Movie Info

Jack Harriman (Billy Burke) lives a simple life and uses the religious expertise he learned from his mother (Adrienne Barbeau) to attract women. He becomes an instant spiritual celebrity after humiliating Reverend Guy Roy Davis (Gary Cole) on his friend's (Patrick Warburton) public-access TV show. Jack's popularity takes him on the road on a multi-city speaking tour accompanied by Nigel (Joel David Moore), a self-proclaimed "catcher" of overwhelmed believers. Along the way Jack and Nigel are joined by Amber (Dora Madison), a down on her luck call-girl, and Marian (Sarah Shahi), an enigmatic beauty who challenges Jack's beliefs and questions whether he has some deeper calling. Set in the South, it's a road movie, a buddy picture and an often sweet, thought-provoking story of redemption.

Critic Reviews for Divine Access

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

It isn't terribly exciting as a movie - director/co-writer Steven Chester Prince mistakes drab pacing as a stylistic match for the laconic charm of his lead actor - but the serious-minded humor has a probing sincerity that carries you along.

None of Jack's relationships are handled with enough conviction to make them stick, and that carries over to a religious message that's squishy in the extreme.

Top Critic

A sharp and funny satire about self-proclaimed spiritual gurus.

April 14, 2016 | Full Review…

Prince's film exhibits an understanding of the zeitgeist and the peculiar crystallization of ideas and trends that make this time in 21st century America so disquieting for so many.

Gary Cole talks through a "Mini Jesus" ventriloquist dummy in Divinity Access, which alone covers the price of admission.

May 18, 2016 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

"Divine Access" is most enjoyable keeping close to Burke, with the alternative being a somewhat silly story about fanaticism and jealousy that's difficult to take seriously.

Audience Reviews for Divine Access

What if Jesus was just some guy looking for the answers to life's big questions himself? What if he lives in modern times? What if he just decided to forget about the big questions and simply get laid as often as possible? And roll credits.
