Editorial Reviews

Holes In My Shoes is the profoundly moving story of New Yorker, Jack Beers. At 94-years-old he breaks the age barrier; able to rip a telephone book into 4 pieces with his hands he is as active and energetic as men more than half his age. But that is just the beginning, his long and diverse list of lifetime achievements is an inspiring tale for all ages. Jack's story is truly motivational and richly entertaining.

This is probably the most wonderful documentary I have ever seen! Jack Beers is truly a treasure! What a wonderful man on so many levels!! This is wonderful to watch as a family, by yourself or with someone special. Mr. Beers had such a loving spirit. He seemed to live his life so matter of factly with wonderful things happening to him on a continual basis, with the exception of losing his beautiful wife, Bertha...his heart was so broken but he triumphed!! I love the way he just did everything he wanted to in life and shared it with so many. He was successful on so many levels. I promise at the end you will have the biggest smile on your face with bittersweet tears. Every second of this documentary is a gift. For those of you who were lucky to know Mr. Beers, I applaud you and I can only imagine the positive impact he had on your lives and the beautiful love you have for him. It was such a great documentary that I didn't want it to end. Buy this DVD, you will not be sorry. In fact, you will probably want to buy a few copies as gifts for loved ones.

I was flipping through the channels on Sunday and there was nothing on. I came across this documentary on one of the PBS channels and switched to it since it was about NYC. I was not disappointed! Jack Beers was a truly remarkable man who had me both laughing and crying at times. I missed the first 20 minutes or so and will now get the dvd to watch it in it's entirety.
Even if your not a native NYer like myself, you will find this highly entertaining and rewarding. RIP Jack Beers. You have inspired so many even to this day!!!

Wonderful, uplifting, character who is a joy to know thru this film. I can't imagine anyone not wanting this masterpiece, I couldn't take my eyes off it, and wish I could share it with everyone I know. Reaching senior citizen age like me? You'll feel like a kid when you see how abundantly this guy chose to live.

There are folks in this world who despite their substantial contributions to the good of humanity remain unknown to the world at large. Jack Beers is one of those individuals. Even though he is not a fame-seeker -- far from it -- this documentary seeks to fill the gaping hole in knowledge about Jack Beers and his multiple contributions. If nothing else, Mr. Beers has lived a long, full, and admirable life, but this documentary goes well beyond showing that, so I highly recommend it to all, young, old, and in between.

This movie has tremendous heart and is absolutely fabulous on a couple of different levels. First and foremost it's about a wonderful and fascinating character -- what a life this man has had! And what a man Mr. Beers is. He has character, heart, intelligence, and a wonderful sense of authentic humanity. This very human story deserves to be seen by everyone who values the human spirit and I think it's a wonderful movie for young and old as a role model. I think it's an absolutely great movie as well, the director has crafted the story in a captivating way that held my attention from beginning to end. I can't think of a greater gift to give someone than to give them this movie. I hope it gets the audience that it deserves.
