Midway to Heaven
From Michael Flynn, producer of The Best Two Years, comes Midway to Heaven, based on the popular novel by bestselling author Dean Hughes.
Years after his wife Kate (Melanie Nelson) died, Ned Stevens (Curt Doussett, Saints and Soldiers, The R.M.) still hates the idea of dating. After all, why would he start dating again when he has his daughter Liz (Brittany Peltier) to take care of? But when Liz brings a surprise home with her during a visit from college, Ned's world is turned upside-down.
Can Ned accept that his little girl is falling for David (Kirby Heyborne, The Best Two Years, The Singles Ward), a practically perfect know-it-all who drives Ned crazy? As Ned tries to sabotage the relationship, Liz diverts his attention to Carol (Michelle Money), the beautiful single woman Ned sees jogging every morning.
With Liz and David's help, Ned will learn that with love, there are always second chances.

It's unusual for movies to measure up to the books they're based on, but Dean Hughes gave Excel some excellent material to work with, and Excel lived up to their name on this one.
I purchased it the day it was released on DVD, and didn't regret it in the slightest. I watched it with my wife that night, and it was a great reminder of the love we share, and the fact that that love has the potential to last forever.
The acting was fabulous, the plot great, and the humour both clean and highly entertaining. I'd recommend this movie to anyone.

This is a good, clean film that everyone in the family can watch without being embarrassed by inappropriate content.

To compare with other LDS movies...
I thought it was better than Baptists At Our Barbeque, and Home Teachers. But I don't think it was quite up there with the total classics like Best 2 Years, Charly, and Johnny Lingo.
It's not my favorite, but the whole movie is 100% clean, and definitely has its good moments.
