    The film is likable. Its messages, many of them Lord-oriented, are all equally heartfelt. show more

    The actors do what they can with the cards they're dealt but can't overcome the nakedness of the dialogue or the characters' actions. Duke does ensure that the production flows smoothly though. And those frequent injections of comedy do wonders. show more
