Welcome To Paradise

1 h 55 min2007X-RayPG
Preacher Debbie Laramie uproots her home in Dallas when she's transferred to a small church in the sleepy town of Paradise, Texas. Debbie and her son brave a bumpy reception from a community in need of a guide back to God. Her unique approach creates a divide until a catastrophic chain of events leaves them without a building at all. A reminder of how love and acceptance show our faith.

Good faith movie
Verified purchase
Crystal Bernard is a charming person as well as a bit unorthodox. There were themes in this picture that could have been developed - the antagonist wanted to be the pastor but his position keeps changing - her son is talented as a basketball player but doesn't fit the flow of the script. His coach has an interest with Crystal but yet not a like you or even a kiss. It is a wholesome script and an example of faith and community spirit. It is nice to see a woman pastor for a change.

Welcome to Paradise, a Good Movie to Relax By
Verified purchase
I enjoyed Welcome to Paradise. The entire cast had personality plus and the story line was enjoyable. It wasn't entirely predictable. For instance, I thought the story was going in one direction when it took a surprise turn in a different direction. I won't give it away, but it was a great surprise! I look forward to watching it again. It's believable and a good movie to relax by.

Good Try, BUT . . .
Verified purchase
This would have been a wonderful movie except for two things. The timing was so, so off. The big gaps between sentences and conversations remind one of an elementary school production where students forget their lines and instead give a big gap-toothed grin to fill in the silences. The minister was not a good speaker. She was the one who started the big silences between sentences and didn't repent through the entire film. However, the story was there and could have been presented very much better. Keep trying to tighten up the editing and the director will finally have a good product!

You never know...

With "faith" based or Christian movies, sometimes they are not well made or acted, and sometimes they don't ease people into the story of faith gracefully or artfully. This movie is in the winner category for speaking to the beauty of faith and love in a most endearing way. I thought all of the actors were great.

Nice little story.
Verified purchase
Nice story about faith and perseverance in the face of adversity and change. The movie also has a good message about serving God by loving and serving those around you.

Just an aside - there were a lot of Alison Krauss songs throughout the movie, yet none were credited at the end. What's up with that?

Production is a little odd, but movie is great!
Verified purchase
The sound was a little off and there were a lot of weird pauses, but this movie is worth watching. The story is good and shows you that no matter where we are, we matter, and we can be forgiven and redeemed.

Editing could have been better but the message was perfectly clear.

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
