Storyline

A young Christian, Daniel (David A.R. White) is in public high school. He feels as if his religion is placing too many restrictions on him and he wishes to have some freedom from biblical teachings so that he can be more popular and go out with the girl he likes. One night Daniel wishes that he had "never become a believer," and the next day he has a rude awakening. His room is different, his house is dirty, and an angel meets him and explains to him that the "Heavenly Father" answered his prayer and now his life is as if he never became a Christian.

A Nice Try
23 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

As a Christian and 40-year veteran of the entertainment business, I'm well aware that up until recently, explicitly "Christian" movies were all "message" and little or no "medium." The Kendrick brothers, among others, are changing all that, but plenty of examples remain.

Like this one. Great message, but it's hard to overcome a generally weak cast and simplistic characterizations. Plus, the "Jesus, man!" tag has become something of a meme, and not for evangelical reasons either. LOL.

But the overreactions and misinterpretations from some on this message board are even lamer. Imagine, for instance, this "naomiwashburn" person trying to review "It's a Wonderful Life" (upon which this movie clearly was based, something that seems obvious to everyone but her). Solipsism isn't cute, nor is it witty. It's just sad.
