What we thought:  This is a touching and heartwarming tale of an almost 13 year old boy's journey to find the meaning of life according to his father 5 years after his father passes away.  This movie is great for the whole family to watch together and may help kids understand what happens after the loss of a loved one and  how to keep on living.  The lessons this movie teaches are great life lessons that will appeal to all ages.  The movie is generally lighthearted and funny and at times even magical:)  We really enjoyed our family movie night watching this DVD.  ABCD Diaries gives Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life an A!
