The Odd Life Of Timothy Green DVD Review
'Tis the season for family movies! There are lots of movies out there to watch with your family during the Christmas holidays. The genres are numerous, but nothing is better than a good old family movie. My family was excited to get the chance to review the Odd Life of Timothy Green. It is a Disney movie and we had heard great things about it from friends.
About the movie:
From Academy Award-nominated writer/director Peter Hedges (Dan in Real Life, What’s
Eating Gilbert Grape), and starring Golden Globe® winner Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton,
Oscar® winner Dianne Wiest and CJ Adams as Timothy Green, comes this highly imaginative
story about a happily married couple who can’t wait to start a family but can only dream
about what their child would be like. Then one stormy night young Timothy shows up on their
doorstep. Soon they and the small town in which they live learn that sometimes the
unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts. The story is written by Ahmet Zappa
(“American Gangster,” “Changeling”).
I am really excited to tell you that we loved it! The movie is a heart warming story with lots of cute twists and turns. The characters are warm and very likeable. I have to admit I think Jennifer Garner does a fabulous job in this movie and CJ Adams is very cute as Timothy Green! Our entire family enjoyed the movie and it did keep everyone's attention the entire time. This movie would be an ideal addition to the family DVD collection and would make a wonderful Christmas gift. It made the Shelly's Bits and Pieces Holiday Gift Guide for that reason!
