Bible banging claptrap
Verified purchase
I'm getting really annoyed with these movies that are sold as mainstream when really they have a Christian agenda. You know, I have nothing against Christian movies. They are their own genre, just like any other kind of movie. But I'm not interested. It really makes me angry that they're sneaking in the brainwashing that comes from describing the movie as a "comedy" or a "romance" or whatever, when all of that is just trappings for the bigger agenda of selling the myth of Jesus to the public. I'm just as annoyed when a serious drama is sold as a light comedy. And I'd be very upset if a movie sold as a human-interest drama turned out to be horror. I'm not interested in the Christian myth-- I don't want to watch it, and I certainly don't want to pay for it. Yet more and more of these religious film are being lined up like they're just another family movie. Doesn't it make you wonder about a whole theory that has to disguise itself in order to reach people? Isn't that what the Bible says Satan does?

Disappointing
Verified purchase
Somehow this "Rom-Com" got labeled a "church" movie by all the 5 star reviews. It probably needs to be clarified that this is actually a "social club" that apparently meets in a church building. The writers clearly must have studied from a social club handbook, because clearly nothing here is actually Biblical. Unless they intended mockery on church. But why would they want to do that?

If you are looking for just a regular clean movie, then watch it

If you are just looking for a cute, clean, secular movie, then this is it. It was cute and funny, and had a good storyline (the main character finding Jesus and changing). But the story was definitely told from a secular perspective, and the whole idea of the pastor dating a married non-believer (who is getting a divorce) is so far out there. I could have swallowed it a little better if it was just a church member, but even then I feel this movie gave the wrong idea that we should date unequally yolked when we should run the other way. If you just want a cute movie, go for it, but I thought it was a Christian based movie and it wasn't so I was a bit disappointed about how the Christians in the movie were portrayed wrongly and as awful people.

Actually, it's 91 percent. What I'll add to the other reviews is there are some one star reviews and they're usually from judgemental Christians that wanted a movie more like them. Sorry, this was a movie mainly about the complicated lives of people who genuinely love each other and who happen to be real Christians. You know, the ones who typically attend imperfect church's. It's real. Not sappy. It's funny. It's also heartbreaking at times. There are some messages for those with open minds. I don't write a lot of reviews. But I had to with this amazing film that I just read was made for about $600,000. You wouldn't know that by looking at it. My wife and I loved this movie. I hope you do too.

Nicely done. A step above so many of the corny, cliché romantic comedies being made now.

This is an inspiration-based film, but not in a heavy handed way. It's so nice to see some faces that we all love from pre-streaming days, like Marilu Henner and Corbin Bernsen. No one is perfect, not even the minister, and the 'bad guy' in the film is so unlikeable that you'll cheer when he ..... well, you'll see. Even if you're not into the spiritual aspect of the film, it's still a good, clean film with an interesting storyline and multi-layered plot, excellent writing and casting, and nice finish. Thank you, producer Corbin Bernsen, for making a good, clean film happen! We need more of them, please!

Wonderful Surprise
Verified purchase
It is cleverly funny in all the right spots and super genuine as well. The lead female recently discovered her husband has cheated and the assumption is, it may not be the first time. There is a death in her extended family, so she tries to navigate that during her divorce and discovers where her faith fits in. This is not a straight forward faith based movie, but a witty and sometimes cheeky take on what it means to 'believe' and what that means to each person.

This movie has made it onto my "personal favorites" list. I decided to watch it, not really knowing, but suspicious, that it might be a "faith based" movie. I don't often view such movies because of having seen several in the past that I thought were decidedly of poor quality, and had scenes where I felt preached at. I am a believer, but don't try to cram Scripture "down my throat". I feel very comfortable with how Jesus love and care is depicted in this movie. The different characters on the committee were in many ways representative of folks that I have met along the way. I esp. love Eddie, and his optimistic "attendance is up" attitude. The struggles with acceptance and grief are real. I have re-watched the movie many times.

A sneaky trick - it's a Christian movie but not billed as one
Verified purchase
This movie is pure sap. Badly acted, written and directed. I felt like watching something light so I persevered although several times I felt like shutting it off. The acting, the script are exaggerated, clichéd and predictable. People don't talk or act like that in real life.
I clearly didn't like the movie, but the thing I disliked the MOST was when a heavy-handed Christian theme developed. Amazon did not categorize this as a Christian movie - and this is not the first time that's happened. Because of a recent similar bad surprise with a movie, in addition to glancing at the Amazon reviews, I usually google and read professional reviews.
