The Ultimate Life

This touching story of hope, love and family values is the much anticipated follow-up to the heartwarming film and best-selling book The Ultimate Gift. Three years after receiving life-changing gifts from his grandfather Red, Jason Stevens finds himself in need of guidance once again. When the foundation his grandfather left him is challenged in a courtroom battle, and the love of his life travels to Haiti to support a hospital in need, Jason realizes he's lost all direction. But just when it looks as though he may lose it all, he discovers his grandfather's precious journal. With everything he loves hanging in the balance, Jason embarks on an incredible journey into the past - through the journal - to learn what it truly means to live...THE ULTIMATE LIFE.

REVIEW:

More than meets the eye.
When I first saw the disc and read the synopsis fully along with seeing the stills from the film, I wasn't so sure it was going to be as good as I initially hoped. I admit, being a Peter Fonda fan, he is a HUGE part of why I wanted to see it. At this point, it looked like a made-for-tv movie to me.
Man, I was wrong!
Charming, heartwarming, emotional, and lovely are just some of the words I can use to describe this movie. Circled around the life of an incredible man, his story is told from his journal through the eyes of his grandson. He is passed on when this happens, which puts more emphasis on it all too. 
I tell ya, this movie has the same qualities of 'The Notebook' or 'Big Fish'. That story within a story, with love, so much love. Gets me every time.
This movie has such a strong message of love and importance of family relationships. It's also romantic enough for date night. I just really loved it!


5/5

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
