The sequel (and prequel) to the award-winning The Ultimate Gift
Between the pressure of running a foundation started by his late grandfather, being sued by his greedy extended family, and seeing his beloved Alexia leave on an extended mission trip to Haiti, Jason Stevens' world is unraveling. But when Jason discovers the lifelong journal his grandfather began as a Depression-era lad, Red Stevens' writings transport Jason to a front-row seat on an incredible rags-to-riches ride. With everything he loves hanging in the balance, Jason hopes he can discover THE ULTIMATE LIFE. THE ULTIMATE LIFE reminds us some things are worth more than money!

  1. I wanted to see this when it first came out but missed it. I will be sure to watch it when it comes to hallmark movie channel.

    1. Wonderful! Hope you were able to see it, when it premiered.

  2. Yay! I loved Logan Bartholomew in the Love Comes Softly movies and I can't wait to see him in The Ultimate Life. He's so handsome!

    1. I agree, Carrie. Logan was wonderful in the "Love" movies! He's a great actor! Would love to see him in more Hallmark Movies!

  3. I loved this movie! It was great to finally put all the pieces together from the previous movie!! :)

    1. That sounds interesting! I'm glad this movie was helpful in filling in those missing pieces!

  4. This was an excellent follow-up to the original, The Ultimate Gift film. Not exactly what I expected, but still so good. :)

    1. I'm glad you liked it, Rissi! You're are a great movie reviewer - so I value your opinion! Thanks so much! :)

  5. This movie was so awesome. Loved the way it answered so many questions. Didn't know if I was going to like it or not without Drew Fuller but Logan Bartholomew was great. Drew Waters was great!!!! Okay so how did the Judge rule. I just took it that Hamilton's attitude about the whole thing was it was a joke and it was a sure win for Jason.

    1. Sounds like this was a great movie for answering those unanswered questions in the previous movie.

      Though, I haven't seen it, myself... it looks like, from the video clips I've seen, that Logan and Drew are great in it! I'm so glad to have this validated by someone who has seen it.

      Thank you for sharing your opinion on the movie!

  6. Hello!
    Thank you for leaving such a nice comment on my blog and following it!

    I enjoyed the Ultimate gift, so I would love to watch this.

  7. Looking for where to buy The Ultimate Life on DVD before The Ultimate Legacy comes out, my husband has not yet seen the second movie. Please tell me where to find it.
