It's incredibly rare to see an American movie with a Christian perspective that's more invested in philosophizing and empathizing than in eschatological pandering, and for that alone "Old Fashioned" deserves commendation.

This low-budget, faith-based film -- with a cast of mostly unknowns -- is little more than a made-for-cable movie. But it offers an endearing look at what it's like to fall in love -- not lust.

The movie is self-conscious about its more on-the-nose aspects, which doesn't help much. It's also self-conscious about the weirdness of the world it espouses, which does.

A refreshingly-principled parable proving that a picture championing chastity can be every bit as entertaining and enjoyable as one promoting promiscuity.

Old Fashioned's male writer, director and star seems to think his vision is what women want, but his attempt at squeaky-clean alternative isn't just boring, it's flat-out undesirable.

I admire some of Old Fashioned, but it's one that should have been a tad more accessible.

Just because it's clean doesn't mean it's a good movie.

February 17, 2015
The leading man often seems more like a brooding menace in this handsomely produced but painfully slow faith-based romantic drama.
February 14, 2015
Even if you agree with Clay's rigid moral stance, you'll probably be put off by this remarkably dull, tone-deaf argument for chastity.

At least the title is accurate for this painfully wholesome romance.

OLD FASHIONED has a great deal of trouble turning its not-very-dynamic concept -- not dating -- into a watchable movie. But it also has trouble arguing its own point.

February 12, 2015
Disturbing is the film's apparent conviction that the surefire way to a woman's heart involves lots of candles and a mani-pedi, the sort of notion that isn't so much cute and old-fashioned as it is acutely offensive.
February 12, 2015
Old Fashioned feels like a familiar work of juvenilia, something similar to those terribly insightful relationship dramas your college roommate wrote on lonely nights.

[Old Fashioned] raises some interesting questions, but in the end it's not credible.
February 12, 2015
The latest "faith-based" film set in one man's demented vision of the American heartland, and luckily it is too laughable to take seriously.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Old-fashioned is right. Like how the Taliban is old-fashioned. Behold some pretty despicable passive-aggressive othering of women in the name of 'respect.'
February 12, 2015
It must be pretty neat to make a movie that mostly consists of people telling you how chivalrous and morally right you are and how much everybody loves you, but that's no excuse for making it this boring.

Old Fashioned longs to return to the good ol' days, before the scourges of online dating and one-night stands sapped all the sweetness from modern courtship.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
February 10, 2015
Hipper than your typical faith-based drama, but the romance is such chemistry-starved hokum that the movie doesn't deliver.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Old Fashioned is excruciatingly dull. It's like watching a movie in slow motion. I had to force myself to stop looking at my watch, because it was discouraging how little time had gone by whenever I checked.
