Well-intentioned but painfully poor script
26 September 2015 | by avocadessSee all my reviews

Although I'm a Christian and love to watch faith-based films, making myself watch this film all the way to the halfway mark was like pulling teeth. I kept hoping it would get better. I have liked Eric Roberts in every other movie I ever saw him in, but even he was not enjoyable to watch in this film.

I kept asking myself: Is it poor acting? For a while I thought it was that. But then when I paid more attention to the dialogue I became convinced that the problem was in the script. No matter how good actors are, they can't make a poorly written script flow.

This was written as if it were for Mr. Roger's Neighborhood. I might have been able to handle it if it were Barney or Bullwinkle or something, but this one just wouldn't float. Apologies to anyone whose feelings might be hurt by this review. I do respect what you were trying to accomplish, and I doubt I could do a better job than you, but got to be honest here. So painful to watch I just couldn't even finish the film.
