Family DVD Pick Of The Week: ‘The List’

the-listWhat does it profit a man to gain the world?

By the age of 12, Jack Stone had experienced more life grit than most adults. In a depression, he decided to grab the controls, make a list as his road map and set out to accomplish life his way. Fifteen years of life on the street and clawing up from the bottom later, we find Jack (Scott Pryor) as a successful lawyer. He’s done well on his own, crossed a lot off his list and added more. But he hasn’t factored God into the plan.

God hasn’t seemed to be around in the past; can Jack trust him with the future? As life continues to take its toll and tragedies strike, will Jack relinquish the power of his list in order to gain all he’s ever wanted?

The acting in this film is superb. I loved the story and the pace. It is a great couple movie as it brings up all the issues that couples of faith struggle with.

It addresses the truth is, money can’t buy everything. For example, money can’t buy peace of mind, good friends, a close-knit family, work-life balance, a worry-free day, good karma, time to relax, good health, a golden anniversary, quality time with your kids, a new beginning, natural beauty, happy memories, to name just a few.

Many people are actually poor because the only thing they have is money. That is what the list delivers in buckets.
