Customer Reviews

Our family loved this movie!
goober
If you enjoy romance, family, and respect for our soldiers and not to mention a little religion/spirituality being a part of a real movie----this is a good one to get!
J. Parker
The soldier had no family so he was willing to spend time with this little boy and help him, while all the time he was falling in love with the boy's mother.

Loughlin (Dana) plays a young professional and single parent who went through a divorce and has custody of a 10 yr old son (Jared). Starting their new life they move 1600 miles from the only home Jared has ever known.
Dana and Jared move in with Dana's mother played by Stephanie Powers. It was great seeing Stephanie Powers acting and offering light but powerful spiritual suggestions and at times great motherly and grandmotherly advice.
Dana is teaching her 10 yr old son some important life lessons that on occasion are spiritual. I love the way she teaches him to look for and be thankful for things they have. Spirituality is not over-done but instead very beautifully planted!
Dana starts a new job, Jared starts a new school and together they start a new life. Jared's biological father moves far a way and makes empty promises to spend time with him.
Randomly chosen Jared's teacher assigns the students to write a letter to soldiers. Jared writes to Sergeant Vince Carerra (played by Johnny Messner). Vince a likeable but lonely soldier soon reaches out to 10 yr old Jared first through writing and then in person to offer some suggestions about playing baseball. Vince soon becomes a positive male role model for Jared. Jared begins to like baseball with the help of coaching from Vince. It helps Jared develop friends.
It doesn't take Jared long to "fakes an illness" to set up time for his mother Dana and mentor Vince to spend time alone.
Sergeant Carerra is relationship shy --as is Dana. Vince, Dana and Jared spend time together and begin a unique bond. For Dana and Vince loving one another becomes natural.

The real test comes when Sergeant Carerra is to be deployed unexpectedly and everything comes to a halt within 10 days.

L LOVE THIS FILM! It's sweet and endearing. The connection between the young boy and the soldier seemed was so heartwarming, and the drama of the absentee father brings great balance to this movie. I absolutely loved the chemistry between the boy's mother and the soldier. The centeral theme--love can overcome any obstacles in life--is a powerful one, and I think the element of faith just reinforces the central theme quite nicely. I have to agree with one of the previous reviewer's comments--I'd like to see a sequel to this movie!

The story has been well reviewed already. I want to add that the element of faith in this movie is what makes it worthwhile to me. The soldier and the single mom have each been hurt by someone they loved and now, through faith that God has a plan for them, they learn to trust their feelings to another person again. The young boy has also found a man he can look up to and depend on, after being disappointed in the lack of caring shown by his own father. Stephanie Powers plays a woman who has experienced pain in her own past, and though they don't dwell on her situation long, the realization that her mother has been through it all before and still has faith helps Dana be strong.

It may be a predictable outcome, but there is substance to the message that makes it more than just another romance.

It was a very well done love story that shows how you can recover after a divorce and learn to love again. It also shows the fears and frustrations many of our soldiers deal with being away from home for extended periods.

A Soldier Love Story is an awesome movie. I have watched it over ad over on the Hallmark Channel. Dana and Vince are a great couple together and Jared just adds that magic touch. Vince and Jared are great pen pals and great friends. The bond between them is real. They show great compassion in a true friendship. I hope that a sequeal is in the works.

When I read about this film I said this will be a wonderful love story especally for a lonely Sergent Vince Carerra who is in Bosnia on an army mission. Then one day a litte boy named Jared was to do an assignment which was giving by his teacher. Jared is going throug a tough time by moving away with his mother Dana back to his grandmothers house and fitting into his new school. When Jared got his assignment to write to Sergent Carerra he was telling him about his life and his liking for baseball. When Sergent Carerra came home for awhile he embarked a likness for Jared teaching to be a catcher for the baseball team. As time goes on her embarks a love afair with Dana who is recently divorced. But their love is shortened because Vince has been assigned on another mission and had only 10days before he is deployed. He and Dana parted in their own ways but then they both discovered their true love for one another. When Vince was about to be deployed he went to say his goodbyes to Jared & Dana. He and Dana knew they never wanted to part dispite with Vince been deployed they both know where their hearts lie.

As for Jared he became a catcher for the baseball team thanks to Vince. This is the most loving and romantic story I have ever seen.

This is a great movie...Lori Loughlin plays this part so easily, it seems like she was playing herself as in real life. If that is in fact true, she would be the perfect woman.I hope the sequel is in the works,and with all the original actors. I would buy it as soon as possible.
