A Parent's Nightmare
Last night, I watched the movie The Way Home, starring Dean Cain. I still think of him as Superman. *swoon*Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Based on a true story, it tells the story of Randy and Christal Simpkins. As they are getting ready to leave for vacation, Christal confronts her husband about spending more time with work than with his family. Supposed to keep an eye on their two year-old, Joe, Randy goes inside the house for just a minute to check his work emails. When the couple goes back outside, Joe is nowhere to be found.
As their search continues and Joe still cannot be found, hundreds of people from the community show up to help search. The movie tells their story of their faith and leads Randy to see what is really important.
I was a little uncomfortable watching this movie. Because it's one of my worst nightmares to have my children disappear.
However, it was inspiring to see the community all come together and pray for their child to be found.
On a night when there wasn't anything on tv, it filled the time. But, it is not a dvd that I will bring out again and again.
I received this dvd for free from the BookSneeze bloggers program.

I usually review books for Thomas Nelson, but this time they gave me a DVD to review. The Way Home starring Dean Cain, is the story of a family in crisis. When Randy Simpkin's son, Joe, disappears from his driveway right before a vacation, the family fears the worst. As the whole town bands together to search for the lost 3 year old, help comes from unexpected sources, and more than one person learns a valuable lesson about family. The whole ordeal not only tests Randy's marriage, but it makes him realize the most important things in life: his faith and family.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I've seen very few Christian movies that I would consider "good". The themes are always sound and the stories are heartwarming, but there are usually a considerable amount of sappy, cliched scenes that don't seem to match up with reality. This movie was not an exception. The moral of the story was great, and it was a wholesome family film that reminds you of the important things in life, but it won't be winning any academy awards anytime soon. Cain is average in this film as is the rest of the cast. If you are looking for a short feel good film, you might pick up this one, but don't expect anything profound.
