Synopsis

Based on Edith Iglauer’s autobiography, “Fishing With John,” the film chronicles the story of an unlikely romance between a cosmopolitan career woman and a small town fisherman.
When sophisticated New York journalist Edith Iglauer (Jaclyn Smith) is assigned to go to British Columbia to write a frivolous piece on the fishing industry, she butts heads with local fisherman and notorious loner John Daly (Tim Matheson). While she thrives on the fast-paced life of Manhattan, he loathes pretension and could go days without speaking to anyone. But when the two are caught in a perilous situation, they are forced to put aside their pettiness and re-examine their lives. With the external factors stripped away, they begin to fall in love.
First airs on Lifetime Monday, February 14 from 9-11 p.m. ET/PT.

Dove Review

Content Description

The screenplay is peppered with expletives and mild obscenities; it is implied that the leads sleep together; there is some drinking. Although there are several discussions concerning faith and a relationship with God, including a prayer where the male lead thanks God and asks that we won’t take His creation for granted, we are unable to recommend it for family viewing due to the premarital sexual relationship. We do this without attempting to be pious or judgmental. We are simply concerned that society is being inundated by entertainment that seems to ignore Biblical teaching concerning this area of life.
