In Lawfully Yours was made in partnership by Home Theatre Films, the producers of Christian Mingle, and Regent University’s School of Communication & The Arts, recipient of more than 400 film awards, including first place for comedy in the 2016 College Television Awards.
The cast is an all star cast with Chelsey Crisp (“Fresh off the Boat”), Marilu Henner (“Taxi,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) and Corbin Bernsen (“LA Law”, “Psych”, Major League) along with Philip Boyd (“Tyler Perry’s The Have and the Have Nots”) and Joe Williamson (“Grey’s Anatomy”).
The story is sweet, funny and sometimes serious. There is romance, betrayal, friendship, and coming to faith. Jesse is the main character, a bubbly New Yorker who is cheated on and eventually divorced by her husband. That doesn’t keep her from helping her recently widowed mother in law pack up her belongings to move. Jesse and the mother in law become very close. It is at Mom’s church that Jesse does some funny things, not knowing at all how to act in church! She and the widowed pastor become good friends and begin to fall in love when everything goes haywire!
I am not going to share anything else, so I won’t spoil the plot for you! You’re just going to have to get yourself a copy and find out for yourself what happens!
I would use caution in showing this to young teens or kids. There is a scene where Jesse catches her husband in bed with another woman and although everyone is covered by a towel or shirt, you know what happened and Jesse talks about it several times. Jesse also makes inappropriate jokes with the pastor and his congregation about not “sleeping” with him.
I enjoyed the movie, It was a sweet story and done well. I was impressed that University students helped make this movie and that it was written by one of their professors.
