Pleasant enough, provided it is cleaned up for TV
This is a good movie. I wouldn't call it a family comedy but it is quite funny. There is lots of bad language, some of which didn't make it past censors, and more sex talk than I am comfortable with. Plus Jane Lynch has a memorable role as a woman who likes S & M.
On the other hand, there is respect for Christian values. While many of the characters yell "Jesus" like a curse word, Jesus means a lot to Tory. Although Tory wants to follow the Kama Sutra, and I'm pretty sure she's talking about having sex before being married, which is supposed to be a no-no. And she does a couple of other things that go against her faith. Still, Sara Rue does a great job in the role and Tory is mostly quite adorable and intelligent.
Phillip Vaden is quite good as well.
A singer named John Doe does a fine job as an actor, playing country singer Sissy Taylor. Don't be fooled by the name. He is tough but friendly.
Justina Machado, as nasty as she is, is quite talented.
There is a tender scene where Rapael Sbarge as Vincent's father assures the boy he loves him even though he is leaving.
Other actors in this movie do a good job too.
On the other hand, Steve Hytner, playing a businessman who has no respect for Vincent, comes across as little more than a cartoon.
It's worth seeing.
