From storytelling and moviemaking standpoints, “Old Fashioned” has some weaknesses, but it is good enough to convey its message. In my opinion, if marriage is under consideration, the theological differences between them could have more implications for compatibility than many things that Clay questions her about. There is also a somewhat-humorous suggestion that a person may be gay. Language: Three “Good Lord” exclamations and one “God forbid,” one use of “cr*p,” and a few instances of name-calling (stupid, idiot).
Courtship is an old-fashioned word, assuming that two people who love each other will eventually get married.
If your uncle and aunt only met a few weeks before their wedding, you can say they had a brief courtship — and if you have friends who aren't married but have been together for years, you could describe their decades-long courtship.
Amber feels that Clay’s views are too restrictive, but she is willing to comply and begin a courtship with him.
Though Clay is now a devoted Christian, he was formerly a wild fraternity guy, and believes that sexual temptation can be powerful enough to warrant strict personal rules, such as refusing to be alone with a woman on private property.
All things considered, this is a nice movie that I would recommend for those who like romance films.
Considering the screen time, the plot would be stronger if it had more events, but the movie can probably keep audiences engaged due to Amber’s and Clay’s interactions.

Answer What are the consequences of sexual immorality? Violence: A scene of physical aggression between characters. Other: A radio show has some sexist broadcasts, but the movie portrays this negatively.
The characters of Clay and Amber are somewhat lacking in depth, but their initially-stereotypical personalities do round out some by the end.
