'religious' screwball comedy thriller
19 October 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

The thriller storyline which involves the blackmail and kidnapping of a Catholic bishop, turned me off at first, but after 5 minutes watching, I realized I was in for a very comic film. A young priest, turned into detective, asks the help of his cop father to find these aforementioned kidnappers, and both get a sly female journalist involved during their search. The chemistry between these three characters sparks off the screen. The dialogue is spiked with sarcastic social comments on the catholic church, religion, the police machinery and the media, as well as more lightweight comedy. There are also more personal story lines which bring warmth into the whole thing. One of the funniest scenes is the blind date the cop father has, and the pseudo-macho banter between this same cop and his partner. Hats off for the scriptwriter. This film could have been a great pilot, for a spin off series which sees the trio of priest, cop and journalist team up time and time again to solve new crimes. A bit like a Father Dowling and Sister Steve for the naughties.
