GIVEAWAY COMMENTS AND ENTRIES ARE CLOSED


I really enjoyed The Christmas Lodge movie. So, when I got the chance to review another of Thomas Kinkade's presentations, I gladly accepted. 


A Mile In His Shoes is based on the true story of Mickey Tussler (played by cutie patootie Luke Schroder, look-alike son of Ricky Schroder). Mickey is an 18-year-old farm boy with Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism. Minor League coach Arthur Murphy (played by cutie-patootie Dean Cain), discovers Mickey's pitching ability by accident. 


Coach Murphy convinces Mickey's parents to let Mickey try out for the team. The team is transformed ... not only with their game, but their spirit as well. Mickey's growth as a player and as an individual is only a small part of the changes in the other characters throughout the movie.


This was Luke Schroder's first big roll in his acting career. I thought he did a marvelous job and was convincing in his roll. I found myself on the verge of tears for several scenes. In the whole movie, I found one word that could be seen as objectionable. One scene could be viewed as intense for younger children. 


Overall, the movie was wonderful. It gives a gentle introduction to autism and shows it in a favorable light. While Mickey had some issues to overcome, he wasn't limited by them.
