Modestly endearing tale set in small-town Tennessee about a reformed good-for-nothing (Johnny Knoxville) who, with his rags-to-riches story facing a reversal of fortune, seeks reconciliation with the daughter he abandoned as an infant -- now a precocious, musically gifted teenager (Sophie Traub) -- when the girl's mother (Elizabeth Banks) shows up on his doorstep with news that she is dying and asks him to take over the parenting reins after she is gone. Directed by Katrina Holden Bronson, the film has its narrative bumps but they are smoothed over by its heartfelt emotion and redemptive message about hope and second chances. An implied sexual encounter, some sexual discussions, underage drinking and smoking, a mildly irreverent scene, brief fisticuffs, and scattered crude language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
