Saint Ralph Reviews

Film Scouts

The heart of the film and ensemble, however, is Adam Butcher. If there's any justice, this guy could have a hell of a career. Highly recommended.

What writer-director Michael McGowan has pulled off is a bit of a miracle.

For the jaded moviegoer, here's a little film that just might restore your faith -- in movies and a whole lot more.

Fantastica Daily

A likable little underdog-triumphs drama from Canada... This is a case where my idealistic side won out over my cynical side.

Butcher carries the film well, interpreting Ralph as a tangle of mixed-up yearnings tempered with an indomitable drive.

Jeff Vice
Deseret News, Salt Lake City

The comic aspects of this comedy-drama are overly broad and forced, while the supposedly dramatic ones are cloying and treacly.

Sean Means
Salt Lake Tribune

This wincingly earnest comedy-drama could rival the maple tree as Canada's leading producer of sap.

| Original Score: 2/4

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

A hooey-slathered film that combines the Catholic school humor of 'Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?' with the rah-rah uplift of an underdog sports story.

| Original Score: '1.5/4'

August 26, 2005
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

An overly convenient plot is the main con in Ralph, which includes a devastating fire, an assist from a celebrity and at least one miracle, all of which show up exactly when the plot needs help moving forward.

Canadian writer-director Michael McGowan has packed it so full of earnestness that viewers end up jogging along.

Ralph may be more a sinner than a saint, and his movie may be a little cheesy, but who cares - I thoroughly enjoyed following him on his quest.

Denton Record Chronicle (TX)

...a small, straightforward story that has its heart in the right place, even if its hokey sentimentality keeps it from reaching the finish line.

The movie rests on (Adam) Butcher, and the actor proves to be a well-rounded smart aleck in the making.

If McGowan pushes the religious themes too hard, his greatest sin is that he leads you to believe that the story is true.

It's all very cute and predictable. Still it's a fun movie...

Pushes itself as strenuously as its young protagonist, but ultimately collapses in a welter of sentiment, cuteness and whimsy.

McGowan's film demonstrates how sometimes the strongest acts of faith can only occur entirely outside the church.

Even when it's pushing the limits of shameless manipulation, this cheeky Canadian film has charm and wit.
