Time Out says

1 out of 5 stars

The titular reward in this preachy family drama is lofty life lessons imparted to trust-fund brat Jason (Fuller) posthumously by his billionaire grandpa (Garner). While carrying out character-building tasks, Jason picks up a girlfriend with a terminally ill daughter (Breslin) given to musings on subjects like God hand-painting butterflies. If you missed the money-isn’t-everything message, an end-credits recap outlines the story’s salient points—if you’d known, you could’ve skipped the rest. (Opens Fri; AMC Empire 25.)—Erin Clements
