Big time sports agent, Rob Decker, takes his cocky attitude to a little town where he plans to sign a budding superstar high school pitcher. But it’s clear on arrival everything is stacked against him. The pitcher, Shawn, has a stiff resolve to keep his commitment to go to college. When bribes fail, Decker sees his best chance is to work his way into the good graces of boys’ ranch owner, Daisy, where Shawn lives.
While stranded on foot, Decker makes his way in and out of the tiny town, from the barbershop to a local game, trying to find something or someone he can use to accomplish his purpose. But he quickly uncovers the townsfolk’s simple faith and wisdom beyond his comprehension, and he finds himself sinking deeper into the local way of life.
Overall, Ring the Bell is a great movie. Quality production, good story, fair acting, and a straightforward message of Jesus Christ rarely seen in films today. I could pick at some cheesy parts, and the lack of conflict to keep the story moving. But I won’t, because in the end, it’s a clean movie the family can enjoy.
Oh, and there is a Casting Crowns’ concert included as part of the story. Kind of hard to beat that!
