‘Old Fashioned’ ~ CFDb Movie Review
Chivalry make a comeback.
Former frat boy Clay Walsh has given up his reckless lifestyle and settled down to run an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town. Determined to put his partying ways behind him, Clay has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance. But when Amber Hewson, a free-spirited woman with a gypsy soul, rents the apartment above his shop, Clay cannot resist being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life.
Not your typical romance film, until the very end when romance abounds! Here were the highlights:
- Enjoyed the Cinderella talk on the radio. Do we expect a prince charming, a perfect man to come and sweep us off our feet, but then totally forget that we aren’t perfect either? (Spoken by an imperfect woman). There is a FB photo that says “A perfect marriage is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other.”
- Some humor throughout the film.
- Loved the shoe box idea.
- Liked what Amber said when she was first given the DVD.
Elizabeth Ann Roberts, who played Amber in this movie was fabulous! I would love to see her in more faith based films. Such a natural and had a fabulous personality in this film.
Overall, the message in this film was a little confusing. This movie showed Clay as such a strict Christian. Amber wasn’t a Christian to begin with. The Bible is clear that we are not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers. Does a Christian have any right to date a non-believer for any reason? The Bible says clearly, “No”. So although the main character did show much respect to Amber, it really wasn’t right for him to date her to begin with.
