We review a fun romantic drama that shows the advantages of a pure and Godly relationship.
Welcome to The FishFlix.com Christian Movie podcast. Every Wednesday we review a Christian film, informing you about the story, production quality, and family friendliness. Our goal is to bring you all the latest news and insights on Christian movies and recommend wholesome films for you to watch together as a family. I’m your host Noah Metzger and today we’ll be reviewing Pitching Love and Catching Faith.
Pitching Love and Catching Faith released last year in 2015 from Star Mountain Pictures and tells the story of a man’s desire to remain pure in his relationships. If you’re interested in finding out more about this film after our review, you can find it on our website at www.fishflix.com.
Heather is an attractive, competitive, softball player, sweet and sassy-who is used to winning…but with guys she tends to strike out once they find out she’s not their type. Tyler’s a competitive baseball player, charming, and saintly, who hasn’t kissed… So what happens when Heather tries to get his first kiss, and Tyler tries to win her heart to help launch his baseball career? It results in a head-on competition igniting a series of of light-hearted ploys of cat-and-mouse chase that will keep you interested to the end. To top it all off, falling in love wasn’t a part of their plan…so now Tyler must choose between his dream, and Heather. And she must choose between love, and loneliness.
Pitching Love and Catching Faith is an interesting movie as other than Old Fashioned, there are very few Christian movies designed to show what a pure and Godly relationship looks like. It’s very important issue, and one that I think definitely needs to be discussed. It’s encouraging to see them tackling this issue in this movie and I really enjoyed some of the unique perspectives this movie brings to the table. Even Tyler, who is a proponent of purity and godly relationships, isn’t always sure what exactly that looks like. But he does his very best to continue doing what is right and what he knows God would want him to do.
If you’re looking for a romance movie that takes a different angle on relationships than what we know from what we see in Hollywood movies, I think you’ll really enjoy this interesting flick. While many characters in the film don’t understand the concept of a Godly relationship and instead try to just do what the world shows them, they come to understand the many advantages of pursuing a godly relationship.
The movie has a decent level of production quality, and I think they made a wise choice in not trying to overcomplicate it or make it too elaborate. The cast and setting is simple, and they decide instead to focus their time on trying to tell a cohesive narrative, which for the most part they succeed. While the film might have been able to stand some trimming and paring down, on the whole I think it was a well done story.
If you want to learn more about a Godly design for a relationship, I would highly recommend you check out Pitching Love and Catching Faith.
This Christian movie is free of language; the only thing to really watch out for in this film is some of the romantic themes. There are some people shown in the movie who haven’t always had godly relationships and while nothing is shown, there are some implications throughout the movie. We always like to follow the Dove Foundation which approves this movie for ages 12 and up. But as always, we recommend you watch the movie first and decide if it’s appropriate for your particular family.
