The Pitch

Dr. Belinda Owens ends the Love Comes Saga once and for all.

The Humans

Sarah Jones, Haylie Duff, Jordan Bridges, Patty Duke and Courtney Halverson

The Nutshell

Dr. Belinda Owens is doing well and working with a second female doctor. Dr. Annie is pregnant and she’s staying with Belinda and Lee until the baby is born. Belinda’s mother-in-law is always lording over Belinda, but continues to work as her midwife. Times are rough, but all of the women manage to survive the turmoil. That is until Belinda’s adopted daughter discovers boys.

Look too close and it’s NSFW.

The Lowdown

Love Finds a Home continues the long line of Janette Oke adaptations. We’ve gone through a long line of female leads until we arrive at the now adult Belinda. Played by the lesser Duff sister, we watch as she tries to boldly make her way in the frontier. Patty Duke embarasses herself as a one-note hag bitching about everything. Eventually, the two women learn life lessons together.

The male meat actor gets a few lines, but he’s mainly there to reassure the faith-based crowd that Dr. Belinda isn’t a gay. The film’s so short that you can’t really get past the basic setup. No characters get developed past their rather rough introductions. Eventually, we get a new baby and the townspeople learn how to function as inane citizens. Laughs are had, tears are cried and brains are left empty. Your grandparents will love to watch this.

When you compare the finale film to the previous work, a decline in quality is obvious. But, that’s like comparing a Subway meatball sandwich to something found in a school cafeteria. Both properties aren’t the top of their meaty field, but they get the job done.

High-five Darabont style.

The Package

DVD comes with nothing. I think I might’ve saw some trailers for FOX Faith films. But, that’s not really a supplemental feature. It’s advertising for a company’s religious subset of motion pictures. If you’re not a dirty liberal, you might want to rent this.
