The Odd Life of Timothy Green ~ Review

Wow, what can I say about this movie?  Well, I’ll start off by saying that as soon as the previews started on t.v, my 7 year old, Kelsie wanted to see it.  Now I’m sure all she saw on the commercials was a little boy with leaves sprouting on his legs. She {nor we} would realize the actual lessons behind this little boy that came from the garden, with the leaves on his legs, until we sat down and watched the movie.

When I got the confirmation that I was going to get the chance to review this movie, Kelsie was the first one I told.  She was so beside her self with excitement.

We sat down tonight to watch it and I have to admit I knew from the time the movie started, with the couple in the adoption agency, with the reason “Timothy” listed under qualifications that it was going to be a sad movie.

Now, it’s not one that I cried all the way through however, when you realize what’s going to happen; I have a bad habit of predicting how something’s going to end and 99% of the time being right, you will need some tissues handy. 

The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a movie with little life lessons.  All parents make mistakes.  Kids are mean. People can change. And a couple more that you’ll have to figure out on your own.  It’s a good, wholesome family movie.  It’s one you can sit down with your kids, my youngest is 7 and oldest is 13, and watch.  We all enjoyed it greatly.  And I think that y’all will too.  Now, Zack said he read somewhere that this was listed as one of the worst movies of 2012, but THAT was SO WRONG!  I think out of all the movies I’ve seen this year, it was one of top ten that we thought were the best!  So please don’t let any negative reviews effect your decision on watching this movie. 

The Odd Life of Timothy Green would make a great gift for lot’s of people on your holiday list this year!  Pick up your copy today!!
