5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and Uplifting May 24 2006
By Joe
Format:DVD
The movie is inspiring and uplifting. When you watch it, you will go through the full gamut of emotions. During some parts, you'll laugh so hard that your gut will hurt. During other parts, you'll need to have a box of tissues handy.
I recommend that you watch this movie the night before you run in a race. Recently, I watched it before a 10K and shaved several minutes off my best time.
This is my new favourite sports movie. It ranks right up there with Hoosiers, Breaking Away, Cinderella Man and Rocky. If you like sports movies, you must add this one to your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great story for all ages Feb. 7 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Ralph is a charming boy who wants to do the right thing, only the right thing is sometimes so hard to do. But he perseveres, with help from the most unlikely people, and he accomplishes great things, sort of. This is a wonderful film, with great shots, extremely good acting and an interesting score. Too bad more people won't see it in smaller markets here in Canada.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very well done. Inspiring and touching.
Cute and funny but it also makes you think.
I thought is was a true story but it's fictional.
The main actor is excellent.
I loved it and watched it with my siblings at Easter and they all liked it.
