This movie has a plot line and story written for 10-14 year olds. Its perfect for them, and it could be a great family movie. Unfortunately the language is adult for no reason at all, and sporadically at best. There's no sex, and one scene of a very phony looking joint that was hardly needed to the story. They should have edited out the "R" parts and advertised it as a family movie. Its oriented that way.
Most of the actors were competent, no one really shined. You have trouble believing the 20yr old "foxy" reverend, but it's a nice twist. The soundtrack is pretty bland, as is the lip-syncing at the end of the movie. Its a movie with no market, too tame and sterilized for adults, but too adult for kids.
