The Penny Promise

A good-hearted but klutzy young teacher wants to marry a rich man's daughter, but the father won't consent until the teacher can save $10,000. Produced by Feature Films for Families, which promises movies that "strengthen positive values," this competently made but convoluted video is uplifting but manipulative, moving but ultimately sappy. The plot twists seem calculated to make moral points, and the humor mostly falls flat. Tim Nelson and T.C. Christensen directed. 90 min.
