Gracie1 Stars Out Of 5painfully bad movieAugust 8, 2016GracieQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I usually enjoy movies with Lacey Chabert - she's an extremely likeable actress - but this movie was just painful to watch. The writing was full of tacky Christian-ese, there was nothing in the behavior of the Christians depicted that would meaningful engage (much draw) a non-believer to consider Christ, and the only way I could stand to finish it was to think of it as a parody of Christian dating sites. Even then the laughter was accompanied by groans! It was disturbingly shallow both theologically and dramatically, full of cliches and stereotypes. Save your money!
KCSalvo5 Stars Out Of 5My new favouriteDecember 14, 2015KCSalvoQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Lovely Christian based journey for the lead character. Entertaining, engaging and uplifting. This is intended as a light piece of entertaing fiction based on Christian values and I think it works pretty well to that end.
JamesAlbany,NYAge: 45-54Gender: male2 Stars Out Of 5pros and one big (!) conMarch 23, 2015JamesAlbany,NYAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2i have really enjoyed corbin bernsen's last four faith based films (rust, beyond the heavens, 25 hill and three day test). he has a unique style and brings much excellence to his art. this film has many of his earmarks: unique humor and life insight. however, i believe he has made one big mistake in this particular outing. he is commenting on relationship between a man and a woman from a point of view that borrows more from western culture than the plumb line of all Christ centered faith, the eternal Word of God, the Bible.
the film, as is witnessed by former reviews will, no doubt, be very popular in opinion and will boister the website it is connected to. but having been around Bible centered churches for over 25 years, i would have to say one of the most damaging practices among these fellowships of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ is what may be termed 'missionary dating'. that is to say, a committed believer trying to convince a non believer of faith in Christ. or, as in this story line, a non believer entering in to a church under false pretenses to find a 'good person' after all the disappointments among nonbelievers who have little or no moral plumb line. very dangerous concept.
what is not portrayed here is what probably happens to the two main characters when they realize they are what God the Holy Spirit calls 'unequally yoked' for life. think of an ox and a pony under the same yoke trying to plow a field. getting the picture? the main female character uses the Name of the Lord Jesus frivolously throughout the film, underlining the difference between she and the lead male role. the mother in the story is seen as kind of an overbearing 'bad guy' when in reality she has great spiritual discernment. yes, the main female character does end up seeking faith, but the man is way beyond her in spiritual development.
the film itself, aside from the above mentioned problem, is excellently produced, directed and acted. veteran actors like david keith, morgan fairchild and corbin bernsen are excellent in their roles. this may actually further the mixed message of the film. there is no ungodly sexuality or violence. there is some mildly rude humor and bad language implied but not spoken. the main male character makes the heavy metal symbol for satan worship ( forefinger and pinky ) referring to his former desire to be a secular musician. the lead female and her co worker both lie to their boss to cover up for her missing work during an important work assignment, then the co worker tells her she is a Christian but keeps it low key. apparently so low key that no one knows she is a believer and lying is ok. 'if accused of being a Christian would there be enough evidence to convict you?' is a very good plumb line for faith.
all in all, i can't recommend this one and share the concerns of 'butterfly mom', who gave it four stars. i believe it is more of a concern than she, as stated above, and wish all who desire to make good choices for their own and family's viewing all the best and am hopeful that they will use the Plumbline of the Word of God as their source for discernment.
also, let's continue to encourage film makers like corbin bernsen (despite this one negative review), veteran actors who do family oriented projects, Christian book and Christian Mingle in their efforts. they have much to offer the Bible believing community and i pray for them all. : )
Deb PiccurelliGloucester Township, New JerseyAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Cute and Funny!February 23, 2015Deb PiccurelliGloucester Township, New JerseyAge: 45-54Gender: femaleI watched this movie with my niece (she is grown). We both totally enjoyed it! We laughed a lot. I was glad to see many well-known actors in it. There are many ways people find themselves drawn to Christ, and one of them is through their interest in someone of the opposite gender, whether or not they end up with that person.
ButterflyMom4 Stars Out Of 5interesting perspective!February 22, 2015ButterflyMomQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I loved some things in this movie and was frustrated about others. All movies come about because of someone's vision of truth and the desire to share that truth or to tell a story they feel is worthy of the telling. Dating is not something I see as a wise choice for a believer. I believe Jesus brings people together to learn truth about themselves, be tested about what love really is and glorify God. The two people here are attracted to each other, see each other as momentarily acceptable then as always problems and reality spring up. Did they both learn about real Godly Love and what that is? I was not sure. Did they grow in their spiritual walk away from judging people outwardly? Maybe! All in all I enjoyed seeing Corbin Benson's perspective. His style is unique. There were moments that were supposed to be funny and I found them cute at best! The parts about Church going folk and their striving to "play the game" were uncomfortable. I hoped for sincerity and was not always sure I saw that. Sure a lie was perpetuated but forgiveness and compassion and understanding are always a part of being a TRUE believer and follower of Christ is it not?
The thing I am most thankful I purchased this movie for, is that it did give me an opportunity to share and maybe even re-examine my own dating history with my 17 year old daughter. It opened a door for me to share what I learned and the folly I saw in this very real portrayal. Be yourself, no matter what! Be truthful! Do not follow the pressure of well meaning friends. To enter into any relationship under false pretenses is not funny, it is foolish and many get hurt. Church people are real! They need you to be sincere and not mock their faith.
I love Lacy Charbet! She is interesting to watch play a character. I recommend any one purchasing or watching this movie to keep an open mind, learn something and be nicer to people who struggle with just living the life Jesus wants you to live; single or not!
