Shockingly Anti-Semetic
26 July 2015 | by dharper-24883See all my reviews

As a Jew, I was so offended that I had to laugh. But after thinking about this film's message I found myself compelled to write a review. If you are an evangelical Christian who wants to hear what you want to hear, by all means you will enjoy this very much and give it a 8+ (but you'll have to admit some of the acting is pretty bad especially the overacting of the Jewish father). If you are Jewish, steer clear! This is propaganda made to encourage evangelical missionaries. The film stereotypes Jews, using Jewish symbols in offensive ways, and promotes anti-Semitic thinking. If such a film were made about any other minority, people would demand its removal: think Disney's Song of the South. I give it a 2 because its only redeeming value is that it might serve as an example to Jews and others that anti-Semitism is alive and well.
