Mark Van Der Poole, his wife, and two teenagers all understand what being “connected” is all about: Twitter, Facebook, Cell Phones, i Pads, GPS – their frantic lives are bound to gadgets too numerous to count! This noisy backdrop turns suddenly into awkward silence when a mysterious glitch brings the entire communications grid to a sudden halt! Sudden withdrawal from a gadget-driven addictions force the Van Der Poole family against their will, to face the best – and worst – in each other as they explore old fashioned fun, family, and faith. In the process, they rediscover the real connectedness they hadn’t even realized they had lost.
Has your life become so full of gadgets you have no time for your own family? This is the true message of this film.
Remember this? This is the way we USED to unplug from the world – taking the phone off the hook. A lot of you actually remember doing this! The sad part of all the gadgets we use on a daily basis is that it not only takes us away from our families but from God as well. It’s hard to hear Him speak to us unless we are quiet and spending time in His Word. This is crucial and the devil has really distracted us by gadgets.
This film is a little silly at times and I wish they didn’t make the true Christian look bad in the beginning. They did make up for that later on in the film. This film has its moments that I really enjoyed and Romans 8:28 is brought out as well without actually quoting the verse. Romans 8:28 – And we know that all things work together for good, to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
