Critic Reviews for Leap of Faith
Martin gives a multi-layered performance
Comic Steve Martin gives an underappreciated dramatic performance as a phony preacher man. Among his best work.
Miracles cannot be summoned by command, they happen spontaneously by grace, and often to those who least expect them.
I actually walked out of this one...bad!
An underrated drama, highlighted by Martin's flamboyant performance.
I believe - that this movie is pretty funny.
Audience Reviews for Leap of Faith
Predictable from the first minutes. The story's to blame here. Martin is good as a bogus preacher but is given nowhere to go.More
I like most Steve Martin movies. This one was fun enough with him as a faith healer stuck in a small town. I enjoyed it. There was comedy, drama and a bit of romance. A successful premise.More
