About Ring the Bell:
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.

My Review:
Ring the Bell had some great attributes that I feel most of us look for in a movie.  It made me laugh, cry and, most importantly, it made me think.  Even though the main story was about a man finding God in a small town, there was also a message that rang out of using your talents for the purpose God intended.

This movie has appearances by some well-known Christian artists, which was neat to see , but it has some awesome music in it that I could listen to over and over again!  The special features were fun to watch and see how they incorporated each of the Christian artists into the movie...plus I had the opportunity to listen to the music again! ;-)

The only thing I have to say that seemed a little 'off' about the movie was that the main character overplayed his part a bit.  I've never met a man of the profession he was playing, though, so I could be wrong.  He just seemed a little too energetic.  I don't feel that it took away from the movie though and all-in-all it was a joy to watch!

I would highly recommend Ring the Bell!  It's a wonderful movie that the whole family can watch and enjoy together. :-)

I love family movies, where you feel safe watching with your grandchildren and the movie has a message for all. It has happy, sad times, but don't have to worry about language or sex in the movie. I would watch this with my granddaughters and hubby
