A recently paroled ex-con who has trouble adjusting to the wacky normalcy of life outside of prison. He has spent the last three years behind bars after getting caught committing a crime and taking the rap for his much more dangerous pal.
After a single, career-minded woman is left on her own to give birth to the child of a married man, she finds a new romantic chance in a cab driver. Meanwhile, the point-of-view of the newborn boy is narrated through voice-over.
The incredibly rich, but miserable New York couple, Brad and Caroline Sexton, got framed by their accountant, and fled from the IRS to the one place where no one would look for them: Amish country. Now they've got to do their best to blend in, and learn how to love all over again. Written by
After Brad steals the taxi, Caroline gets into the back seat. He looks into the mirror and say's "This keeps getting better and better." While he is arguing with Caroline, the reflection of two police cars with their over head lights on can be seen in the mirror behind them, even though the chase scene doesn't start for a few more scenes.

Amish reminder of all we needed to know we learned as a child
granted this is not high brow sophisticated comedy, but it was actually
a really fun movie! Kirstie Alley was not her usual annoying self, and
it was enjoyable to watch her character change due to the Amish
influence. Tim Allen was more relaxed and less of a ham, so his
character was fun to watch. the Newman mailman guy from the Seinfeld
show always cracks me up. the Amish child was cute too.
the Amish were not disrespected, and this movie made me want to learn
more about the Amish. just a quick and simple Google search for Amish
brought up several good sites. perhaps this is the real success of this
movie - that viewers hear the message of simplicity and virtue in
living one's life, then take the next step to learn more about the
Amish culture and beliefs, and finally take to heart these life lessons
we learned as a child.
