Directed by Corbin Bernsen who also wrote and starred in Christian Mingle along with Lacey Chabert, Jonathan Patrick Moore, Stephen Tobolowsky, David Keith, Morgan Fairchild, John O’Hurley, and Saidah Arrika Ekulona.
Gwyneth Hayden is a busy marketing executive who hates the men she has been going dates with. They all seem frivolous and phony. After seeing an ad for christianmingle.com, despite the warnings from her friends, she signs up despite not being a Christian.
After meeting her first match, the kind and generous Paul Wood, she decides to date him. Her learning more about his faith by general research causing some awkward moments with his friends and his parents. As she spends time with him, she starts to discover that his authenticity comes from his faith and it begins to change her as well.
The critics have called this film “cringe worthy.” Critics are annoying sometimes. The fact is, this Christian drama did have the feel of a television movie, but it was far from cringe worthy. I will admit it lacked some character development and had a little bit of cheesy dialogue, but outside of that, it was a good movie that the whole family can enjoy.
