What's annoying in this otherwise well-meaning movie is how the barbs become a kind of armor against real feeling, and the bland direction offers nothing.
Mr. Spicer's earnest performance bolsters many of the weaker spots in Mr. Shoulberg's script.
It's a small film in every way, but I found it riveting.
A man of the cloth facing a crisis of faith, particularly one provoked by an attractive woman, covers some well-trod dramatic territory and the director doesn't do much to update this borderline biblical scenario.
The story is very plain and without any type of audiovisual discourse and feels more like a telefilm. [Full Review in Spanish]
Thankfully there's a somewhat compelling story here for you.
A reviewer should never assess a movie for what it is not, but this viewer was not sure for a long time what exactly "The Good Catholic" was.
A young Catholic priest questions his vocation in Paul Shoulberg's earnest but overly schematic and ultimately ineffectual comedy-drama [that] never really rings true.
... deliberately paced drama that likely won't generate much interest beyond the faithful.
Romantic dramedy about young priest has strong language.
[Writer/director Paul Shoulberg] never shies away from the religious aspects of the story but at the same time gives the film enough air from outside the church to give the tale wider appeal.
Despite The Good Catholic's interesting macro approach compared to other films of its ilk, it's far less successful on a micro level.
