Storyline

Following both the death of her father-in-law and a divorce, Jesse, a New Yorker, returns to a small town to live with her now widowed mother-in-law. Jesse struggles to fit in with the local townsfolk who don't welcome her with open arms to say the least. Jesse becomes acquainted with the local pastor, her widowed brother-in-law, falling in love with him, much to the dismay of the community. Things get even more complicated when her ex-husband comes calling, suspiciously trying to win her back. Between her love life and entangled in-laws, Jesse is tested as she seeks the answer to where she truly belongs.

Trivia

In the close-up of the Bible on the desk it is shown as the "New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures" (printed 1950, revised 2013). This is a modern language authoritative Bible translation produced by the Jehovah's Witnesses and would not typically be a Bible used by an Evangelical pastor. The pastor would most likely use the King James or the New American Standard Bible. In addition, in the preacher's office the 2013 versions and the "Theocratic Ministry School" book also printed by the JW's. See more »

In-Lawfully Yours Fresh, Fun, Engaging
11 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

In-Lawfully Yours is a fresh, fun and engaging film.

As romantic-comedies go, it sparkles. Mainly due to the palpable chemistry between Chelsey Crisp and Joe Williamson in the lead roles.

Crisp plays the part of a New Yorker who is jilted by her husband and winds up going back to her former husband's home town to help her ex mother-in-law (played to perfection by Marilu Henner).

Williamson, meanwhile is a pastor in the small town where Crisp's former mother-in-law lives.

I've seen a lot of romantic comedies, but seldom with the energy that Crisp and Williamson generate together.

They are warm and real, and genuinely funny together.

That's why I've given In-Lawfully Yours ten stars.
