Movie Review: Midway to Heaven
While I was Deseret Book last week, the cashier talked me into purchasing the new release of "Midway to Heaven".
I asked him if it was good and he assured me it was. He told me the director was the same one who produced The Best Two Years (which I adore) and it was kind of sad like Charly (which I also loved).
Here is a synopsis of the show:
A father still morning the recent death of his wife struggles to get back on his feet and accept his daughter's know-it-all boyfriend in this romantic comedy drama adapted from the novel by Dean Hughes.
10 thumbs down - well OK 2 thumbs down.
I didn't like it.
First of all when I purchase an LDS movie, I want to have some type of inspiring gospel message or loads of humor.
This had none of humor or gospel message.
Brady and I kept looking at each other - Like - REALLY????? We are watching this dumb show.
I had hopes that it would get better - because the guy at Deseret book told me it was good.
Well.... it didn't. Nether of us liked it. I guess it's off to Amazon to try and sell this movie with the hopes someone will buy it. If not, it's being donated to the D.I.
My recommendation to you: Don't waste your time by watching it AND don't waste your money by purchasing it.
It saddens me to leave such a cruel review - but I have got to stop buying movies before I watch them. I am just kicking myself. I wish someone else would have blogged a review so I would have known better - that is why I felt I needed to let you know not to purchase it.
