I found this film to be very predictable yet there are many lessons taught in the film. Those of which include not to judge others, one can find friendship with those we least expect to find it with, we all make mistakes and people come into our life for a reason, amongst many others. A great family film this movie is for parents to share with their children to help teach them about relationships, friendship, love and most importantly self-confidence. I feel kids can really connect with Bobby, feel for him and his situation, while learning that no matter how bad life can get, if they work hard they can overcome those obstacles and make the best of it.
Would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a nice, clean (no foul language which is a rarity)movie. Actors were great.
You've Got A Friend starring one of my childhood crushes John Schneider so I was already excited before it even started.
John Schneider plays Jim, a Viet Name Vet who was a Derby Car champion. Dylan McLaughlin, an adorable, sweet looking boy plays Bobby Graham, a smart, kid who is looking for someone to help him with a Derby car, something he and his dad were working on before his father's death. He tries to get his Uncle Jeff to help but Jeff is busying running his hardware store and has some underlying anger toward Derby.
I will never understand movies where a child loses their family and has to deal with such negativity. Thankfully, Bobby's teacher and Jim care deeply for Bobby and want to make sure he is happy and doesn't feel alone! Thankfully, it doesn't take long before his Uncle comes around and everyone is happy.
Does Bobby win the Derby? You will have to see the movie and find out.
The story is a wonderful, feel good movie about taking chances, forgiveness, friendship, family, achieving your dreams and not judging others.
A+ and a great family movie!
If you love John, you will love another great role he pulls off.
