This was a movie that my boys loved, and it also had a great message behind it. The main Character Buck, kept saying that God wants him to do big things! He was focused on doing big things for God and achieving his dreams. That was until he met another character that explained to him, that "God doesn't want you to do big things, God just wants YOU!" When we let go of our goals, our dreams and our desires, and just let God guide us, we don't have to worry about anything. God just wants us to be with Him, to trust Him and to rest in Him. As you learn to hear His voice He will tell you what He wants you to do. We are supposed to love one another. If God puts someone in your path that you can help, you are supposed to help them. In this movie there are several great messages and lessons to learn, all while having fun and going into space. This movie is a great adventure for kids (and adults) of all ages, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about trusting God with your "mission in life" and have fun at the same time.
