About the movie:
Ring The Bell shares the story of a slick, big city sports agent Rob Decker who seems to have it all. But on his latest mission to sign a high school baseball superstar, Rob becomes stranded in a small town where the simplicity of life—and the faith of the people—stand in stark contrast to his own fast-paced, win-at-all-costs mindset. Torn between these two worlds, will Rob have the courage to let faith transform his life? This heartwarming story of redemption is sure to entertain and inspire the whole family.
Ring The Bell features a host of well-known Christian music artists, such as Mark Hall along with his band Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Matthew West, all who play a role in this inspirational drama. Several former and current Major League Baseball all-stars are also featured in the film: ESPN analysts John Kruk and Rick Sutcliffe (a former Cy Young Award winner), along with Ben Zobrist.
This family-friendly movie was produced by Mark Miller, Beach Street Records' founder and Casting Crowns’ producer. Miller, who is also the lead singer and founder of country music group Sawyer Brown, co-wrote the script with Thomas Weber and Weber directed the production.

We have movie night at our house every Friday night. Quite honestly, it is difficult to find good, family friendly movies especially as your children get older. My oldest is 16 and it seems like most of the movies made for her age range have some kind of inappropriate content in it. I was excited when I was given an opportunity to review Ring the Bell.
I knew when I saw that Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Matthew West (some of my daughter's favorite musicians) were involved in this movie that she would like it. Chelsea really enjoyed the characters in Ring the Bell. Her favorite character was Maggie because she was funny and did things that she wanted to do without caring what people thought about her. The characters were real and believable. She really liked the story and the message it taught that no matter what plans you have for your life, God has a better plan and it is never to late to follow His. She really liked the Ringing of the Bell when you make the decision to let God in your life. Her favorite part was the Casting Crowns concert. There was a slight bit of romance but it did not over power the story or take the place of the grace and faith it taught. Ring the Bell is a family friendly movie and there is nothing inappropriate in it: no blood, guts, bad language, or romance overkill, although it may be better appreciated by slightly older children. I would recommend this movie and pray that it motivates those who haven't yet made the decision to go ahead and Ring the Bell.
