Also starring Neil Flynn (The Middle), D.B. Sweeney (The Cutting Edge) and WWE legend Shawn Michaels.

This is definitely a movie made by cChristians to entertain other Christians. They get so much of church culture right. Most of the laughs in the movie come from that aspect of the story. But I'm not sure how appealing the movie would be to someone who doesn't have that background.
Still, the movie is well made. The story is well told and well acted. It did exactly what I expected it to do, and it did it well.
Such a wonderfully common occurrence of a life transformed by the community of the Saints and faith in Jesus Christ. That the chief actor is one more publicly known for the portrayal of evil, while it was almost enough to turn me away I would have to say it actually was also that which drew me in to a degree. The desire to see others come to the knowledge of repentance being so strong, for one who has himself been forgiven much, it is always a delight to see others turn to Christ, beyond words.
I highly recommend the movie and hope to see the actors continuing to give of their talent and skill to the exaltation of Jesus Christ and the furthering of the Kingdom of Heaven.
This is just a good movie, period. While I tend to like films like "Magnolia" or "Heat" rather than light comedies, this one got to me. At first it seems to be kind of a slightly subversive Hallmark/fluff movie, but it's really just masquerading as that. It's very low-key (but very funny), and actually takes the time to let you get to know and care about the characters. Then it hammers you. I was really impacted by it, and it lingered in my thoughts for weeks.
