The movie is too amateurishly square to make the most of its own ironic implications.

Top Critic

A competent but self-righteous film that offers little insight into love or faith.

September 6, 2003
Las Vegas Weekly

If religious films aren't your bailiwick, stay away. Otherwise, this could be a passable date film.

Arizona Daily Star

The film is old-fashioned, occasionally charming and as subtle as boldface.

Beers, who, when she's given the right lines, can charm the paint off the wall ... [but] the script goes wrong at several key junctures.

This show is great! It is hilarious and then very very sad. I just watched it today and vowed that I would not cry.......well so much for that. I sobbed. For anyone who liked a romance,comedy,cry movie this is the one!

Kristen Millsap

A bit sappy at times, and cinematically a bit amateur, but this is a timeless story of love and how true love transcends differences and life itself.
