Ring the Bell DVD Review & Giveaway

I recently received a Ring the Bell DVD to review. Ring the Bell tells the story of a sports agent, Rob Decker. His work is his life. He even says his clients are his kids. To him, there is nothing outside of work. He won’t even return his mother’s phone calls. While trying to sign a high school baseball superstar, Rob ends up in a small town like he’s never been in before.

Ring the Bell

The small town rallies around the young baseball player and helps him stick with his plan to go to college. The town also rallies around the home that he lives in, an orphanage. Rob is drawn to this simple life that is so far from his own life in the city. He is asked by the brother and sister team that run the orphanage to take all the kids to a Casting Crowns concert. Casting Crowns sings in concert in this movie, as well as doing an altar call. Yes, an altar call right in the middle of the movie. Love it!

Rob’s eyes are opened to the life he has been living. He even calls his mother! After visiting this small town, and the people in it, Rob’s life is transformed. The movie ends with him still in the small town, but you just know that when he goes back to his job and the city, everything will be different now.

In addition to Mark Hall and Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman and Matthew West have roles in this movie. This family friendly movie was produced by Mark Miller, Beach Street Records’ founder and Casting Crowns’ producer. Miller, who is also the lead singer and founder of country music group Sawyer Brown, co-wrote the script with Thomas Weber and Weber directed the production.

Several former and current Major League Baseball all-stars are also featured in the film: ESPN analysts John Kruk and Rick Sutcliffe (a former Cy Young Award winner), along with Ben Zobrist. Now, I don’t know who any of those baseball people are, but that knowledge isn’t needed to thoroughly enjoy Ring the Bell. Even though the beginning storyline is about baseball, this isn’t a “sports” movie. It’s an awesome family movie about faith and redemption.

There are many funny moments in this movie as well, that will have your whole family laughing. Maggie is my favorite character in the movie. I laughed every time she was on the screen.

Now, you may be wondering about the name of the movie, Ring the Bell. Ringing the bell is a significant part of the movie. You see, whenever someone accepts Jesus as their Savior, they get to ring the bell. This is just awesome. I seriously want to put a bell in my yard! The bell is rung a few times during the movie. But the one that really got to me was at the end of the movie. I cried. Really. I cried at the end of this movie. Not sad tears, but oh, so happy tears.

I highly recommend Ring the Bell for the whole family!

    I love to watch this movie because it reminds me how God loves me so much that He gave me a chance to change and to rediscover what’s life to offer and more to enjoy. Growing up is about being strong and accepting that it’s not always happy ending however the good thing is we learned from all either bad or good.

    This movie is something to watch for since it’s an inspiration to move on.
