Family friendly message
25 January 2014 | by (CA, United States) – See all my reviews

**Possible Spoiler Alert** Some reviews say this movie stinks... that the characters are flat, etc. However, what I think is that this movie is like an "Unplugged" album in music. It is stripped down intentionally to get the message to the viewer.

I think it is really FUNNY how many negative - I mean RABID REVIEWERS - have submitted their tantrums in lieu of a review of this movie. What the movie is about is disclosed in the movie description. GROW UP - Jesus still loves you no matter what you say about him.

They are like the real-life Officer Deville from the movie. Trying to keep others away from the simple, family friendly message shared in this movie.

I personally loved this movie. Quiet, simple, and straightforward. Love Marchiano's performance.
