But when their faith and family are tested, an unlikely bond with a homeless drifter (Djimon Hounsou) leads them on a remarkable journey that forges an everlasting friendship. Same Kind of Different As Me shows how a simple act of kindness can change everything.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The very horrible complexities of racism and intolerance are simplified in ways inherent to many a Hollywood and faith-based film, all in the aim of glib uplift that may salve the individual spirit but solves absolutely nothing.
Rotten: It's so sincere and admirable that it seems churlish to voice objections, but the fact remains that it isn't very good.
Rotten: A film with a lovely, life-affirming, uplifting message - unfortunately delivered in such a heavy-handed, gooey-sweet manner that audiences will exit the theater in a near-diabetic coma.
Rotten: A blandly good looking, no frills, reasonably competent and occasionally emotional Message Movie, one whose message favors a color-blind approach to race relations, one designed to work entirely in favor of the desires of white people.
Not a real well known movie but I love the story and acting was very good.

Worth the drive
We had to drive 1.5 hours to see this movie. My teen daughters, Husband and Mother loved it. It is a must see. Take your hankie. I will go again with friends even though we have to drive 1.5 hours.
