I really liked this movie when I first saw it and I liked Greg Kinnear in the lead role. The little boy was very good as well.

Nothing bad to say about the acting or the main story line, excellent! My big problem was I couldn't understand how a pastor could not believe in heaven in the first place?! That's what gives Christians hope, the reason Jesus died on the cross to save us from our sins so we could join him in HEAVEN! Why would you even be a christian if there were no eternal consequences for your actions? You just disappeared when you died. Why was he a pastor at all?! Made no sense to me, but loved the little boy's experience.

Charming story, based on a young boy's experiences, and showing his pastor Dad's problems dealing with the resultant publicity. Dad nearly lost his church!

You know what? I really believe in a city that floats in space where angels come and go. God or Jesus is one, so is everyone one that is. One mindset, one goal, one purpose, one teacher, one angel and that is you. Have you ever wondered created in his image really means? We the angels and I is one, we are taught just why we are in Heaven, the real reason that is. Why the Scriptures and the people called Jesus the teacher. In Heaven that is all He does, one or two or maybe three at a time. School is in section and you learn how to be like the creator of everything, but one day, you will be the one, the only one. God is a different species than we angels, or we humans. I see angels no higher than humans, only God is higher, way higher than everything, he is not of this Universe period. But you can be of his Universe in the seventh dimension where he resides. My residence in the city of lights is right next door to the Holy One, the teacher. But first you must graduate from this school where God is your personal teacher, Good Luck! Me, myself, and I try the best I can, but so does everyone in this school. Its easy, no sweat, just pay attention!!! There are no questions, just answers.

The son of a Christian pastor believes he has died, gone to heaven, and seen -- no, not Mohammed, not the Buddha, not Cybele or Lakshmi -- but Jesus. Good heavens! How could this possibly have happened? Well, not very convincingly or factually is the short answer, but the good news is his father made a holy mountain of dough from his book about the incident. This movie is a cut above the usual religious film, in terms of production and acting (with the exception of the little boy, who can't perform a line to save his life). Unfortunately, it contains all the usual cliches, including Unhappy Atheists -- something unpleasant happened in their lives, and that is the only reason why now they don't believe. And they want to! They're not bad, they're sad!

A good religious and family film. Sweet and nice to watch.

I enjoyed this film which is based on a true story. Greg Kinnear was quite good as the Dad and the actor who played Colton portrayed him in a very endearing way! If you want to watch an uplifting film about a Christian family then this might a good film for you!

This is what it is like when something superficial tries to look profound.

““And I believe that God, he's love. He opened my heart to love. And all I have to do, the one thing this love requires is that I let others know they're not alone.”

“Haven't we already seen heaven? In the first cry of a baby, in the courage of a friend. Is heaven for real? All of you have asked yourselves that question. My answer is yes. I see it, so I believe it.”
