Movie Reviews

An excellent peak into Amish society
Kelli | Somewhere out west | 08/01/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What would it be like if you landed in an old order Amish society? In this movie two materialistic New Yorkers have to hide out in an Amish society. They learn how to work, and they also learn about the what is really important in life. It's a really funny movie."
Adventures in Amish Land
K. Hill | Windsor, NC USA | 03/06/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film is all that it promises. Tim Allen's ultra rich character finds himself in trouble with the IRS after his swindling accountant (Seinfeld's Wayne Knight) embezzles millions from his company. Allen and wife Kirstie Alley find themselves on the run. They end up stranded together in an Amish town. To hide, the two pretend to be Amish. This leads to many funny situations. They learn some lessons from the Amish and mend their rocky marriage. This movie was very funny and much better than I thought it would be."
A good family film
Robin Goodfellow | Land of the Fairies | 08/15/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For Richer Or Poorer is a great film for the entire family. Believe me."
It grows on you
B. E. Newell | San Diego, CA | 01/15/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Initially, I thought the movie was good, but not spectacular. The more I see it, the more I realize how true most of its sentiments are. It shows us what is really important in life, and it is not the new Jaguar in the driveway. I like the "outtakes" and "deletions" during the credits, as well as the follow-up with them at the same pond that started their time in "hiding." My wife and I and our 5-year-old son now love this movie."
