Don't let the few, immature people make you not see it......

If this film was made by someone else and did not include a positive message of faith, they would not be subject to the perversely extreme negativity against them. This may not be an Oscar-caliber film, but then, neither are many of the films of many Hollywood actors and directors. There are other less well-produced films, too, which audiences loved and critics panned, but you don't see the continued visceral hatred that you see directed at a film like Slamma Jamma. It all comes down to the faith message. That is ultimately what the film's detractors truly hate. To me, this film is one of the best of 2017. It was remarkably made. Don't let the few, immature people make you not see it.
