Nancy Stafford (Matlock) and Michael Joiner (The Grace Card) play Josie and Ted Talbott, a married couple so financially desperate that they enlist Josie’s bumbling brother Moochie (Torry Martin, My Name is Paul) and make an ill-conceived plan to rob a rich man’s home. Unfortunately, they picked the wrong mansion and soon find that their intended victim has more in store for them than they thought. The resident is Doc (Danny Vinson, Talladega Nights), a religious man who is equally desperate, but not for money. He wants to save a soul. He traps them inside and won’t let them go until they’ve made a decision to follow Jesus. This good-natured comedy tilts heavily toward the mad-cap side of the street, but it is definitely safe for the whole family.
“...a masterful mix of humor and meaning...each character is very deep and believable.”
