If there is any entertainment value to be found in disastrous neurological trauma, this movie is determined to find it. In the television movie Everything That Rises (directed by star Dennis Quaid), the victim is a rancher’s teenage son (Ryan Merriman) who is paralyzed in a truck crash. The film mercifully downplays the excruciating details of the character’s handicap in favor of ambling along predictably to a feel-good finale. C+
