||Synopsis: Cory Weissman, a high school basketball star who scored 1,000 points in high school and was expected to be a standout athlete at Gettysburg College. Cory is an upbeat, hard-working freshman getting ready to take over as point guard--but at the beginning of his sophomore year, he suffers a catastrophic stroke. Only quick action by his best friend Pops and a race to save his life in the athletic training room prevent him from dying. The film chronicles Cory's against-all-odds comeback from this life-threatening stroke with the help of his mother Tina, a physical therapist, as well as the encouragement of both his dedicated basketball coach and his girlfriend, who loves Cory just the way he is. Despite the many challenges he faces--the difficult physical therapy, an emotional break-up with the girl he loves, and dark moments that threaten to consume him--Cory prevails, with the love and support of his best friend, his family, his school and, most importantly, his own indomitable spirit.

The lead actor of Disney Channel fame hit it out of the park. He gave
full commitment to this character. I totally believed him as an East
Coast ballplayer facing adversity.
One thing that was annoying, yet obviously true to life, was how all
these white kids were talking in colloquial black cadence. But I'm sure
the real Cory told the actors that that's the way they spoke. It makes
Every character was a super nice person, which seemed a bit
manufactured. But perhaps this kid had luck with people, if not with
health. The most interesting part was the difference in the two
girlfriends. Both were nice human beings, but they had different
approaches to life that were highlighted effectively.
Congratulations to the writers also, who phrased the emotions
beautifully without overdoing it.
Throughout I found myself wondering if the guy was too self-absorbed,
before and during his trauma. Most "jock" types do sort of see
themselves as the star in the movie of their life, so I assume that was
true. Yet we do see him, with the aid of awkward narration (my one
criticism), take an interest in other's lives and forgive another. In
fact that was part of the theme that things happen for a reason.
If there was a reason, it was probably not solely so that he could be
an inspiration to others. It was rather so that he could personally
transform from a cocky, self-absorbed stud into a loving, supportive
person with wider vision.
The climactic scene was recreated with taste and reserve. It's hard to
avoid clichés in those scenes, but they didn't lay it on too thick. It
was based on a real situation anyways.
I think it was a T.V. movie, so they couldn't use profanity. But
chances are in real life there was plenty of profanity in the locker
room and during arguments. It was a bit too "Hallmark-oriented" for a
true story of sports grit.
Also, I needed more background on the supporting characters. How did he
know his best friend? Where was Cory actually from. We see him at home
and then at college, but he mentioned once that they were several hours
apart. How did he meet the first girlfriend? Did this all really happen
during warm months? Because we don't see the freezing cold snowy
weather that would normally characterize that part of the country.
Also, what is he doing now? I know this was made only a couple years
later, but is he coaching, working, doing more school? Is he still with
