About the Movie

From The New York Times bestseller comes an inspirational true story of friendship, family and forgiveness. Successful art dealer Ron Hall (Greg Kinnear) and his wife Debbie (Renée Zellweger) seemingly have the perfect life. 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. – Keith Uhlich, Hollywood Reporter, Oct 20, 2017

Rotten: It's so sincere and admirable that it seems churlish to voice objections, but the fact remains that it isn't very good. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, Oct 23, 2017

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. – Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times, Oct 21, 2017

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. – Dave White, TheWrap, Oct 20, 2017
