User Reviews

Gentle christian humor...
17 January 2002 | by initySee all my reviews

This movie is one of my great favorites. I admire the story, first; I admire wonderful text and phrases and use to quote them; but, what is the most important about this movie, it's really an example of GOOD, nice and gentle, Christian humor. All little miracles in this movie can be considered fun and miracles in the same time. I loved the atmosphere of the movie, and the characters, and again and again, this gentle humor, so you can laugh and think about belief things... This movie I wouldn't recommend to those who refuse all christianity-related jokes. They would barely understand it... otherwise, it's nice, it's warm, it's what I call "good movie".
