Brendan Fraser and Harrison Ford team up to give performances that will stay with you. An excellent family film. Beautifully directed and cast. Highly recommend.

Great plot Great acting, but they way over did it on the touchy feely garbage. Thank the heavens for the FF button. Ford made a good bad guy, but appeared a bit comatose.

Very good movie.

I was expecting a little more humor and little less yawning.

I didn't get to see this when it was in the theater. I like Harrison Ford in almost everything he does. I checked out Morning Glory at the same time. He plays a crusty personality in both films. I enjoyed this movie. It is incredible what the family went through and they all still seemed so positive and upbeat. A lesson for all of us.

Some save the world, while others build barriers to make profits from the misfortunes of families in the world.


Some fathers NEVER give up, to save their dying children, even when THEY ARE TOLD TO STOP TRYING by the so called-experts of life & death.
Extraordinary misfortune of a family plagued with debilitating disease & the father's extraordinary undertaking to save his dying children, while time is running out & the stakes & barriers are stacked higher & higher at every corner of the struggle.

Far too predictable & derivative of too may other films along the same lines. Harrison Ford appears to be sleepwalking.
