Trivia

As the characters are leaving the diner, one can read on the door "Breakfast Served Anytime". This is a neat reference to the food (analogous to salvation by His grace) that Jesus had offered to all the strangers in the diner. If the strangers accepted the food, they would have broken their (spiritual) fast. See more »

Goofs

The first policeman's shoulder patch reads, "Metropolitan Police," but he is driving a "Highway Patrol" car. See more »

Quotes

Melissa: The state trooper down the road said you guys were closed.
Jesus: Yeah, he's been trying to keep people away from me for years. It's a personal thing.

Good Christian Movie
17 September 2011 | by marhubaSee all my reviews

This movie was better than I expected after looking at the reviews and the message it told was one that we all need to hear. It really touched me, and I think it will you too! Too many times people do not hear the call of God or see how he is working in their life, but this movie serves as a good reminder of that. This movie tells a message many people need to hear and I hope that after people see it they will share the message. To me it showed how Jesus is always reaching out to us and offering us the Love we are looking for and we only have to accept it and follow him. I will say that it seems like it was a low budget movie but I think they did the best they could with what they had and it worked.
