I promise, this is just a great family movie, with something for every viewer!
9 September 2014 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Will Duncan (Scott Christopher) has been in love with Annie (Jennifer Capo) for quite awhile. Yet, this man, a science teacher at the local junior high, has failed to convince the lady's father that he is good marriage material. In part, this is because Will has little money and Annie is the daughter of a successful businessman. Will did go to college and get a decent job. But, now Daddy Bucks asks Will to save a million pennies, that is, TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS before Annie can buy her wedding dress. Unknown to the couple, Daddy has his heart set on another man winning Annie's affections, business exec George, who is a royal pain. Annie doesn't like him. But, she longs to get married so will she get tired of waiting? Let's hope not! Will makes a list of extra jobs he can do to raise money, including dog walking, delivering papers, car washing. Yet, at this critical moment, George manages to get Will suspended from his job. Now how will he add to his bank account? Could there be a solution? Meanwhile, another family is suffering, too. The father has had a stroke and the large amount of money he had saved at home (no trusting of banks) stays hidden, for the man can't talk. This makes the wife desperate for cash. Could these two story lines, plus another of Annie's younger brother wanting to join the cool gang at school, all cross paths? You bet! I PROMISE YOU, this is a delightful film! Its funny, with quite a lot of physical humor, such as the moment Will gets his tie stuck in the garbage disposal! Its also charming and family friendly, with no words or scenes that would offend those who like good, clean movies. Then, too, the cast is great, with Christopher and Capo making a lovely couple and the supporting cast very capable. Viewers will also admire Annie's costumes, for she looks gorgeous without any revealing, tight outfits. Scenery, too, is sunny and green. Do look high and low for Penny Promise. It probably won't cost a million pennies but will be rewarding at any reasonable price.
