Item description for Road To Redemption by World Wide Pictures...
Overview Road to Redemption is a hilarious cross-country chase for lost money, lost relationships, and a shred of self-respect. God's grace covers even life's biggest mistakes.
Amanda Tucker is in trouble ... big trouble. After she and her boyfriend, Alan Fischer, "borrow" money from her boss, then lose it on a horse race, then set his office on fire to cover it up -- Amanda finds herself $250,000 in debt and being chased by the Mob. The only person who can help her now is her dear, old, rich grandfather, Nathan Tucker, whom she hasn't seen since she was a little girl. But that doesn't stop Amanda. She's talked her way through worse situations. Good ol' Gramps should be a pushover, right? Wrong! Nathan Tucker is a witty, kind and compassionate man with a weak heart and a strong faith in God. He's no fool and he sees right through Amanda's plan. But he's got a plan of his own. Instead of refusing her, he makes a deal with her. He 'll give her the money she wants after she takes a little trip with him to his favorite fishing hole in Lake Redemption, Montana. This is the same place where Amanda sat on her Grandpa's knee so many years before. Seeing no better option, Amanda reluctantly agrees and soon finds herself on the "road to redemption" with her grandfather sitting next to her and her boyfriend and the Mob close behind. She's definitely in for an adventure, but the destination is not quite what she expected.

Cheesy, but good. Jan 5, 2007
The overall theme and message of this movie is great, but the action gets a little cheesy at times. Don't let this discourage you, however, it is a worthwhile film.
Awesome entertaining entertaining comedy with a message Nov 30, 2005
This is simply one the best movies I've seen in a very long time. I wasn't expecting much when I sat down to watch but was surprised how much I was moved watching it. The base of the movie is comedy but I also found myself being anxious and moved to tears, especially at the end. It's actually a very happy ending, but it makes you cry. It's also got some nice stunts and a cool car chase. The Christian message of salvation is wonderfully done in this movie and I think appeals to everyone. I highly highly recommend this movie for your collection and to give to others who need some joy and hope in their lives.
Very funny and moving Apr 26, 2004
It's always a risk to buy a DVD sight unseen, but I bought this gem based on some reviews I've read and the fact that it's made by Worldwide Pictures who have produced some great movies (Vow to Cherish, Something to sing about).
Road to Redemption tells of a young couple Amanda Tucker (the lovely Julie Condra) and Alan Fischer (Jay Underwood) who are sick of struggling along financially so "borrow" some money from Amanda's boss who also happens to be a Mob boss, along with the money comes racing tips for some fixed races so off they go to the racing track. All does not go to plan and Amanda finds herself having to leave town to track down her Grandfather Nathan (Pat Hingle) in order to hit him up for some cash so she can pay back her boss.
There are some excellent performances put in by the lead actors as well as the supporting mobsters Tony Longo as Vincent the enforcer is very amusing as it Wes Studi as Frank Lightfoot. There are some real funny set pieces in this film and some of it reminded me of the also excellent Dumb and Dumber (minus the crudeness).
Road to Redemption is a family friendly comedy with real heart. It's extremely amusing and a joy to watch. It also very moving and touching as well as Amanda gets to know her Grandfather and learns about what is most important in life. I recommend it whole-heartily for anyone needing a good laugh and it's refreshingly free from smut, foul language and jokes made in bad taste.
Enjoy this film and thanks for reading.
Is the Mob after you? God can handle it! Apr 30, 2003
This is one Christian film that lots of people will enjoy. I mean believers in Christ and non-believers. It's a great insight on following the road to Christ. It's about a couple, Amanda (Julie Condra) and Alan (Jay Underwood) who found stolen mob money. They decide to gamble the money on horse racing and lose the money. The gangsters find out about this and go after the couple. The grandaughter, Amanda seeks the help of her wealthy grandpa Nathan (Pat Hingle) for the money she needs to pay back the mob. But grandpa has plans. It seems he "got religion" and is willing to give her the money. But she has to drive him to visit his favorite fishing hole some 800 miles away. There are some breathe-taking scenes of Utah. So they're all on the run from the mob and along the way learn a valuable lesson of choices and consequences. In the meantime, God gets Amanda's attention and God gives the mob a run for their money. The movie is rated PG for thematic elements and mild violent content, but still a clean Christian movie. It's advised that very young children shouldn't view this. For older teens and adults may find a lesson to be learned that doing something you know is wrong can only get you into deeper trouble. Billy Graham's 'Road to Redemption' is really a great movie with a great message to lead those to Christ.
This movie is really great! Mar 19, 2003
We had movie night this past Sunday at church, and I have to tell you that this movie really moved within the church. I thought it was going to be a cheesy movie, but little did I know that the movie was going to be awesome. I think that this movie would make a great witnessing tool for non-believers to get an insight of how someone would come to know Christ. God Bless All!!
