Clean, Funny Family Movie - How Refreshing! by Katie98usma on 4/15/14

Wow, I'm shocked at the negative reviews and people returning the movie! This is exactly the kind of film we need to be supporting! Are the words "Jesus" or "God" ever mentioned? No, but that wasn't the point of this movie and why are we taking issue over it? This was a film you could have your neighbors over to watch or recommend to a friend without shoving Christianity down their throats. There are wonderful life lessons and a biblical-worldview communicated without being "preachy." Hard work; humility and willingness to accept criticism; perseverance; a wife graciously supporting her husband through good and bad, yet not being a doormat; siblings who actually like each other and get along, but still tease good-naturedly; fighting for what is right even when it would be easier to just accept defeat; parents who don't completely hover over their children, but are there to support 100%; a family trying to figure out how to remain united in the midst of a life crisis...and succeeding. And it was so refreshing to have a movie be funny without resorting to potty-humor, crudity, vulgarity, or sexuality! Our entire family was in stitches during the whole film. I enjoyed the artsy filmography, although I saw some reviews that others did not. I thought it was a huge improvement over what some Christian films are like. This was a great Family-Friendly-Yet-Not-Overtly-Christian film. Well done, CAMFAM!

Impressed with the variety of reviews! by Kirk on 4/10/14

Hey everyone, this is Kirk. Of course I want to see what you all think of Mercy Rule and… wow! Some of you loved it (like I do) and some of you seem to be scratching your heads, wondering what you saw and why I made the choices I did. I loved making this movie because it reflects much of my own family life after becoming Christians. No "come to Jesus" events left in my house- we've all joined the family, and are now living a principled life for Jesus, sacrificing, waiting, working, eating, celebrating, struggling, and growing. The coach was a crazy character who turns out to have more wisdom for Cody while drinking root beer than any coach I know, Sister Bea was a heartwarming and adorable character who nurtured her little brother with amazing humor and skill, Tim Hawkins adds fun, funny, and fundy conservative lessons for us if we have ears to hear, and every time I watch my wife's scenes with me over dinner, her words still give me, as a man trying to provide for his family, goose bumps and make my heart 10 times larger. If you haven't downloaded or opened the Family Discussion Questions and Study Guide that came free with your DVD, I recommend you check it out for some of the great life lessons studies that can serve as conversation starters with your kids around your dinner table. As for the deliberate pacing and lots of "slo-mo," I've learned to not be in such a rush when good things are happening in my family. Like hair raising, nail-biting baseball games, frying bacon, trading smiles with my bride, celebrating victories, grieving others' losses, and fighting hard for what's good, beautiful and true. That's what my life is about now. The only surprise I had while reading these reviews was seeing that they were either hot or cold- not many in the middle. I love that. That means Mercy Rule took risks and didn't choose the predictable and lukewarm options it could have. Thanks for watching and commenting!!! I am honored all of you not only were interested enough to watch this labor of love, but to take more valuable time and review on this site. Next in the CAMFAM film lineup… CHRISTMAS!

Love Kirk Cameron as an actor, but he should just stick to acting. This was the most horrible movie I have ever seen. by Amy on 4/6/14

It is painful for me to criticize a guy who has stood up for Christian values in Hollywood. This was a horribly done movie, Kirk. I was so disappointed when I sat down with my family to watch what we thought would be a great family film. We love baseball movies, and thought that was what it was going to be about with Christian values surrounding it. Best of both worlds, right? This was anything but what we expected. This movie was a great disappointment.

Movie Time!!! by Lori S on 3/22/14

Another home run movie for the Cameron Family!!!! Can't wait to see what's in store next!

Not family-friendly, No real Christian Values by Andrea on 3/21/14

This was a disappointment in so many ways. 1. It was not a movie for everyone in the family. While the actor did not actually drink or smoke in the movie, several references were made to smoking and alcohol. My young children did not understand the message coming across there. I actually had to explain to my 4 and 6 year what "something strong and dark" was (alcohol) because of this movie. The Bible says to abstain from the appearance of evil. Please do not advertise a movie for the whole family if alcohol and cigarette smoking are themes in the movie even if you are just showing it's a temptation for some. Small children do not understand it was not consumed, only that it was present. 2. It was boring. Need I say more here? 3. I am still scratching my head to see strong Christian values in this. Where were they?

Great movie! by Brad on 3/17/14

Loved it!

A movie that puts life's troubles in perspective.... by Brad on 3/17/14

I think this movie sets a tone of love of family,baseball and God all in perspective....
It's funny... It's realistic... It's worthy of watching...
Obviously some the negative reviewers did not utilize the free downloaded questions to follow up with the family about the lessons learned in the film. A lot to take out of this film was positive.... Let's focus on those things.... Like life in general... Colossians 3:12-14
I coach Baseball... Very well acted and it might have dragged a bit but not enough to be a big critic... We have a non Christian audience that will get this film and see its important points... Without hitting them over the head with a baseball bat ( no pun intended ).. I actually would have asked the thief who was trying to steal his business to get out sooner and would have probably reacted more strongly... Nice Job.. Kirk! Are we not human? Be real... That's what this film did.. Hope to somehow show this to my daughters school sports teams and my middle school baseball team there.. Thank you Cameron family for making an impact for others in all that you do! Know that our family is doing the same....Bradford Smith family Elkton,Maryland

Great movie by Lori on 3/9/14

This movie was wonderful and funny! It's such a blessing to be able to watch movies that do not have any violence or foul language, a movie you can actually walk away from and not grieve the was a wonderful movie! I love our brother kirk as an actor because he exhalts The Lord in all he does. I would recommend this movie to everyone!

Great! by Pat Work on 3/3/14

Great movie for the entire family:) Why wouldn't anyone enjoy this? Love watching Kirk share his love for the Lord.

Cute movie by Rachel on 2/23/14

I can't believe I am hearing so much negative in the previous reviews. I think sometimes Christians forget about humor- or how to relax and not take everything so darn seriously. As for the plot being hard to follow- are you all CRAZY. If you couldn't follow the plot I am sorry, my six year old got it. No questionable language, no sexual references...And I do not believe a movie marked as family entertainment has to mention Jesus every five seconds. Sometimes we can just see a nice clean movie with values, and take away the lessons..

Very Disappointed - not recommended by Cathy on 2/16/14

We are returning this movie and have never done this before. We were looking forward to it, but we were sadly very disappointed. This was not a good movie on any level, and certainly not for young kids. There were very bad scenes - as one example, Kirk pulls out a bat and threatens to use it on a man in a business suit during a meeting. The baseball coach is a terrible stereotype, and we could hardly see anything positive about the baseball story, which was one of the reasons we bought this movie. The language was questionable at times. We were certainly looking for a family-"friendly" movie, but this was just not it at all. We could hardly believe this was the movie that got such great PR ahead of time. So very sorry to give this review, but we feel others should know.

Dissapointing by Christopher on 2/14/14

I agree with a previous reviewer. I was looking forward to watching this movie, and I went out and purchased it the day it came out. However, it was poorly done, and didn't have a strong Christian message at all. I was looking forward to seeing Tim Hawkins and Kirk in this movie, but overall it was a disappointment.

Disappointed by Noelle on 2/12/14

I really looked forward to this movie and had pre-ordered it. Unfortunately, it did not hold my interest nor that of my son's. It had its moments where it had some humor, and it did have some decent lessons. But it just wasn't a very good movie in our opinion. The story itself was hard to follow at times, and the video angles were often shaky and disruptive. It didn't seem to flow well, and there seemed to be a lot of over-dramatization. It seemed like it would never end, and when it did we were left feeling like there was something missing.

Fun, but full of life's lessons as well by Dutch on 1/28/14

Kirk and Chelsea Cameron are great togather in this family film which has something for every age. The story line and characters are colorful and there is plenty of entertainment, and yet it is also full of quick lessons on life and relationships and principles to live by. I highly recommend it!

Great movie for family movie night! by Big Al on 1/27/14

The latest flick from Kirk Cameron, Mercy Rule, is a baseball movie that the whole family can watch. It is very engaging, funny and inspirational. It's completely clean, so the whole family can watch it. There are many solid lessons that I can teach my kids about adversity and overcoming obstacles. It inspired me to do a better job leading my family, not in a "beat me the over head" way, but in an inspired way. Great work Kirk!
