comes from the character played by one of my favorite actresses…Abigail Breslin.
Older viewers will enjoy seeing both James Garner and Lee Meriwether. They do nice work with their roles.
“The Ultimate Gift” is rated PG. It has a few emotional elements…including the death of a key character that you parents should be aware of.
On The Official Kid Critic Report Card, “The Ultimate Gift” gets a B!
It’s one of the best family movie option out right now at the rental store or on the big screen.
