Allyson: I'm a failure. I have failed again. That's all I do. I had a plan. I was gonna help myself and help my friends unplug and have fun, and then Bridget happened, so then I thought I could fix that, too, and instead... I can't. I can't get in front of it.

User Reviews

A good wholesome movie
6 September 2014 | by rconnelliiSee all my reviews

It was really refreshing to have a movie that wasn't all SEXED up or have questionable material like most movies do these day. I love the spiritual message that was portrayed.

Not sure what is with all the negative reviews here. This was a GREAT start...

I loved all the characters. I thought the plot was good and there was a lot of funny scenes including a car chase.

However the movie did seem to fizzle a little bit once everyone was arrested. I loved the scene with Trace Atkins and the main character who realizes that she doesn't need to do it all.

Overall... I'd love to see a sequel with Dad's Fishing Day Out or Camping day out... and improve on this franchise...
