The Way Home DVD Review

Last night, I watched the movie The Way Home, starring Dean Cain.  I still think of him as Superman. *swoon*

Based on a true story, it tells the story of Randy and Christal Simpkins. As they are getting ready to leave for vacation, Christal confronts her husband about spending more time with work than with his family. Supposed to keep an eye on their two year-old, Joe, Randy goes inside the house for just a minute to check his work emails. When the couple goes back outside, Joe is nowhere to be found.

As their search continues and Joe still cannot be found, hundreds of people from the community show up to help search. The movie tells their story of their faith and leads Randy to see what is really important.

I was a little uncomfortable watching this movie. Because it's one of my worst nightmares to have my children disappear.

However, it was inspiring to see the community all come together and pray for their child to be found.

On a night when there wasn't anything on tv, it filled the time. But, it is not a dvd that I will bring out again and again.

I review for BookSneeze

I remember Dean Cain *swoon* also played a guy in Northern CA who was suspected of killing his wife. Can't remember the name of the guy. And it was hard to see him in that light. He's Superman!

It made uncomfortable just to read this on your post. There is no way that I could watch the entire movie. It is probably every moms greatest fear. I'm gonna have to skip this one. Thanks for the warning.

Rather than this being a mother's greatest fear, this film could be one of a mother's greatest resources. When the searchers were out and about looking for Joe, there were abandoned stoves with the doors still on the ovens, old wells that hadn't been capped and sealed, drainage ponds that hadn't been drained or filled. Time was wasted while the father drew a map of the surrounding area with the various hazards.

My suggestions for worried mothers -- take the time to print out google view of your surrounding area, marking the hazards. Walk your property with the eye of an inquisitive child and get rid of those hazards you see. Cut back on holiday shopping and backfill the sludge pits. The child you save might be your own.
