CFDb Review:

Finding Normal a Great Christian film with a Hallmark feel to it.  Check out the CFDb Movie Review.

As she drives cross-country to her new life she hits a tractor in Normal, North Carolina and her BMW is wrecked. Dr. Leland is found guilty of speeding and ordered to do community service – as a doctor – in Normal, population 332.

    I absolutely loved this movie! I also really liked the band that played at the “Founders Day” dance, particularly the slow song they played while they danced. Since the movie isn’t listed at IMDB yet, I couldn’t locate any info but would really love to download that song if I could find out what it was and/or who the band was. I also loved each character, especially the old Doc, what a wonderful addition to the film. And it goes without saying that I’ve admired Candace for so long now and how she’s conducted her life. Anyway, if I could change one thing about the film, it would be that Dr. Lisa could have made her decision to stay in Normal a little earlier in the film…I just feel it got a little tedious seeing her being so unkind & self centered for so long until the very last few minutes of the film. Other than that, I totally loved everything about it and especially the Christian message! I didn’t have to brace myself for nudity or bad language. Thank you! More, more, more movies like this one please! P.S. Btw, until today I didn’t know that the “Gospel Music Network” had movies…thought they just did music! I do love movies so I’ll be sure to check them out in the future!

    How can I purchase this film? Is it possible to purchase the DVD without becoming a member?

  6. Annelie says

    It’s not available yet to purchase – you don’t have to become a member for purchasing. We don’t sell the films, we just lead you to a place that does. In this case, it may be another couple of months before it comes out on DVD.

    I’m not sure you have to check with the GMC – Now Uplifting Entertainment Schedule page:
    http://www.uptv.com/schedule

    I didn’t notice it scheduled for the next couple of weeks though.

    Well yay! I FINALLY after much searching discovered the name of the band that does the music at the Founders Day dance in Finding Normal. It’s Jason Martin & the Corner Pocket (along with the girl singer in it named Hanna Hart). Until the DVD comes out, the only version of the song I can find is on YouTube so here’s what you do if you want to hear it.

    Go to YouTube and enter this: Jason Martin Something Like You

    Then of all the choices that come up, choose this one: Something Like You at Practice

    It’s definitely the song from the movie and I enjoyed it a lot…well, except for the last few seconds of it where Jason uses the F word. (sigh) Too bad…but until I can get the hopefully great version on the DVD, I’m downloading this version and then trimming out the first minute or two where he’s kidding with the band, and of course the last few seconds too where he says the foul word and just get the song part. Anyway, other than him using the junky word at the end, the song was fabulous. And I’m happy now because…mystery solved! Love it! :) P.S. It’s just kind of amazing that it took so long to come up with it. I even asked the question on Finding Normal’s Facebook page and nothing. Anyway…

    Jenny, I was IN the movie (Rita Caffey, the lady who needed a prayer before having her blood pressure taken). I need to get a copy of my scene for my demo reel and wondered if you know if I’m still in it! You know what they say about landing on the editing room floor!

    Thanks
    Pam

    Actually I think I should have asked that question of Annelie, not Jenny!

    Just talked to Pure Flix, thanks for the contact. Turns out that GMC made some sort of special arrangement to air the show last month, and I believe it’s some months away, maybe even next year, before it’s released to DVD.

    I’ve lived in Raleigh North Carolina all my life and traveled all over my home state and in all the movies I’ve seen supposedly set in North Carolina make us sound deeply southern and backwoods and we are not the way they portray us to be. Other than that it’s a lovely heart warming movie.

    To Jenny: her heart was warming up long before that. What did she do before she left? Sweet movie I was only fortunate enough to see on UP TV recently.
