The Takeover


Boy meets girl. Rather, Jadin meets Ashley, the ultimate con artist. This good, clean, Christian story uses the best comedic gaffs, including nosy neighbors, hearing voices in your head, and the worst nightmare of having one’s house and life taken over by cons. It is rich in humor and self-inflicted misery that ends happily ever after.

Dove Review

Jaden is a selfish and vain womanizer who seems to be focused on nothing more than impressing women when he literally bumps into Ashley, a free-spirited young lady. Both lie frequently to get their ways, but Jaden takes her into his house along with her odd family who have been living on the streets. When Jaden’s family business is in trouble, he seems lost and unable to deal with the situations in his life. That’s when what seems to be the voice of God begins quoting scripture to him. As things spiral out of control, he begins to open up his heart to the messages he is being given.

This film is a little disjointed, and some of the scenes make little sense or even seem to pertain to the overall storyline. However, ultimately the theme of the story is that if you seek God, He will answer your prayers. Due to the spiritual encouragement that is presented in this movie, we are awarding it our Dove Faith-Friendly Seal for ages 12 and over.
