Good family movie
Verified purchase
I very much enjoyed the movie even though you were sure of the outcome. I liked that the boy was kind and well mannered from the beginning. Many of these shows show the kid as rebellious with serious behavior issues. I much prefer how this was written.

Gotta love John Schneider (Dukes of Hazard) for his ability to be involve in christian entertainment as of late. I have a number of christian films with him either in the starring role or supporting actor roles. Any christian film with him in it is bound to good. So far I have "WWJD", "I Am Gabriel", "You've Got A Friend", "Luke Warm", and "Hidden Secrets" to name a few. You Got A Friend is about healing a disfunctional family and reuniting friendship with christian values at the heart of the film. You will not be disappointed.

stating he wanted to do good, wholesome family friendly movies

I will buy any movie with John Schneider, since he left the Dukes of Hazzard. LOL, never watched it. I saw John on a Christian show years ago, stating he wanted to do good, wholesome family friendly movies, to offset all the trash out of Hollywood. He has done just that! He is seen by the town as a nut and really a rough loner, that nobody wants to deal with. His character begins that way but alas, a young boy turns his life around in a beautiful, healthy way. Plenty of laughs and some saddness for the both of them.

If you love John, you will love another great role he pulls off.

MUST SEE if overcoming trials and a happy ending is important
Verified purchase
Clean family film, full of virtues and second chances; falling short and doing right in the end. My wife and I alone loved it, teared up a little and were surprised at what the mean guy did in the end.

Great movie
Verified purchase
This is a wonderful movie, very family oriented. John Schneider, who is one of my favorite actors,does a magnificent performance. The ending of the movie is great. All of the actors are great, but since I favor John Schneider, I am partial to him. I only wish the movie would have gone into further detail abuot his friendship with the boys father and why the uncle was so adament against soap box derby racing. But the story has a great ending and you can let your imagination run and decide what happens after the end. I think it was one of the best movies I've ever seen.

What a moving movie!
Verified purchase
Being a John Schneider fan, I knew I had to see "You've Got A Friend." But, I had no idea it was going to move me the way it did. It was definitely predictable, but is just a such a feel good kind of movie that you have to watch it again and again. I won't give away any of the plot, but if you're in the mood to be moved, then this is your movie. Anyways, I checked out the writer on IMDB, and he's the little boy from Poltergeist. And I guess he's a writer now too. I just watched his other film "29000 Wishes. 1 Regret", and... wow, I was sobbing by the end. It's about this couple who have lost everything during the recession and decided to charge up their credit cards before ending their lives. I won't tell you if they go through with it, but it's definitely worth watching. Talk about a timely movie! And the actors who played the twenty something couple are pretty darn good too.

You've Got a Friend
Verified purchase
I was so happy when I found out this was finally out to purchase. I loved this movie from the first time I saw it. A young boy who lost his parents goes to live with his aunt and uncle. There is much turmoil and difficulty to overcome. All the actors were perfect and the movie is well worth having in your collection. Great price, thanks Amazon.
