Cars. Good looks. Mansions. Money. Women. Miles Montego has it all. Including a past. He was king of the streets as a high-level drug trafficker, and although he has tried to move on, the DEA isn't convinced. Miles is still rolling with his old friends and colleagues, and the feds are certain he has not fully retired from his criminal past. When Miles meets Vanessa Leon, a woman who is different than every other woman he's met, he is drawn to her beauty and her faith. She is a "church girl" in

Even having God on the production team can't save this 'Church Girl' from its heavy-handed sermonizing.
This overlong drama plays like a threefold infomercial: for Christianity, the cheesy resort chain Sandals and Jeff "Ja Rule" Atkins, the rapper-turned-actor playing drug kingpin Miles Montego.
A message film with the narrative sophistication of a recruiting pamphlet.
Suffers from the same ills as too many movies that preach to the choir: a laborious length, formulaic plot and dialogue and, disappointing for a film that stars a rapper, a stock score.
We're apparently supposed to root for these two to make it, although Vanessa is outlandishly jealous and pushy.
There is no reason a film with an agenda can't also be engaging or thought-provoking. But what we have here is not so much a movie as a blunt Sunday sermon.
Solid performances by Ja Rule and Adrienne Bailon combine with an inspirational story to make an enjoyable film.
To call the acting amateurish does a disservice to hard-working amateurs everywhere.
For a religion started by a martyred egalitarian hippie who hung out with lepers and prostitutes and was executed by The Man, these supposed adherents sure seem obsessed with Earthly wealth. Bad movie, but a fascinating watch.
For myself and most folks expecting a movie, it is too transparent an infomercial for the church to move the mountain.
It egregiously lacks subtlety and too often resorts to excessive sermonizing.
Screenwriter Galley Molina based the film on his own experience, going from drug pusher to minister, but, for all that, this cliche-besotted film feels somehow synthetic in the extreme.
