It’s a well-made little inspirational drama featuring both a familiar older star (James Garner) and a new one (Abigail Breslin).

William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

There’s nothing wrong with the moral of The Ultimate Gift’s story; in fact there’s everything right about it. But director Michael O. Sajbel too often succumbs to movie-of-the-week sentimentality and starchy pacing. Still, Breslin’s captivating performance reminds you why she was recently nominated for an Oscar.

Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

Although cynics likely will reject The Ultimate Gift as warmed-over Capra-corn, this predictable but pleasant drama based on Jim Stovall’s popular novel may be prized by those with a taste for inspirational uplift and heart-tugging sentiment.
