Same Kind of Different as Me is not something I'd typically seek out, it's more like something my mom would force me to watch in an effort to save my soul, but the society folks I watch films with on the last Friday of every month were clamoring to see this, so I endured. Despite being associated with Pure Flix, a brand that's quality of work is generally lacking, Same Kind of Different as Me is bolstered by strong performances from Renée Zellweger, Djimon Hounsou, and Greg Kinnear. It's also rather cinematic as it tries to switch up the inspirational game with editing and production value. WOW! While the central themes still come flying right at your face, Same Kind of Different as Me is still a rather effective, yet not entirely original, sob story that actually made me shed some tears.
