This movie started out quite good, with themes of self-discovery, an authentic search for hard work, and faith. But then it just goes downhill, taking so many jabs and stabs at Christianity and rural life. In the end (and this isn't much of a spoiler alert) it looks like the cocky protagonist's adventure in small-town USA ends in a tragic fail. I just imagine him going back to yuppy-landia to tell everyone what "real" country people are like. Fortunately, though, we all really still are beloved Children of God, no matter what this movie does to tarnish that beautiful, simple truth.
