Dove Review

In this movie Luke and his two best friends, AJ and Riley, are hanging out together on their last day of summer vacation. They will be starting sixth grade and going to the middle school. Luke and his friends are enjoying the day at the city carnival and getting ready to perform in their band, The Steel Monkeys, at the talent show. Luke is very nervous about having to perform and about having to start school the next day. He just happens to wish that this day would never end when he gets hit in the head with a piece of wood. Through the whole movie, Luke relives the same day. Each time he relives it, he tries to change the way things turn out. In the end, he wishes that he would wake up the next morning to a brand new day and is ready to start school. The film is wholesome. We recommend it for people of all ages and we award it our Dove Seal.
