The preaching and the overt evangelizing is kept to a minimum in the film. This is the story of how young basketball protege Cody Linley who after collapsing during a game is discovered to have a brain tumor the size of an orange.
Young Linley was saddled with the nickname Hoovey after as a toddler he got his arm sucked and stuck in a vacuum cleaner. Father Patrick Warburton is a farmer and fireman and mother Alyssa Stoner are a hard working church going couple and their faith helps see them through.
Two other performances of note are Charles Robinson as Linley's high school coach and Brandon Mychal Smith as another basketball prodigy on the team who fears that Linley's handicap will kick in at the wrong time and mess things up for him.
Hoovey is a nice story that can be shown in more places than Christian movie nights.
