He decides to race in soapbox derbies. And he gets good with the help of his supportive family and neighbor. Along the way, he discovers more about his inner self and begins to appreciate who he is, wheelchair or no wheelchair.
But what made me truly appreciate this movie was the way the filmmakers accentuated the reality. They not only carefully hit upon Justin's trials as a paralyzed kid, but also upon his brother's (Seth) own issues with Justin.
My brother has a disability as well, somewhat different from Justin's problems, but their portrayal of Seth was what made the movie more authentic and helped me to personally relate to the characters.
Making an audience relate to the characters is what makes a movie work. This movie worked. Kudos to Disney for creating this wonderful film.
One thing I did have a problem with: their portrayal of God and Heaven. While it is true that God does not make mistakes, and I have seen many times when He has used my disability for good, I will NOT have these handicaps in Heaven. It is misleading and very disappointing that Disney took this stance.
But Justin really wants to be like Seth, and so he wants to win a trophy because Seth is really good at sports. So he decides to start racing in soap box derby races. Seth doesn't really think it's a good idea for Justin to be doing something like that, but their parents start supporting Justin because they think it's a great idea. With a lot of heart and faith and hard work, Justin manages to make his dreams come true!
Frankie Muniz portrays his character wonderfully, as usual. By the way, Frankie Muniz earned a 2001 Golden Globes nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy Series and he recently earned a 2001 Emmy Award nomination also for Best Actor in a Comedy Series. Patrick Levis is a terrific young actor, too. And the rest of the supporting cast is superb as well!
This movie is based on a true story. I am seventeen years old and I think this is a wonderful film. I don't think that just because I'm a teenager then I shouldn't be watching the Disney Channel. I actually enjoy watching the Disney Channel and Disney films. If a teenager like me can enjoy this film, then anybody can enjoy MIRACLE IN LANE 2. Remember, that it's Disney and they couldn't be TOO realistic or serious - they had to make it so kids would understand and enjoy it, too. All, in all, MIRACLE IN LANE 2 is a must own.
