The audience, on opening night (my guess is these are faithful church goers), REALLY enjoyed this film. They laughed a lot and shouted out the big lines and seemed to have a roaring good time.

John Corbett gave an enjoyable performance, a nice treat for fans of his since the days of Northern Exposure, Sex and the City, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and The United States of Tara (to name some of his biggest roles in an admittedly huge filmography).

The production values were high, and the soundtrack/direction/storytelling were certainly adequate. For a religious or conservative family, this film equals a nice night out for the family. The message is sound, no matter what side of the fence your views fall on.
