Editorial Reviews

Villagers Paul and Davie Nance would be perfectly happy, except for four consecutive miscarriages. She transfers her nursing side to Baptist parish volunteer work. Thus she cares for grumpy, sickly, infidel old neighbor, Olin Arrendal, better than the registered nurse. Grateful, he makes her meet his cheeky, stray-Methodist grandson Clay, who moved in to get to know his grandfather. Davie soon finds Clay's knavish charm irresistible, he's amused she 'stalks' him. Then things turn.This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

3.0 out of 5 stars It has its moments April 8, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
*Contains spoilers.*

I'm with the other poster who said she only watched this due to SPF. It delivered in that regard. His acting was well-done as always, and for those who care, he's shirtless in a couple of scenes.

I think Ted Manson stole the show though as the grandfather. The scene where he's trying to get the preacher to go away is pure gold. Actually, I think it's the best scene in the whole film.

The story-line itself is...just okay...I felt like there was too much going on for one movie, and a lot of the characters don't get properly explored so that I can care about the things I'm supposed to care about. We get hints about different characters and who they are, but we only get hints until something major happens. The sister is a somewhat stereotypical rebel with her single streak of blue hair. Her boyfriend rides a motorcycle and doesn't go to church, so he must be bad news. Oh, it turns out he is. The "certified asswiper" Danielle is (again stereotypical) white trash struggling to take care of her baby and hold down a job. However, since she seems to care about said job so little, it's hard to feel sorry for her. Heck, she's even willing to give away her baby just so she can take her ex (Mr. Motorcycle) back, because he's not ready for children.

Then, there's the almost glacial pace the movie moves at for about the first 45 minutes. Scene transitions could have been done so much better and there are places begging for background music/noise. In addition, Emily Carpenter's acting wavers between okay and atrocious. It seems like she wrote/produced the movie and cast herself as the lead. Bad move.

Even with all of that, the biggest problem in this movie for me was that there wasn't a clear point.

5.0 out of 5 stars raw humanity at the core July 8, 2008
By KCM
Format:DVD
Crystal River is absolutely incredible.. it is subtly astounding-- one of the most genuine and beautiful reflections of raw, rugged humanity I've ever seen..

The clashes between the accepted and unaccepted, the brutal realities of heartbreak, tragedy and matters we cannot control, and the tender connections between human souls all struggling to find their place are so simply and brilliantly portrayed in this piece.. and the denominational rivalry is just hilarious.

A real and relevant story, lovable characters, and the universal idea that we are all still searching-- it is a quiet film, yes, but one that should not be bypassed.

While the movie does show the struggles of life, it is not faith based at all. The movie mocks religion, Baptist specifically. Spoiler alert..... The entire movie in a nutshell, Baptist church that only wants to baptize you, not tell you how to be saved, biker boy friend with choir girl, married woman who miscarries several times, hangs out with new younger man, leaves husband and ends up along with the choir girls baby because the biker doesn't want kids.

bad waste of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best M/F friendship movie September 15, 2009
By Running
Format:DVD
This is by far my favorite romance movie. Well...actually, it isn't a romance movie, but more like a friendship movie. If you love movies such as Casablanca, the Notebook, A Walk to Remember, Ghost, etc., then this movie may be too slow for you. It's not your typical romance but a very romantic "friendship" movie. Again, this is my favorite "romance" movie and very suitable for people who wants the male/female relationships without commitment in life.
