  1. I found this film to be uplifting and better the second time I saw it. I have a feeling it will be a huge rental hit. People are still afraid of theaters.

    1. That is ridiculous you know it’s a movie about the catholic religion how could that offend you 😂😂

  2. My wife and I saw the movie and felt it was a great, true faith story that showed that God is truly alive today by changing a man who was a total atheist and immoral to becoming not only a Christian but moreover an “on fire” Catholic priest who transformed many peoples lives including his only family of non-believers. The film had great value for us Christians and non -believers alike! God is alive and well!!

    1. I think you missed the point. He was never immoral. Fair to say he found his path later in life but I don’t think the fact he was not religious and used foul language made him immoral. It’s not like it’s a story of a rapist / murderor changing their ways.

  3. Loved the movie, loved the story. I too had to see it twice to truly appreciate. I plan to see it a 3rd time. I thought all 3 main actors did a great job portraying the Long family. Thanks Mark for making this movie! No gun fights, gangsters, high speed car chases etc..LOL!

  4. Mark Wahlberg puts forth an Oscar winning performance. An awe inspiring true story that incorporated and introduced Catholic beliefs and values to the general public. Great work for Marky, Father Stu, Catholics, and humanity!!!

    Marky keep it up my Bosto. Brothah!!!!

  5. Great movie! The F bombs were part of Young Stu and the anger toward his earth father was very raw but ALL led to God redemptive power. I will watch 5 more times….more comes out each time. Simple message – God loves us in all our imperfect ways.
