The Amish don't dance
Verified purchase
The Amish don't dance. It is sinful. Nor do they play banjos, well known as the devil's instrument. And if they did, they certainly would not play Scruggs style three finger picking. Nor would they have Scruggs tuners in their instruments. This movie proves once again that Hollywood writers are morons who are too lazy to do their research. Aside from the factual inaccuracies the movie was okay. If the errors were not present I would give it four stars.

Fun, modern interpretation of an ancient fable.
Verified purchase
Story line: Contemporary relationship issues with all the accoutrements of technology interference and temptations of corruption that quickly dissolve with the necessary acquaintance and friendship of hard-working, pious, agricultural people. Conclusion sees both cultures remain steadfastly in place, with one shunning the other at the story climax. But each accidentally stumbles upon a deeper understanding of life when opening their hearts to acknowledge others under a capacity of tolerance. Kirstie Alley and Tim Allen partnered well to interpret this modern, expansive account based on the ancient Aesop's fable The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing.

Love when she smacks him when she needs a cigarette and he yelps!! My family quotes this movie all the time!
"Grandma, I'm gonna need just a little bit of mustard."
"No one make a fool out of me!!! " "Too late!" "What's that?" "Said I'll be working late!"

Going back to our base
Verified purchase
Five stars naturally. Watch this movie when your depressed and you'll feel better, I should know. We all have our problems and getting back to our base is the solution (most of the time). The movie is pretty clean except for the F... word once but other than that, very clean.

Clever story line. It seemed to me (though I am "English") that is was respectful of the Amish community and their beliefs. Funny yet poignant and a very hopeful story with positive and uplifting values.

One of my all-time favorite movies. I thoroughly enjoy the character change that takes place where the rich couple sequester themselves from the empty life and really discover what's important; selflessness and love. :)
