Jeremy Sisto is fantastic as a priest who may not believe in all of the church's rules but personifies its better aspects of love, sacrifice and charity. Kristin Chenoweth shows a touching serious side and major league acting chops in a role with relatively few spoken lines but an unforgettable presence. Brian Baumgartner is comic relief as a priest in a prosperous suburban church who is "taken care of in the manner in which he is accustomed". Mr. Baumgartner is able to use his comic improv talents which are often supressed in his usual gig on "The Office".
I highly recommend this movie.
There are basically two main parallel story lines, as John's harried attempts to find Linda plays alongside Linda's methodical approach to her birthday and its significance. John's search for Linda is tinged with humor as he finds himself exploring some rather dubious areas, such as the red light district and a porn establishment. This predictably lands him in trouble with the Archbishop, and his one ally in the church is another priest, Fr Ralph (Brain Baumgartner) from a more affluent parish. John's relationship with his fellow parishioners are also explored, especially with a jobless African American man who is enlisted in the search efforts for Linda. Both Jeremy Sisto and Kristin Chenoweth bring a measure of depth and credibility to their respective roles and the rest of the cast are also well-played.Read more ›
