Trevor McKinney is a young boy whose social studies teacher gives his class an assignment that ends up being huge for Trevor. What Trevor decides to do is something that will change people’s lives, and make the world a better place – pay it forward. Basically if he does something good for someone, they have pay it forward by doing good for someone else. His social studies teacher also becomes closer to him than one might have initially expected. The boy’s project is very successful, but the movie doesn’t have the happiest ending. I think a good word to describe it is “bittersweet”.

I cried like a baby at the end. We watched this as a family together after the 2016 election...this is what our world needs more of.

The morals and the ideas were good, but there were a lot of bad things in it. The sexual content, the language are just some of the things. Not highly recommended.

Definite tear-jerker. Lovely idea.

Cute movie, giving a nice message about one person being able to make a difference and the nobility of helping others - a message that gets completely undercut by the films warped, out of nowhere ending - file it under no good deed goes unpunished.

Judging by where Trevor was stabbed, I don't understand how he would have died. People say he was stabbed in the gut, but the knife didn't quite reach there. Sad movie anyway. I also like Trevor's idea on how to change the world.

The plot moved along really well, and it was entertaining. But I didn't like the ending.
