Stuck in a vacuum cleaner

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.

The biggest flaw is that the movie is totally predictable till last.My question is 'What was this movie made for'?If it's for inspiration we have masterpieces like Theory of Everything.Only difference is that on this movie,the family praises god even if they sneeze.I can't understand why such a movie was made.

This film is based on the life of Eric "Hoovy" Elliot (Cody Linley) and family. Hoovy loved to play basketball and was hoping to play at the college level when he became ill. After an MRI, "It's a tumor." (Feel free to use your Arnold voice) Hoovey's days were over and the farm was in financial trouble. Hoovey manages to overcome which they credit to faith and at no time the skilled neurosurgeon who operated on him.

The film is meant to be inspirational, and repeats the lesson of Job a few times. A transfer student from Atlanta (Brandon Mychal Smith) provides some minor internal conflict. The acting is passable. While the film was designed to be emotional and heart felt, it wasn't over powering.
