#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Simon Birch tells the story of Joe and Simon’s heart-warming journey of friendship. Simon Birch was born with a condition that makes him much smaller than all the other kids in town. Now, due to his condition, Simon thinks God made him this way for a reason and highly believes in God. Together, Joe and Simon go on a journey of trust and friendship to find the answers to many things. Their friendship is put to the test when some unfortunate events happen.
Plot: Simon Birch and Joe Wenteworth are boys who have a reputation for being oddballs. Joe never knew his father, and his mother, Rebecca, is keeping her lips sealed no matter how much he protests. Simon, meanwhile, is an 11-year-old dwarf whose outsize personality belies his small stature. Indeed, he often assails the local reverend with thorny theological questions and joins Joe on his quest to find his biological father.

Really good movie, very little flaws.
There was something that compelled me to see this movie. I don’t know what it was, maybe subliminal messages in the TV ads or something. After all, why would I watch a movie like this when some of my favorite films are “Blood Sucking Freaks”, “Nekromantik”, and “Cutting Moments”?
Anyhow, I eventually rented this movie and watched it, and to my surprise, I really enjoyed it. The story was very well acted, well written, and tear-jerking.
Sure, there were a FEW flaws, which was why I rated it with an “8”, such as some ridiculous, unrealistic plot twists, and the film’s attempt to be TOO upsetting. It was like the director/writer said “All right. We’re gonna make this film for the sole purpose of having our viewers cry, dammit! And we’re not just gonna have ’em cry once, we’re gonna MAKE them cry THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE LENGTH OF THE MOVIE! And they’re gonna like it, dammit!” (Not that I cried THIS much, but you can tell they obviously tried.)
All in all, a good film that shouldn’t be avoided.
I can’t believe how many people say they love this movie
This film is a travesty. It claims to be inspired by John Irving’s novel “A Prayer for Owen Meany” but it utterly lacks any of the charm and deep meaning the novel carries. The film’s characters are cardboard cutouts of human beings, the plot is pure Disneyana, the spiritual message is pap.
Somewhere there is a leak. Someone somewhere read this novel and turned it into this screenplay, not unlike someone who hears The Beatles’ “Hey Jude” and turns it into the version you hear while riding in an elevator. Whoever this person is, (s)he deserves to be taken out and, well, forced to watch this movie.
Do yourself a huge favor. Skip the trip to the video store and go to the library instead. “A Prayer for Owen Meany” is a beautiful book with layers upon layers of meaning. This film is a sad zombie of the book. Simon Birch *looks* like Owen Meany, but he is possessed by a different spirit.
