This new film moves along smoothly until Grandpa's most preposterous mission - which needlessly drags out the movie -- takes Jason to a severely caricatured Ecuador.
Ebert & RoeperMarch 20, 2007
I think urban sophisticates can be people of faith who want to see movies, occasionally, that don't have the four-letter words, and I do embrace religion, but I think they have to be better than this.
Boston GlobeMarch 17, 2007
Christian charity, in this movie, seems like a side-effect of capitalism.

If you missed the money-isn't-everything message, an end-credits recap outlines the story's salient points -- if you'd known, you could've skipped the rest.

[James] Garner is good, and so is Brian Dennehy as a crusty ranch owner; Abigail Breslin, playing a leukemia patient, demonstrates that she was not a one-note wonder in Little Miss Sunshine.

The Ultimate Gift is kind of like a feel-good Saw for churchgoers, minus the sadistic games of death.

It's Self-Help: The Movie, and it stinks to high heaven.

I haven't even read the book, and I know it has to be better than the movie.
Spirituality and PracticeMarch 30, 2007
A parabolic film about one selfish young man's spiritual transformation.
Sacramento News & ReviewMarch 19, 2007
The film squeaks by on a combination of reliable old pros...and appealing newcomers...
Austin ChronicleMarch 18, 2007
The result is a deep desire for those Hollywood execs to remember that Christian doesn't have to equal brain-dead.
