Storyline

Cory Weissman was a high school basketball star who scored 1,000 points and was expected to be a standout athlete at Gettysburg College. Cory is an upbeat, hard-working freshman getting ready to take over as point guard but, at the beginning of his sophomore year, he suffers a catastrophic stroke. Only quick action by his best friend "Pops" and a race to save his life in the athletic training room prevent him from dying. The film chronicles Cory's against-all-odds comeback from this life-threatening stroke with the help of his mother Tina, a physical therapist, as well as the encouragement of both his dedicated basketball coach and his girlfriend, who loves Cory just the way he is. Despite the many challenges he faces--the difficult physical therapy, an emotional break-up with the girl he loves, and dark moments that threaten to consume him--Cory prevails, with the love and support of his best friend, his family, his school and, most importantly, his own indomitable spirit.

Semi Lame & Predictable
12 April 2015 | by gf-78See all my reviews

Half-ass Hallmark movie of the week. Sugarcoat and sweeten an otherwise admirable true life story. Through in a script with mediocre dialog previously done the exact same way about one million times before and add some run of the mill acting and voilà, you've got yourself this lame movie, good for nothing else than killing some time.

It's as square and predictable as a TV movie can be. Where with just a little more thought, compassion and intelligence added, it could have made it highly enjoyable and interesting. But I guess they choose to follow the rule book and strictly stuck to the Hallmark TV movie concept. Pity...
