My Mother's Future Husband 2014

I've never actually watched UpTV, but I was of the belief that they are a Christian network. While there was nothing offensive in this movie, there was nothing explicitly Christian either. Other than vague references to God and heaven, about the only reference to the Way was a Christian fish on the back of the main character's car. It was still cute and rather family-friendly, but it wasn't quite what I was expecting. The best part was the ending when--spoiler alert!--the geeky guy gets the pretty girl.

Content Concerns: Other than the expected emotional intensity, the only negative aspect was the wardrobe of some of the women, particularly Headley and her mother, who often wore low-cut tops and tiny shorts. It's a shame that such a sweet family movie couldn't have also had a dedication to modesty.

Score: 3/5
