I have to agree with some of the reviews I read. This did not seem at all like a Christian movie until the end when he talked about God. I am going to throw this in the trash. Sure wish I would have read these reviews first.
Very disappointed with this film! I bought it at a Christian book store to have a family movie night. Good thing I previewed! Drunkenness, scantily clad women... seriously? ! I thought with Rebecca St. James in it that it would be clean. Very, very disappointed.
Scenes with a clear presentation of the Gospel? None.
For those who can form an opinion of a film based on this checklist, I highly recommend steering clear of this movie. If however what you are looking for in a film is a well-written story, entertaining dialog, and a satisfying payoff with a few surprises, you might want to give this one a spin. If you particularly enjoy stories of compassion, wonder and spiritual discovery then this film was probably made for you. It is a fun-spirited romantic comedy that along the way becomes one of the more unique films I've seen about God's creativity and passion for each of us. It's also great conversation-starter to watch with friends who tend to steer clear of films that meet the criteria of the above checklist.
I also would not consider this a Christian movie. No mention of Christ. "God in you" speak used heavily toward end. Celebration of human beings, not of redemptive life. It is reflective of this pervasive notion creeping into Evangelical thought that we don't need a Saviour - God loves us as we are. Some funny clips - only strength. Overall, not a solid use of 2 hours of my time.
