Church People is a comedic story that highlights the gimmicks being used by some mega churches or individuals to attract attention in the name of preaching the gospel. While the story is essentially serious, tucked in the right places are the comedic effects and lovable (but cliché) characters. Though the story is pretty much predictable, the theme, though, is unique in the sense that it’s not common in this genre, and execution was near perfect. It was engaging start to finish, and the actors gave just he right amount to delight—never too light, never too heavy.
It was interesting to note that there were multiple lessons to be learned, but none of it came off as preachy, but rather, well-delivered parts of the plot.
Church people is a lovely choice if you’re in search of a movie with a serious theme delivered in a lighter mode in a fun and hilarious way.
*Though I offer this review to the public, it’s my opinion and simply that. My appreciation to Collide Distribution for a free screener in exchange for my honest opinion.
