Boring, Shallow and Corny Religious Propaganda
10 July 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While eating hot-dog in a square, Dan (Thom Mathews) hits on the gorgeous Sue (Megan Gallivan) and six months later he intends to propose her. However he feels affected by his relationship with his father and yellow in front of her parents. He writes a letter to his father exposing his troubled childhood after her left his family and how his life was affected by his divorce.

I have just lost 83 minutes of my life watching this film, actually a boring, shallow and corny religious propaganda of moral values. The acting is not bad but the screenplay is awful. My vote is one.

Title (Brazil): "Uma Carta ao Pai" ("A Letter to Dad")
