Former frat boy, Clay Walsh (Rik Swartzwelder), has given up his reckless carousing and now runs an antique shop in a small Midwestern town. There, he has become notorious for his theories on love and romance as well as his devout beliefs. When Amber Hewson (Elizabeth Ann Roberts), a free-spirited young woman with a restless soul rents the apartment above his shop, she finds herself surprisingly drawn to his strong faith and noble ideas. Together, they attempt the impossible: an old fashioned courtship in contemporary America.

Common Sense Says
Faith-based romance argues for purity but lacks energy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Old Fashioned is a faith-based romance about a character who, because of his troubled past, wishes to marry -- but he refuses to date, touch, or be in the same room with any woman beforehand. Audiences who buy into the character's beliefs may find it refreshing, but others will likely be baffled. And for all of the main character's purity, the movie does deal with sexual/sex-related themes (unexpected pregnancy, etc.) and has frequent sex talk, including a "shock jock" radio DJ who talks about women and sex. Viewers see images from a Girls Gone Wild-type DVD (i.e. bikini-clad young women flirting/vamping), as well as a stripper at a bachelor party. A bouncer threatens the main character, and a woman tells a story about how an ex-boyfriend broke her wrist. Language isn't an issue, and substance use is limited to adult characters drinking socially in bars.
