Movie Info

Sam (Alex Russell) stands on stage as thousands of fans go wild. Smart, charismatic, handsome, he moves them with his message, and when he calls for donations to his charity, the money pours in. Only thing is, Sam doesn't believe a word he's saying. Just months earlier, Sam was a typical college senior focused on keg stands, hookups and graduation. But when a surprise tuition bill threatens his dream of law school and leaves him thousands of dollars in the hole, he's forced to think outside the box. Convincing his three roommates they can make a killing exploiting the gullible church crowd, the guys start a sham charity and begin campaigning across the country, raising funds for a cause as fake as their message. For Sam, embezzling money is easy compared to getting attention from the person he cares about the most. When Callie (Johanna Braddy), the tour manager and Sam's love interest, finally uncovers the guys' ruse, it's Sam's moment of truth. On the final night of the tour, before a packed auditorium but alone in the spotlight, it's time for Sam to decide what he really believes.(c) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Believe Me

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (2)

A smart, sly comedy about what its director, Will Bakke, calls "the power of platforms," "Believe Me" parodies the machinery of faith-based fund-raising with its heart on its sleeve and its jokes above the belt.

The movie loses its zip as it becomes more dramatic ...

The screenplay is lacking in conviction from any angle.

The modest intrigue of the story is how it will all be resolved.

October 12, 2014 | Full Review…

The intentions of Believe Me are admirable. The execution, though, is unconvincing and not especially funny.

October 11, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The balancing act they manage in poking fun at evangelical culture ... while not blatantly mocking organized religion and, more importantly, people's faith, is impressive
