A Mile In His Shoes Review & DVD Giveaway - Ends 1/28

From the director of "Angels In the Outfield" comes an inspiring story about a special boy with an amazing gift, and the coach who believed. Dean Cain and Luke Schroder star in the gmc movie based on the book "The Legend of Mickey Tussler". 

Even though I'm not really big on movies about sports, I thought this was one of the better movies I've seen in awhile! 

The movie stars Dean Cain as Coach Murphy and Luke Schroder (Rick Schroder's son!) as Mickey, a young man with a form of autism, living a sheltered life on a farm with his parents. When he is discovered by accident while Coach Murphy is on a scouting trip in Indiana, his parents decide to let Mickey try out for the semi-pro baseball team in Clayton, Ohio. Mickey proves he has the talent and makes the team. He is well-liked by almost everybody on the team, except for Lefty, another pitcher and this comes to a head at the end of the movie. 

There were several things I thought were great about this movie. I loved that as a coach, Murphy saw the talent and not the "disability".  Throughout the movie, we see Mickey coming out of his shell and learning new ways to accomplish what he needed to in spite of having autism. We see his strength and determination shining through even in the face of adversity and we see what can be accomplished when one person has faith in another. 

While this is rated as a "Family Movie", there is one time during the movie where I am pretty sure the word bull**** is said. It happens so fast that after watching the movie twice, I'm still not sure that is exactly what was said. There were no adult scenes, no obvious drug or alcohol scenes either, and no other language.

Several times during the movie prayer is said, and the Bible is shown in some scenes as well.

My 12 year old twins watched the movie and gave it two thumbs up! It is definitely a movie worth watching!

A man at my church inspires me - he is in a wheelchair from an accident years ago, but he always has an upbeat attitude and is an encouragement/inspiration to others!
