A hedonistic college student poses as a pious televangelist to pay off his tuition, but experiences an acute crisis of conscience when the one girl he truly cares for catches wind of the shady ruse. Sam (Alex Russell) was a student with a scholarship, and not a care in the world when he learned that his financial grant had finally dried up. Desperate to get to law school by any means necessary, he conspires with his three resourceful roommates to start a sham Christian charity, and milk the naive churchgoers for all they're worth. Their plan works like a charm, too; before long Sam and his pals are on a nationwide tour, raking in cash by the barrel. Just when it looks like Sam will have more than enough to pay the bills, however, he starts to fall for his pretty tour manager Callie (Johanna Braddy). When Callie learns that Sam is a fraud his whole future flashes before his eyes, forcing him to make a crucial decision just when it looked like his entire plan was foolproof..
Nick Offerman spontaneously signed onto the film after the crew found out that he was in Dallas the same day that they were filming the "admissions counselor" scene. His scenes were filmed in a few hours and they parted ways after. See more »

Smartest movie ever-Created a new genre
This movie was very well written and directed. It doesn't tell you what to think, but leaves you thinking.
The trailer may cause you to think it is anti-Christian, but it is not. Lecrae is in it (#1 Christian Hip Hop Artist). On the other hand, some people are calling it a Christian film, but it is not (no alter call or come to Jesus moment).
Other reviews- NY Times -"a smart, sly comedy...about the power of platforms".
Indiewire -" Will Bakke has crafted a hilariously smart religious satire".
Movieguide - "Christian satire done right".
Beliefnet- "Believe Me hits the right notes".
Be prepared to laugh out loud and have a good time.
Best to watch with a clear head as there are tons of little jokes that you might need to watch more than once to catch them all!
