So Disappointed
13 January 2017 | by wpbdocSee all my reviews

Was invited to an early screening of this movie and I had high hopes. They were dashed as I had to endure yet another cliché and formulaic faith-based movie that hit every stereotype known to mankind about Christians. I cringed so hard I thought I was going to pass out. It's about a church play and honestly, I've seen church plays that were better done. The story line was basically a re-warmed version of a Hallmark movie, the script was unimaginative and while it touted to be a comedy, I did not even crack a smile one single time. I did roll my eyes repeatedly. There has been a lot of online and social media promotion of this movie (thus, my opportunity to see this movie before release). That money would have been better spent on re-writing the script.

I want to be positive, but I have to be honest. This is one more cheesy example of why Christians are not respected in the artistic world. We can do better than this! And if we can't, then we should quit trying.
