Holy Matrimony (1994)
The plot line of this Disney family comedy makes it sound a whole lot more sleazy than it really is. Sexy blond Havana and her boyfriend Peter are on the lam after robbing a carnival. They run to a Hutterite colony in Canada. This is where Peter grew up and he is given a warm welcome. Havana because of her trashy looks and worldly ways is treated with suspicion until Peter convinces them that she is his fiance and wants to convert. They marry and Havana does her best to adhere to their customs. She gives up make-up, cigarettes, TV, and tries to be submissive to her man. Part of her devotion has to do with the fact that Peter hid the money and she doesn't know where it is. But after Peter is killed in a car accident she decides to stay and try to fit in. Quoting the Bible, she invokes the Hutterite custom of marrying the brother of the deceased. The trouble is, Zeke is only 12-years old and is not thrilled at the prospect of marrying anyone. The marriage is, of course, chaste. In time, Havana finds herself becoming as a big sister to the boy. She eventually leaves when a shady FBI agent picks up her trail. … More
