Writer/Director Corbin Bernsen (25 Hill) presents a fun-filled family comedy starring George Newbern (Father of the Bride), Megyn Price (Rules of Engagement) and Taylor Spreitler (Days of our Lives).
Martin Taylor has no clue who his teenage daughter is dating, why his son only communicates with an electronic sign outside his bedroom door, or why his youngest child only watches religious TV. Convinced the family needs to reconnect, Martin surprises his nest with a little experiment - he locks them in their own home with no power, no heat, no running water, and absolutely no contact with the world outside! The sudden holiday staycation isn't what the Taylors had in mind for the weekend, but they'll have to team up to prove they can survive Dad's wacky mission. With a heartfelt message and some persistence, one little member of the family helps put their priorities back in the pews, because they'll need all the faith they have to get through this. Rated PG. Approx. 90 minutes.

However once again a so called "Christian" movie with not much Christian in it, with the exception of the adorable little girl who quotes scriptures randomly throughout the movie.
