good flick; ever heard of it?
18 October 2002 | by (Overland Park, Kansas (Scott Kirsch)) – See all my reviews

I must admit that my main reason for doing a comment on this film is that there aren't already 200 about it. I haven't seen this movie in forever and am not sure how my family ever heard of it. But I remember it as a very sweet and sincere little movie about a pope putting his money where his mouth is, getting off his high horse and actually helping those that need it. The movie is funny along the way but, more importantly makes you really think about what you believe in and, once you decide, how that should affect the way you live your life.
