Tuesday Couch Potatoes

The theme for TCP this is week is about For the Love of Children. Though I'm a little late with this entry, I know you'll find this film very inspiring too.

When his wealthy grandfather dies, trust fund baby Jason Stevens anticipates a big inheritance. Instead, his grandfather has devised a crash course on life: twelve gifts designed to challenge Jason in improbable ways, sending him on a journey of self-discovery and forcing him to determine what is most important in life: money or happiness. Jason thought his inheritance was the gift of money and lots of it--but Jason thought wrong. He had a very simple relationship with his impossibly wealthy Grandfather, Howard Stevens. He hated him. No heart-to-heart talks, no warm fuzzies, just cold hard cash. So of course he figured that when Red died, the whole reading of the will thing would be another simple cash transaction. He figured that his Grandfather's money would allow him to continue living in the lifestyle to which he had become accustomed. But what Red left him was anything but simple. Red instead devised a plan for Jason to experience a crash course on life. Twelve tasks, which Red calls a gift, each challenging Jason in improbable ways, the accumulation of which would change him forever. source

I also seen this movie, and I was touched and learned a lot. Actually it's pretty interesting. Sometimes, it's not the money that's important to inherit, its the importance of life and happines.

Kikamz, I highly recommend this film, too. And that girl actress, Abigail Breslin, is showing up everywhere, isn't she? I've also seen her in "Raising Helen," "Little Miss Sunshine," "No Reservations," "Nim's Island," "My Sister's Keeper." She's good.
