It started off slow. Thought it was going to be about the immature minds of adolescent's. Then Mr. Sperry came in and the rest was good. Script has a few surprises. Makes you cry and wish every childhood could be this pure instead of the hell so many bring to the lives of the young. I'm glad I came across this movie and am uplifted by its content.

Among the wholesome hi-jinks, The Secrets presents a stark choice: don't become a Christian and burn forever, or become one and spend eternity with the people who made this movie. If you dislike movies, children, adults, and life in general, this is the film for you.

Ha - interesting tags on this movie. First of all I am not a christian but I have always appreciated the generosity of spirit and kindness of true christianity. I was looking for some gentle diversion from life and I found it. Sometimes it's not easy to find super kind and wise people such as Jonathan Sperry.

Excellent movie. It is hard to find movies like this that teach something good to children.

Lots of wisdom and love shared in this movie, the hero is a wonderful man of integrity, someone all growing boys should have in their lives.

I recommend this movie...great for families/kids with a strong Christian message. It kept all four of my kids ages 6-12 interested.

This movie is a little boring, I find all the religious parts of it a little too much. If you follow the christian faith you may like this movie for the lessons that Jonathan Sperry teaches the young men in this movie.
