Scully works as a staff physician at a Catholic hospital. Her focus these days is on a young boy with an incurable brain disease. Administration wants to give up on him. Scully, who feels a special bond with the boy, does not. Meanwhile, Mulder's focus is on clipping newspaper articles, throwing pencils into his ceiling and writing about the paranormal.

The television show upon which this movie is based filmed its first 5 seasons in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It often used local Canadian actors in guest and secondary roles, reusing the same actors in different parts in multiple episodes. For example, Alex Diakun, Lorena Gale, and Stephen E. Miller each appeared as different characters in three episodes; Miller also appeared in the pilot. Sarah-Jane Redmond, Stacee Copeland, and Callum Keith Rennie each appeared as different characters in two episodes. Rennie was also the original choice to play the long-running character Alex Krycek. Production moved to Los Angeles for seasons 6-9. The film was shot in Vancouver, and producers recast many of the same actors they had used so often on the show. Several other secondary and tertiary movie cast members had also appeared on the show as other characters. See more »

Don't give up.
[he pauses as he follows Scully to her car]
Why would he say such a thing to you?
I think that was clearly meant for you, Mulder.
He didn't say it to me; he said it to you.
If Father Joe were the devil, why would he say the opposite of what the devil might say?
[she doesn't reply, though clearly attempting to rationalize]
Maybe that's the answer, in a larger answer.
What do you mean?

Before I went to see this movie, I had seen 3 episodes of the TV show, despite having grown up with the series. One episode I saw when I was 9, and 2 just this week, when I decided to try the show out to see if I liked it. The first two episodes drew me in, and even though I thought I would be confused by the movie, I went to see it anyway.
Needless to say, I was not confused that much at all. The story was great, and I found myself drawn right into the characters despite not having seen much of their interaction previously. There was enough action and suspense to keep the story moving, and everyone in the cinema seemed to enjoy it.
When I left the cinema, all I wanted to do was go home and watch more episodes of the TV show, which was probably the intention of the producers of the film; to draw interest back into the series, which is what they achieved.
So, for me, as someone who hadn't watched the television show, I enjoyed the movie, as did my sister who had never seen an episode in her life. I definitely recommend it! Two thumbs up!
