Dove Review:
You know that Dick Wallrath (played very convincingly by Jon Gries) has a drinking problem when he comes home drunk and soon learns that one of his kids put Kool-Aid in his bourbon bottle. He goes off like lightning and thunder on his wife and kids. He is an abusive husband and father, and during the first half of the film we see him constantly drinking, smoking, getting into a fight, and losing his temper. Later on, when his wife has left him and the kids become teens and want nothing to do with him he realizes that what his mother told him is true. He needs God in his life. Dick begins attending AA meetings and soon develops a faith in God and he even prays the Serenity Prayer. He also lands a job as a salesman for Champion Windows and finds he has the talent to run his own company. The film is inspiring, showing Dick slowly begin to reconnect with his children and even finding happiness in the romance department, but the content is graphic and strong including many utterances of strong language, and a few sexual innuendos, not to mention a lot of drinking and smoking scenes. The violence level hits a three in our content rating as well. For these reasons, we cannot award the movie our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal but due to its strong faith message, we believe it qualifies for our Faith-Based Seal, which is specifically for movies with a faith message that contain strong and realistic content. It’s also interesting to note that this film is based on a true story.
