Happily Surprised!
18 January 2017 | by mindyr-70476See all my reviews

I will be the first to admit that often movies in the Christian genre are cheesy, outdated, heavy, and, honestly, a bit embarrassing for the Christian community. I was delighted to see that The Resurrection of Gavin Stone has broken the previous mold. I appreciate that there are characters designed to basically poke fun of the Christian stereotypes (guess what? We get it. Most people outside of our community think we are lame. That's OK). This movie addresses those stereotypes directly in a lighthearted way in a broader communication to showcase the acceptance and welcoming community that a church can be. Not everyone has that experience at a church every time, but to showcase the example of what it should and could look like is beautifully done. The skepticism and acceptance of people brought on both sides of Christian characters and non-Christian characters is spot on. Overall, this is lighthearted, an excellent story of finding one's way in life, and ultimate acceptance of who people are and where they are in life. I will be seeing it again.
