Matthew is a troubled boy from a broken home. When he vandalizes the local church to get back at his parents, Matthew has to repair the damage to the church to avoid criminal charges. While working at the church, he meets Ernest (John Ratzenberger), an accomplished wood carver who created the intricate woodwork decoration that Matthew destroyed. Now Ernest and Matthew must work together to preserve the church's beautiful antiquity, and along the way, they also manage to restore their faith in God and in life.
It's funny that just a few nights ago, I had a mommy night out with some friends from MOPS. At some point that night, we listed some Christian movies that were and were not worth seeing. After some discussion, we all agreed that most of them are poorly made with some barely watchable acting, but the message is often so touching that it's worth the time to sit down and watch it with your family. I think that WWJD II: The Woodcarver is exactly that. This is not a big budget Hollywood film, and the acting is not fantastic, but the message is wonderful. In this movie, a young boy named Matt began to act out because of his parents' divorce. He vandalizes the church and then comes into contact with Mr. Otto who recently lost his wife to cancer. The two of them develop a friendship that allows Matt to open up to Mr. Otto about the problems he's having with his parents. In return, Mr. Otto is able to find a new purpose and guides Matt back onto the right path. This is a story about faith, friendship and family. I enjoyed watching it and I will be passing my DVD on to my MOPS friends for them to enjoy as well.
