"The Odd Life of Timothy Green," a Disney production, told the story of a childless couple who had finally given up on having a child. Upon their final decision to stop trying, they put together ideas of what their child would have been like. Burying this box that held their paper dreams, they vowed to move on. However moving on was to be in a different direction that they ever could have imagined. Timothy, their new son, sprouted up from the garden to give them a more plentiful bounty than they thought possible. Jennifer Garner (Cindy Green), Joel Edgerton ( Jim Green), and CJ Adams (Timothy Green) starred in this film. CJ Adams, from "Dan in Real Life," stole every scene with his cherubic looks and huge puppy dog eyes. Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton played the not-so-perfect parents perfectly.
Although I thought this was a predictable tear-jerker, I enjoyed it. Not having kids that would go to this movie (17 and 19), I think I could have skipped it or waited for the DVD. This would be a great movie to take your elementary school kid to and feel comfortable knowing that it's safe. No bad language, a little first crush sweetness, positivity galore, and love abounds in this movie. The icing on the cake is the moral of the story is a great one to hammer home to kids just before they head back to school.
