The Odd Life of Timothy Green I think is a breath of fresh air from all the violence that is in so many movies lately. I was a little worried that this movie would be a bit boring and predictable but I was wrong. It is really just an uplifting movie.

The story starts out in a room at an adoption agency. They sit down with the adoption people to talk about why they would be good candidates to adopt. Cindy (Played by Jennifer Garner) and Jim (played by Joel Edgerton) start to tell their story which is the entire movie. It takes you back to when the story begins when Cindy and Jim Green find out that they will not be able to have children of their own. Their heart were broken. That night after a lot of crying they decide to write out what their dream child would be like.
They bury the box of wishes in their garden. There “grew” Timothy (play by CJ Adams). Timothy has leaves at the bottom of his legs that you assume is from the garden. You sit there and wonder what the significance of the leaves are through out the whole movie. I am not going to give you the whole story because you really need to see it with your own eyes, but lets just say it is a fun story to hear. People literally would crying one minute, laughing another and gasping at other times.
As the picture starts to unfold (which is somewhat predictable) you still find that you have invested yourself in this movie and crying along with the rest of the theater and find yourself wishing that what you think is going to happen, not happen.
It makes you feel good about life again.
That there is still “normal” people out there who live “normal” lives. With love and family around some supportive, some not but in the end you realize that family is all that matters.
This movie is rated PG but I think it is just because that kids under about 8 would get a little bored in the movie. It will go over their heads for the most part, but you be the judge of that. There is no scary scenes (unless you think the rain storms are scary). I don’t remember any swearing in it at all. They cover a lot of topics in the movie from bullying to “getting” the girl (don’t worry it is not what you think). So I say Go! See it! Love Timothy as much as the rest of us did! It is worth seeing!
