The acting is pretty good all around, I think. Some parts are cheesy and the story isn't exactly realistic, but it was a good movie to watch. All in all, I'm glad that I spent the $13 on it. I'll watch it again.
The next morning, Dennis is having breakfast in a local diner whilst Brian plays outside and gets in a accident, requiring hospitalization. The pair are introduced to the town doctor, Sophie (Alison Eastwood), and Dennis is immediately attracted to her. At the same time, Dennis is puzzled that the police seem bent on getting him and Brian to leave the town. By now, viewers already know that the town harbors a spring that has healing powers and staves off aging. The question is: Will the budding romance between Dennis and Sophie go anywhere, and if so, what will Dennis and Brian decide to do after discovering the town's secret? There is more to the town than just being eternally young, for there is a price to be paid.
This story reminded me of Shirley Jackson's short story "The Lottery", and I plan to watch the TV adaptation of the story. "The Spring" is quite engaging, it did keep my interest, but the plot was rather predictable, though I felt the actors did a decent job in their respective roles, especially those in the lead roles. I would rent it though.
So as not to give away the plot's "secrets," suffice to say that Kyle finds out being young is not always being wise. Poor Kyle seems totally bored with his role and it's up to Alison Eastwood as the town doctor and George Eads as the local mechanic to bring some sort of life into this thinly structured plot. It's pleasantly gore free, and deaths are staged without blood and guts. It ends up being a less emphatic version of Shirley Jackson's classic short story, "The Lottery." But overall, not a bad movie, just nothing special.
Take my advice and get this one if you love the feel of Lifetime movies with a supernatural twist.

Great movie, it took me a couple of years to remember the name of this movie. It's a great movie it is kind of like Tuck Everlasting meets the Twilight Zone.Published 17 months ago by Misty
This was a gift to a friend, and I'm sure it was enjoyed, but I didn't watch it myself, so I don't know anything about the storyline. Read morePublished on May 31, 2013 by Wayne D. Kyle
There's no need to buy this one for under a dollar. Check garage sales in your area. Just as many made-for-tv movies, NBC took a nice premise into a 93 minute slow paced, ok plot,... Read morePublished on October 24, 2005 by Michael Heusdens
The first time I saw this movie was on Lifetime TV and I almost changed the channel, but something about the description of the movie caught my eye. Read morePublished on September 3, 2002 by Cortney
