Item Description...
Craig Shergold (Thomas Sangster) is an eight year old cancer patient who, during the course of his treatment, manages to shock the world by breaking The Guinness World Record for receiving get-well cards, amassing an astounding 1.3 million cards from around the globe. But as amazing as that is, it's only the beginning of the miracles. When a skeptical reporter (Kirk Cameron) is sent to investigate the "real facts" behind this incredible true-life story, he is expecting to uncover another over-sensationalized account of God supposedly intervening in the lives of faithful believers. What he finds is nowhere close to what he's expecting. A heartarming story of love and faith in the face of death, The Miracle of the Cards will bring tears to your eyes and make even the toughest skeptic examine their own faith.

Touching  Aug 10, 2007
How closely this overtly Christian film hews to the "true" story I don't know, but I thought it worthwhile. The principals carry their parts off well, though Catherine Oxenberg, the American actress who plays the English mother, has trouble with the English accent throughout and doesn't quite get the English mannerisms across.

The flow of the picture is a tad too easy-going, considering the harrowing nature of the boy's illness, but, in general, the tone is appropriate. The brief appearance of Richard Thomas is one of the highlights.

Parts of the film evidently were shot in the U.K., but most of it appeared to be made in Vancouver. The frequent display of the Union Jack is a contrivance intended to add some authenticity to the shots, but is not typical of the British, who generally do not express their patriotism that way. There's quite a bit of mild swearing of the British variety, but it will go past most American viewers.
Not as good or as bad as the other reviews would claim...!  Mar 14, 2006
When I learned the premise that The Miracle of the Cards is based on, that discovery was met with an inward groan. Here it is: a young boy with a brain tumor, not likely to survive, wants to break the Guinness Book of World Records count for receiving get-well cards. I was glad to see that the movie is based on a true story, at least, and not some urban legend or internet hoax.

The story is told mostly through flashbacks during a sceptical reporter's interviews with the young patient's parents. From the mother's nightmares of seeing her son in a coffin (which began before his first symptoms), to his hospitalization and diagnosis with a rare form of cancer and his pursuit of the record for most cards received, this sentimental story is worth watching if you can remind yourself that it is based on a true story and that it's not a sappy takeoff on an urban legend / internet hoax.

Good production values, a few solid performances and what could have been a more compelling story line are unfortunately offset somewhat by a premise that has been defamed by internet hoaxes and by the length of the film at 89 minutes. Whether or not an hour and a half was needed to tell this story is debatable, but when a movie feels too long, it probably is.
Very touching movie, watched it with my children.. God can use many things to answer our prayers...  Dec 18, 2005
I was compelled to watch this movie after I read 2 reviews on this site stating it was an Insult to God, that this Mother gave all her glory to the Cards, stating the movie should be thrown in the trash & ends with scriptures -- Then an earlier review saw only Hypocrisy. I'm thinking, WHAT??!! A movie like this, I just had to take a look! As a Christian myself (obviosly not the kind they are, what would they have done - given their son a sermon every day while he laid in the hospital bed ?). I DID NOT see this Mother giving GLory to the cards at all, I counted the times she thanked God, and they were MANY ...What I seen was a Mother who was guided, who believed, who hoped, who dared to do whatever it took to save her son's life (which is love), she saw the light in his eyes when he opened his cards, he believed all those people sending cards were praying for him, this gave him Hope/Encouragement -which his Doctor ordered the parents to give him, what he NEEDED. How can one not see God (or inspiration) at work in this? Life is full of wonderful things in wonderful unexpected ways, even in the midst of some of the chaos, He is there. This card campaign -which spanned the globe- might have led to a Guinness Book World record, but the more important thing was it led to a Doctor in the United States who was able to perform the surgery to save his life. So God Used the "Cards", or He allowed the Card Campaign to be used to bring these important people into this child's life-to save Him. What could be more glorious than that, what Joy to these parents, what answered prayer. It's an incredible story, and it's TRUE--which makes it even better! Funny thing is, all these years later, those crazy cards are still coming, thanks to some chain letters on the internet that just won't die. I think all of us should be this sensitive to what gives OUR CHILDREN hope/encouragement in a time such as this.
This is a great inspiring movie based on a true story. The cast is perfect and the movie reminds us that God is still in the miracle business! Throughly worth your time to watch this one! There are interviews with the cast members as a bonus feature!
A BEAUTIFUL FILM!  Jul 2, 2005
I happened to just be browsing yesterday at Border's and found this unknown (to me) film. Apparently it was produced by PAX. I figured anything with Kirk Cameron in it ought to be worthwhile. I had no idea that what makes this movie is the inspiring story of a little british boy who has a brain tumor and the never waivering faith of his mother who sets out with help from many (and the shining light of God's presence) to give her son the will to fight and to live and know that he will be cured! Based on a true story, the film is replete with an unforgettable musical score, top notch direction and marvelous performances by the entire cast! It is not over-sentimentally sappy and never preachy. It is a honest depiction of God's incredbile working power! The one negative review in this forum is obviously from one cynical viewer who has missed the point of the entire film. Believe the four and five star reviews on this one folks. This is indeed a beautiful and inspiring film!
