bland Christian movie
21 October 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Gavin Stone (Brett Dalton) is a former child star who has crashed and burned. He has to reconnect with his father (Neil Flynn). He does 200 hours of community service at a local church run by pastor Allan Richardson (D.B. Sweeney). Kelly Richardson (Anjelah Johnson-Reyes) is organizing their annual Passion Play and Gavin talks his way into playing Jesus while pretending to be a faithful Christian.

It's a Christian film. It's trying to be a comedy but it lacks good jokes. Dalton is believable as a selfish Hollywood type but not believable in a comedy. On the plus side, it doesn't offend anyone unless you're a self-obsessed Hollywood type. It's perfectly nice. It's also perfectly bland. The funniest bit has Kelly mentioning something about a Hallmark movie. It's so meta that it's almost not a joke. It's Christian and it's bland.
