The Prayer Circle
5 February 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

As a non-believer as opposed to an anti-believer and there is a huge difference I've reviewed any number of Christian based films and I've judged them accordingly. Some are better than others overall, some are more subtle than others and some are just downright bad. But when I saw that a Christian movie reviewer trashed Unexpected Places my expectations were low and I wasn't disappointed.

Penny Carlisi both wrote and played the lead. She's a Christian mom who married a Christian guy who probably didn't want to married to the church lady and they split because he cheated on her. He also wanted to split the custody of their two boys, but she made sure that didn't happen.

Now she has a second husband and they're happy and the boys are now played by Chad Gibbons and Tim Turok. Gibbons is living without benefit of clergy with Robin McCoy and they have a kid. Turok is a total screw up who is continually in trouble with the law. She's also got problems at work.

Nevertheless her main occupation is that prayer group from church which consists of a bunch of other church wives who tell each other their troubles and then commune with the Lord. Of course it all works out in a roundabout way as per these films.

The acting and the directing were atrocious. I've seen better in college plays, even at the high school level. Nobody gives any kind of believable performance.

When a Christian reviewer trashes it you know it's bad.
