Broad audience TV movie about an ex-con doing the right thing
29 May 2001 | by nathanloftisSee all my reviews

Spooner explores two very common genres in one. The ex-con who tries a different life, and discovers it can be worthwhile, as well as those cheesy teacher-student dramas that have been milked for so much emotional response during the 80's and some of the nineties. Worth watching with kids, this movie has good values and all, but really no depth of plot or character at all. Pretty standard friendly family fare. Reminded me of Hoosiers for some reason. Haven't seen it since I was in elementary school.
