A baseball player and his son are lost in America and find themselves in Amish country. Their truck has broken down, so three Amish ladies hire him to do work around the house. This sparks the interest of the local policewoman, questioning who they are. Based off the book by Serena B. Miller. Starring Tom Everett Scott, Sarah Lancaster, and Kelly McGillis.
Over all, this film is a cute and fun watch. It’s one of those films that’s a good watch on a Sunday afternoon. Even though the film is a fun watch, it’s definitely not an Oscar winner. First, I have to say that I struggled with the reality of the relations between Amish and Non Amish people. I don’t think Amish people would be that inclusive with outsiders. Second, I struggled with the realism of how Joe (the baseball player) could fall for someone so quickly after the loss of his wife. The acting is what makes this film believable, and the chemistry between Scott and Lancaster is what makes it work. I also appreciated the message that this film gave, to help those less fortunate than you. This film is worth a watch.
