Drama - This is both a prequel and sequel to the faith- and family-friendly
drama The Ultimate Gift, and as such has no profanity and very
minimal alcohol and violent content. Even so, this slow and talky
film has no kid
appeal and is mostly targeted to older moviegoers. One of the key
lead roles has been recast from the first film, and recognizable
names such as Peter Fonda show up only briefly.
Washington PostFull Review Poor But such sloppy attention to period detail is the least of the film's worries. Such gaffes will likely not be noticed by viewers, most of whom will have fallen asleep by that point.

In The Ultimate Gift we met Red Stevens, a successful businessman and philanthropist who gets to the end of his life and finds that, with all his success, he has one fatal flaw: a totally dysfunctional family. Through his grandson, Jason, Red attempts to instill his values and preserve his life's legacy by giving him a series of gifts leading to the ultimate gift—an opportunity to manage a multi-billion dollar foundation.
The Ultimate Life takes place three years later, and Jason (Logan Bartholomew) is running his grandfather's foundation, being sued by his greedy relatives, and can't seem to find enough time or energy to keep his relationship with his beloved Alexia (Ali Hillis) a priority.
Jason, at his wit's end, is given a never-before-seen journal by Red's life-long lawyer and friend, Hamilton (Bill Cobbs). As he reads each page, Jason is transported back in time to an incredible world where the young Red Stevens (Austin James) strives to overcome a life of poverty on his way to finding success and becoming a billionaire.
With everything he loves hanging in the balance, Jason, through reading the journal, once again learns from his grandfather's first person account of success and failure, and finds his way back to The Ultimate Life.
