MY REVIEW-As the film starts off, we get to meet slick pretty boy Rob Decker. He is used to having things his way, getting what he wants and looking great. And believe me, the actor really pulls this off well. I soo wanted to slap him:) And I think his secretary stood up to him quite well. I personally loved her! Rob is trying to get another sports star signed on and when his employee won't go do it, his secretary challenges him to go out in the big world and get the kid to sign. So off he goes to end up in a little country town when his car breaks down. You will be laughing when you meet Fes and Mac. They are quite the pair! He wanders downtown and stumbles upon the church festival where he meets Daisy, the quiet and pretty young woman who can do just about everything. He is instantly taken with her but I enjoyed her attitude with him. She doesn't fall all over him and his city airs but stands up to him. Gotta love her!
There is a lot more to the film but I don't want to give things away if you haven't seen the movie yet. Lets just say there is some good ball playing along with excellent teaching. There were many good thoughts brought across in here and it all seems natural. Daisy is a strong Christian who knows what she wants and will be there for almost everyone. I also loved her brother, Scooter. The acting was well done and does not seem like some of the other Christian films out there. I am sure you know the ones I mean that look like home movies. This one is not like that at all. Very excellent acting! There is some preaching done on here so please be forewarned. It is a christian film that isn't ashamed to put Christ in there. I also liked how it is interesting enough that the kids enjoyed it. The whole family watched it which means varying ages and we all liked it. Not a fast paced thriller by any means but very good film!
