Much better than the IMDb rating.
Verified purchase
I enjoyed the movie. Not only touching but dealt with many situations that life can throw at you. The lead actor did a great job and I really appreciate John Schneider acting in many faith based movies. Forget about the bad reviews left by the atheists. They are lost in their own unbelief. Open your heart and watch this movie. You will not be disappointed.

Not Just a Christian Movie
Verified purchase
Many of the bad reviews below suggest the high reviews are due to it being "Christian" So very wrong. It is a movie about love, caring, and becoming a better person. While being very emotional there were also good quirky comical scenes that made me smile. I found it very enjoyable and very much worth the watch.

Let's be honest - It only has high reviews because it is a Christian movie.
Verified purchase
Gave it a shot after seeing the rating on Amazon(it was quite high).

Who is reviewing this thing? It feels like a made-for-tv movie and slowly it all begins to dawn on you - it's a CHRISTIAN MOVIE. The only one who seems to have any common sense(the daughter) is constantly talking about the bible and Jesus. At first I thought it was being ironic but no - THIS IS IT. It's a CHRISTIAN MOVIE.

Acting was bad. Story was bad and predictable. Dialogue was almost like a self-aware satire. I shut it off when the "bullies" in the school said something about the daughter - it was the most ridiculous, poorly executed line (at that point in the movie) that I actually had to stop watching. I've seen more sensible dialogue in The Room.

Counterpoints shown are the typical movie trope reasons anyone is an atheist or less than obsessed with church on Sundays. Christianity is the only answer in this movie and the salvation of all characters. Please, just label these movies for what they are - popcorn flicks for cultists. It certainly tricked me based upon the description and reviews, I won't be tricked again.

A story worth telling
Verified purchase
This was a powerful story of love and redemption, and a story worth telling. Sure, it is a B film, not the best acting, etc, but if you're willing to overlook that, hidden here is a true gem of a film.

Such a sad movie portraying this sweet young girl.
Verified purchase
Her dad needed her as much as she needed him. Thank the good Lord he put these two together. They saved one another! A good man and a really sweet, loving, young girl! I, personally could not have denied her the love and care she needed as she was quite inspiring and really got the best out of people. Great movie with a good lesson of life for a girl and her father (does it matter?). More movies should be made of such loving realities! She saved him with her love in a time she really needed him as a father. Great story, good but not great end.

Why Good Intentions Still Don't Make Good Art
Verified purchase
The acting was excellent, and the dialog was often very witty and clever. The little girl in the title role was delightful and very talented.

But it shares the same flaws as every other Evangelical Christian movie: they put the story and the Art of filmmaking in a back seat to the Message. They lead with Jesus. They hit you upside the head with the Bible. They write as if they are afraid that the Holy Spirit can’t speak for Himself unless they condense the Gospel into a frequently repeated formula.

A disguised sermon does not make a great movie, especially when the disguise is thin. Rarely can a writer preach and still spin a great story. The best storytellers let the Way, the Truth, and the Life seep into their stories because those things permeated their own lives and they couldn't keep them out of their work. The message emerged from the story naturally and organically.

Tulsa was a sweet and charming movie, but it was as others have mentioned, cliched, predictable, and manipulative of the heart-strings. When these flaws are added to the Bible-as-Baseball-Bat approach, even a funny, heartwarming story gets annoying. The adage “Show, don’t tell” should be the mantra of Evangelical writers. Is your main character is a faith-filled believer? Then show how she acts in a Christ-like manner rather than have her drop Jesus’ name between doing things that are precocious, disobedient, and defiant in the kid-who-is-wiser-than-the-adults movie tradition.

Dear Evangelical screenwriters — prioritize making good art. Show, don’t Tell. Story first, let the Message hitch a ride with the Story. Read George MacDonald. He could preach and still tell a good story. Read C.S. Lewis. Read Dostoevsky. Watch Frank Capra movies. Watch A Man For All Seasons. They know how to tell a thoroughly good and thoroughly Christian story.

You’re stuck in a paradigm that says if your movie isn't explicitly about a character accepting Jesus as his personal savior then you have failed to make a movie that evangelizes. Consider the possibility that if you are writing about Truth, Beauty, Joy, Holiness, Peace, Patience, Fortitude, etc… you will open doors in the human heart that the Spirit is perfectly capable of entering.

Awesome film at its core.

Great message of redemption and healing. If one is looking for a Hollywood type screen play, script, acting, and production; look elsewhere. I am trying to prepare for the passing of a loved one and this is exactly what I needed so watch.

Rated 7+ For Age Appropriate
Verified purchase
Okay, so let's question why some "adults" are giving 1 star and demonstrating their distain for this being a "Christian Movie". First, it's rated 7+ which means it's going to be something a 7 year old can understand. It's meant to be simple and easy for a child to understand or interpret. Better yet, if a parent watches it with their child, it gives opportunities for discussion about values, religion, parenting, and believing in something bigger than one's self. Something lacking in today's narcissistic society. Second, if you "adults" sat down with your popcorn expecting to see violence, blood, pornography, profanity, and anti-Christian messaging, then be please avoid films rated 7+. You obviously can't handle the content and child-like acting.
