FILM REVIEW: Church People

CHURCH PEOPLE is a nutty (in a good way) Christian comedy, paired with the underlying message of the power of the Gospel, and rediscovering your passion for Christ. It features Christian comedian Thor Ramsey, Stephen Baldwin, Donald Faison, and Joey Fatone.

Weary from the showiness and materialism that has overtaken his ministry efforts, Guy (Ramsey) goes on a journey to get back in touch with the heart of ministry and be a real role model to his youth group kids. He makes the difficult decision to cut short his speaking tour managed by his money-focused agent (Faison) after realizing his reputation had become more fame-based than Gospel-driven.

When Guy returns to regular youth ministry, he is asked to take part in a strange and potentially blasphemous stunt for the upcoming Easter service. Amid the somewhat chaotic life of managing his youth group, navigating an unexpected love interest, and being a new father to his grown daughter, Guy ultimately puts on a powerful presentation, sharing why we all need to put our hope in Jesus and not in ourselves. 

The film was surprisingly good. The humor and plot kept my interest, so I wanted to see it through to the end; and the end was the most meaningful part. It is geared towards the church (the true church - the people) and includes an important message about how "gimmicks" do not give the Gospel more substance. Safe and good for families to watch together.
