The Wager, DVD
Very slow and disjointed.
Good story line but it never really got off the ground.

zzz...sorry, love Randy Travis music but an actor he's not. The story line was weird. Don't know why I kept watching...perhaps in hopes it would get better? It didn't.

The Wager was so so, not something I would want to see over and over again,

This movie was terrible. In fact, I found it to be a hugely sexist, John Hagee-pushing, complete waste of my time. Doctrinally, it was scattered all over the place.I couldn't figure out how the Bible verse placards scattered throughout had anything to do with him doing the big hero thing at the end. I suppose the whole "wager" thing was a modern-day story of Job??? Spoiler - Not to mention that his wife rushes back to him at the end without him actually doing a thing to change his marriage. Oh, and the way they portrayed his co-actress was pathetic; but we all know that ALL actresses are blond slutty bimbos whose only purpose in life is to seduce righteous men - right?? I like Randy Travis, and he did okay with his acting, but I thought the whole story line was ridiculous and insulting. I guess the main message to Christian women is that they are expected to come running to the rescue of their poor busy, harrassed husbands - period - keep up the public show because it will rescue your husband in the end. They actually had a fair idea for the movie, and some of the movie effects had a good feel, but the script totally fell short. Reeeally disappointing.
