Gives valuable lessons in a very entertaining way. Some spiritual movies are dry and preachy. This one has a clear message about how to live a more fulfilling life, yet it is presented in a way that is accessible to a wide audience. Elements of humor, drama, adventure -- it has it all. For my taste, a few too many visual special effects, but that may be what's needed to keep the video-game generation interested. Look at "Huck Finn" -- hardly the king's English, but Twain's style made it more broadly appealing, which helped to expose the important themes to a wider audience. This movie has a refreshing new perspective, especially these days when so many other "new" movies are actually thoughtless remakes. Looking forward to more from this crew.
