Upside – Review & DVD Giveaway

BUB Profile

It’s all how you look at it From the looks of things, Solomon White
has a well-mapped future. Finish his senior year of high school, select an elite
university, continue his lacrosse career, and reap the rewards of success on
whichever road life takes him.

But a devastating hit on the lacrosse field leaves his world literally turned
upside down. Will he be able to gain the perspective needed to face his new reality?

We loved this movie! From the youngest to the oldest we all enjoyed watching this movie together.

What would you do if your whole world was turned upside down? Literally upside down? Would you completely fall apart, or would you have the faith to keep going. To keep walking with God and doing His will?

That’s what Soli had to decided. Should he let his world completely fall apart because of his injury? Or should he follow God?

The same decision many of us have to make on a daily basis.

Our favorite scene was in the graveyard, when they were letting the blind women drive a car.

“Watch the tree!” “I can’t watch the tree!!”

“How did I do?” “We’re not dead.”

We were literally rolling around laughing the scene is that funny!

There is one college party scene, where Soli is led into the party, not knowing he was going to a party, as he was just visiting the campus. When he realized where he was, he quickly left. Definitely a good message for our teens.

If your looking for a great movie for your family to watch, you should check out Upside. My whole family loved it.
