Father Stu was so much more than I was expecting. Mark Wahlberg really nailed it. I could feel his pain and suffering and the faith that he developed. The transition that his character goes through is remarkable.
This was based on a true story, my heart goes out to this guy. At every attempt of doing the right thing, he is struck down with another obstacle again and again. Through his perseverance and faith, he still kept trying. He never quit, even when his body was quitting on him.
Anyone that needs help being strong and courageous should totally watch this movie. Anyone that is feeling beat down by life should totally watch this movie. It was very well done and had an amazing cast. Everyone shined in their own way.
My only negative thing to say is that it was quite long. It did kind of dip for a bit but they picked it back up and finished strong. Hmmm, that kind of sounds like a description of Father Stu.
I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did.
About The Peetimes: I’ve got the Peetimes spread out enough to get you through the movie. The 2nd Peetime is traumatic so I’m definitely going to recommend that one.

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Androidor iPhone) when you go to the movies.

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
