Old Fashioned DVD Review

Hey neighbors!

How many of you have seen the movie based on the Rene Gutteridge book of the same title?  It was just released on DVD June 16th.  The movie is about a young man, Clay Walsh who has changed since his wild college days.  He now has some strong ideas regarding dating and romance.  He now owns an antique shop and has an upstairs apartment for rent.  Enter Amber Hewson.  She has a much different outlook on life than Clay.  The two although drawn to each other have many issues to work through.  Amber has trouble believing the rules Clay has set down for romance and love.  DVD released June 16th and is rated PG-13.  (Run Time is 115 minutes)

I was a little disappointed in the fact that his closest friends seem to mock him and seem very worldly.  He is seen in a few situations I would not expect him tone found in.  Also I do not recommend this even for teenagers, because of the content discussed at times.

I do appreciate the stands he takes regarding how to treat a woman, no kissing, or even being alone in a room alone with a female, but once again the movie makes him seem the strange or weird person who needs to change.

I have not heard of this movie until now. It does sound interesting. I feel as you do about him cast as the kinda weird one because of his values/beliefs. I wish it were more of him cast as a leader figure that others liked and respected because of or even though he does feel the way he does. Thanks for the review.

This is the first time I've heard of this movie. By the name of the movie, "Old Fashioned" that represents the views of one will be old-fashioned in one way or another. However, in today's society, old-fashioned would put you in the weird or outcast category.
