Even having God on the production team can't save this 'Church Girl' from its heavy-handed sermonizing.
For myself and most folks expecting a movie, it is too transparent an infomercial for the church to move the mountain.
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.
Perhaps the problem with this work is it's trying very hard to make faith sexier than the Scarface lifestyle.
Solid performances by Ja Rule and Adrienne Bailon combine with an inspirational story to make an enjoyable film.
You won't believe a second of it.
To call the acting amateurish does a disservice to hard-working amateurs everywhere.
Drug dealer's conversion story appeals to faith audiences.
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.
