Sweet, but a tad muddled.
14 February 2000 | by (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) – See all my reviews

While the idea is a good premice, the actualization of it is a tad muddled. St. John coming to Newfoundland to find 'hope' for humanity is about as lunatic as one can imagine, but where is fall-down humour in this film? It tries to be too nice, thereby killing the momentum of the comedy. While the acting is real and solid, the writing seems a little forced - as though it was re-written by a committee whose members all had different ideas as to what the script must impart to us. there is a strong case made for not believing in modern consumerism using Jesus overthrowing the money changers as a model; but it's used twice, therefore reducing the impact. St. John performs miracles and points out that people will not believe, but this is not followed as a theme more than simply introducing it. A good effort, but not worth the effort of seeing it again, or rushing to see it, as is not as full as it could be, or as multi-layered as it ought to be, given what it's supposed to be.
