Movie Info

Filmed independently under the title Gas Station Jesus, this contemporary parable stars Lori Heuring as Maggie Tate, who finds herself pregnant by "miraculous conception." Miraculous or no, Maggie doesn't want to have the baby, but is pressured to do so by a group of threatening-looking Christian fundamentalists. She ends up stranded at a remote gas station with an enigmatic old preacher named Isaiah (Tucker Smallwood) and his equally strange son, who repeat the mantra that Maggie has absolutely no control over her future nor the future of her baby. A climactic chase and a second miracle provide any number of surprises for both our heroine and her pursuers. After a limited round of film-festival showings, Gas Station Jesus was brought to American cable television through the auspices of the Lifetime channel under the less provocative title Miracle Baby.

I know this was made by Lifetime Television, but even they have to have some standards, right?

Audience Reviews for Miracle Baby

Another movie I watched only for Clayne Crawford's involvement, but because he was a principle player, I had to endure the entire thing. It's not the worst thing I've seen, but it's not a good movie either. Lots of weird religious elements that almost skirt the Truth but distort it just as much. Thankfully, Crawford was better than I expected in this early film of his. Not recommended unless you, like me, are a fan of the players.
