“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Second Glance (2006)
I hope I'm running out of Christiano family Christian films soon. This one is "It's a Wonderful Life" turned into propaganda, without any of the charm, insight or skill of the original. A high school boy envies the life of the non-Christian kids and makes a wish. Gets it. Doesn't seem to understand, for a surprisingly long time - I mean, he's missing a sister, for example. In the end, he undoes the wish and then goes on to become that horrible guy who tries to cram his religion down everyone's throat.
