The Ultimate Gift
(D: Michael O. Sajbel, 114 min)
The Ultimate Gift is the latest in Fox Faith's series of Christian-themed movies. They're big business in the U.S., especially in those red states. They haven't made much of a dent up here, though, screening locally in only one or two suburban theatres.
This one concerns fun-loving guy Jason (Drew Fuller), who gets a strange inheritance from his wealthy grandfather (James Garner). Instead of cashola, though, he's gets a series of 12 gifts that, we're sure, will open up his eyes and heart and change his life.
A footnote: Abigail Breslin, that cute kid from Little Miss Sunshine, is also in it. Heaven help her.
Opens Friday (March 9). Screened after press time.
