One day, one moment, one idea can change lives. Noah Davis is a Pastor in an affluent community. Depressed after losing his wife to illness, he is contacted by an old friend who has opened a mission in a rough inner city neighborhood. With Christmas approaching, he packs up and together with his two daughters, moves into Salvation Street Mission. Now the family must struggle with the challenges they face in the crime ridden community. Noah's inspiration guides his daughters, the mission and the neighborhood by bringing them the greatest gift of all, hope.
So, I'm Christian. Now I know a lot of Christian movies have come out in recent years that have not had a good critical or audience rating. But I am surprised this one has been overlooked. Now, I know this movie wasn't released in theaters. It was just like a Netflix or straight-to-DVD release. But you would think with this movie's sheer stupidity, word would have spread around. But since no one else is spreading the word, I will. Basically, this movie is stupid, but it is funny. Just watch it, I assure you that you will have a good time. The father's motivation is so stupid that his daughter points it out at the beginning of the movie. When the family is asked to bring the house up to standards to pass inspection in order for them to adopt a child, they have a montage of them cleaning. The thing is, the house was already clean as a whistle before they started! There's no work for you people to do! Your house is fine! And in another incident, two kids, a girl and a boy, steal candy from a convenience store. And later, the girl is holding the bag of stolen candy alongside the boy. And when the father asks the girl, who is his daughter, if they stole the candy, she says "No, we didn't steal it, we've just been eating it all day." Yeah, you read that right. It is such a stupid statement, I... just.... I don't even.... Well, anyway, just go watch the movie and see. It's terrible. It's kind of racist. It makes Christians look like idiots. It makes everyone look like idiots. And, it makes the filmmakers look like idiots, which is the biggest offense. Production values are OK though.
