So for one of our recent movie date nights at home, dh and I watched this movie, The Wedding Chapel. I found it on DVD at our local public library. I give it 3 1/2 out of five stars. It was fun to watch but wasn’t super amazing or meaningful. Here’s the synopsis from YouTube:
Synopsis: Uninspired and newly single painter Sara is down on her luck and wants nothing more than to get away from her problems. When she decides to take a trip to visit her mom, she becomes involved in the efforts to save a local church which is in danger of being closed down. Determined to help preserve the historic building, Sara embarks on a mission that not only gives her a new outlook on life, but enables her mother to rekindle a long lost love from her past…a story about love, forgiveness and embracing new beginnings.
It was fun to see Shelly Long, who plays the mother of the main character, act out the character of an older woman. She has aged somewhat, putting on pounds and wrinkles, but is still delightful. The movie was clean and wholesome. It is also Christian-based. Shelly’s character wears a cross necklace in most of the scenes. It was great to see the power of community come together to save an old chapel from being demolished. There were some sparks between the main character and the leading man, so that was fun to watch too. So if you are ever in the mood for a light romantic comedy, this might fit the bill for you.
