Editorial Reviews

Cain stars as Randy Simpkins, a husband and father torn between the demands of his job and commitment to his family. Asked by his wife Christal to watch their two-year-old son Joe for a few minutes, Randy is distracted by work and Joe disappears. Racked by guilt, Randy joins Christal in a desperate search for their missing son alongside hundreds of others from their church and community. Randy and Christal’s strained marriage must now weather the ultimate test - the potential loss of a child. The Way Home is the story of Randy's powerful spiritual journey back to love, faith and a Godly understanding of what must always take first priority in a man's life - his family.

Customer Reviews

The rawness of emotion was very gripping.
Trisha Turner
Faith in GOD, prayers, and the love and support of many many people show the boys father that he has been putting work before his family and God.
Kim B.
I know I've told you a lot about the movie, but it is so good it just needed to be told.

Upon receiving this film, I instantly recognized Dean Cain from both his role as Clark on the t.v. show Louis and Clark and from the movie where he plays Scott Peterson. Our family does movie night once a week and we thought this family film would be a good one to view for that week.

Immediately into the film, the viewers are taken into the lives of a family filled with problems. The husband (Dean Cain) overworks and has a hard time separating his work life from his home life. The wife is annoyed that she never has his full attention. They are packing to leave for a vacation and the husband, Dean Cain, is loading the car while watching their son. He steps in to check his work emails.

Within minutes, his two year old son decides to wonder off and before the couple knows it, their son has gone missing. Panic sets in for audience members as they know this is one of the worst fears: having a child gone missing. Has he been murdered? Did he drown in a nearby pond? Did someone kidnap him?

Fortunately for you, I will not spoil it. But I will say that when you view this film, be sure you have lots of tissues available. This one is a real tearjerker. Our family bonded while watching this film and our kids enjoyed it very much as well. This is a great, clean family film that I am happy to promote! I am definitely going to stock up on this one for Christmas presents!

A missing child. A family in crisis. A faith tested. In their darkest hour, God gives hope.

Dean Cain stars as Randy Simpkins, a husband and father torn between the demands of his job and family. Asked by his wife to watch their two-year-old son, Joe, for a few minutes, he becomes distracted by work. When he returns, Joe is gone. He and his wife search desperately for their missing son through the vast countryside. But as their fear grows, the community responds - hundreds of supporters uniting behind the family in a powerful spiritual journey that will test the couple's love and faith, and forever change a community.

This story really hits home for those of us that struggle with priorities. I was very convicted of how often I glance at the email on my iPhone when I should really be playing with my daughter. I was also reminded of the power of true Christian community. In this movie, the entire community showed up to be the body of Christ to this family in a crisis situation. I appreciated the fact that the Christian values came through strong without being overly cheesy.

I absolutely love this movie. My girls watched it with me and enjoyed it just as much as I did. It has the Dove Family Approved seal. As a parent the story hits close to home and any person with a tender heart will with this family. I recommend having a box of kleenex on hand because you will cry. This movie gives you hope and shows you that their are people that care. That God is always there in everything we go through. If you get the opportunity to see this movie please do. It's a story that should be remembered when life gets busy and the little things in life get in the way of what is most important to you. There are not enough good things that I can say about it.

The Way Home, starring Dean Cain, is a movie based on a true story. Randy Simpkins is a hard working dad trying to provide for his family, though his wife, Christal, feels he is too focused with his work and doesn't spend enough quality time with his family. While preparing for a family vacation, their two-year-old son, Joe, goes missing. The movie is about the whole community coming together to help find Joe.

I thought this was an excellent movie. It is definitely a tear jerker for the women, but it is still an excellent movie for men as well. I love how the community almost forms one family when they're searching for Joe and the love within the Christian community is clearly shown as they pray for the Simpkins family and trust God while the search is going on.

If you get this DVD, I also recommend watching the extras where the cast interacts with the real Simpkins family and they talk about the actual event that happened 7-9 years ago. If you're looking for a good, Christian movie to watch, I recommend this movie.

This movie starring Dean Cain is based on a true story. Its about a little boy who disappears near his families secluded home surrounded by forest. Randy, played by Dean Cain, is a father obsessed with work. His wife asks him to keep an eye on two year old Joe so she can get the bags for a much needed family vacation. When she comes out again Joe is missing. The community and surrounding counties come to search for the child.
This movie touched me in so many ways. I laughed, I cried. I would recommend this movie to anyone but be warned dont watch this with out kleenex handy. It truly is an inspirational movie. This was well written and well filmed. And be sure to watch the epilogue while the credits are playing.
