Happily Surprised!
 

I will be the first to admit that often movies in the Christian genre are cheesy, outdated, heavy, and, honestly, a bit embarrassing for the Christian community. I was delighted to see that The Resurrection of Gavin Stone has broken the previous mold. I appreciate that there are characters designed to basically poke fun of the Christian stereotypes (guess what? We get it. Most people outside of our community think we are lame. That's OK). This movie addresses those stereotypes directly in a lighthearted way in a broader communication to showcase the acceptance and welcoming community that a church can be. Not everyone has that experience at a church every time, but to showcase the example of what it should and could look like is beautifully done. The skepticism and acceptance of people brought on both sides of Christian characters and non-Christian characters is spot on. Overall, this is lighthearted, an excellent story of finding one's way in life, and ultimate acceptance of who people are and where they are in life. I will be seeing it again.

Feel Good Inspirational Drama. MUST SEE!
 

In Theaters on January 20th. Guaranteed you will laugh out loud, likely you will cry and cheer as well, as you get the opportunity to peer into a slice of life in this character driven comedy drama with broad appeal. The Resurrection of Gavin Stone is an exceptional script using a "fish out of water" story telling formula to effectively pull off the delicate balance of engaging and likable characters, anecdotal comedy and is sprinkled with sidesplitting humor. Brett Dalton is perfectly cast to play the role 'Gavin Stone' an arrogant self-centered childish man who runs into trouble with the law. Gavin Stone is an actor with tremendous talent, a 'has-been' child star. After his mom's death and endless string of indulgent partying left him out of the scene and off the screen for years. One "off the hook rager" lands Stone sentenced with 200 hours of state mandated community service hours to be served at local Masonville Bible Church. A party boy in a church lends itself to a hilarious string of missteps that make you laugh and still love seeing the changes in Gavin as he engages with the locals and eventually come to care about more than just himself. Stone gets out of mopping bathrooms by playing Jesus Christ in the Church's stage production. Three quirky characters, local church boys, come around Gavin to help him, and he in turn then helps them be better actors in the play. You will love these 3 amigos. John Mark - hilarious bible nerd with a heart of gold. Anthony – a wanna be actor and über Stone fan boy. And the most surprising character, Doug. Doug is a tough guy biker, dedicated to helping others in need, played convincingly by Shawn Michaels. At the same time, Gavin has a volatile relationship with his father (played by Neil Flynn) and a budding interest in Kelly (Anjelah Johnson-Reyes) the director of the play, who by the way is the Pastors Daughter. This movie may be categorized in the Faith Based ..

Refreshing, Complex and Charming Yet Spiritual in the Best Way Possible
 

Wow. Despite its predictable nature, this movie is remarkably well done. Too many faith based films lay it on too thick or can be ham-fisted and not believable. That's not the case with this movie. All the characters have depth and remarkable charm, especially the leads. In a perfect world, Brett Dalton would receive award nomination consideration for his performance. Sounds completely odd saying that about any January release but he really was that good. The set up in the first act plays out light and predictable but after a connection is made, the rest of the film is refreshing, complex and charming yet spiritual in the best way possible. The Gavin Stone character has a true arc and true development worthy of any big budget quality Hollywood production. They capture why faith is important in those "fly over" states mentioned in the movie. True Christian ethics are on display and this is truly a worthy effort and the best feel good film that I've seen in years.

Awesome movie - even my wife loved it.
 

As a movie maker and a movie watcher, I think the true test of a film involves the importance and effectiveness of the message delivered and the level of emotional involvement by the audience. If my criteria is valid, The Resurrection of Gavin Stone passes the test with flying colors. The crucifixion scene has never presented in a more powerful manner. The idea of a human finding his need for a savior while playing that very savior in a dramatic production is awesome. There will be people who find Jesus through watching this movie. I just pray that eventually this story actually plays out in real life, because it appears the man who played Jesus still hasn't met Him. I can help but think that scene will be playing in his head the rest of his life. It would be ironic to think that he employed his terrific acting skills to lead people into Heaven yet missed the bus to the Celestical city himself. If that happens, it won't be the fault of the director Dallas Jenkins (son of Jerry Jenkins of Left Behind fame) and writer, Andrea Nasfell, who provided an entertaining and innovative way of preaching the gospel - without actually preaching.

Well crafted humorous family movie.
 

Like many other reviews, this one takes an angle on the Christian-motive aspect of the movie. Often times, movies with explicitly Christian tones are not well done, poorly acted, and the story absolutely lacks structure and quality. This movie abides by none of those previously held notions. The cast and crew of this wonderful movie allow the film to come live and even hit theaters with a well off status and rapport. Gavin Stone, played by a well-rounded actor, has a spiritual journey that I think many can relate to in life. Not to mention the fact that a movie can have minimal to no swearing or sexual tones and can still carry a tune, so to say. The Resurrection of Gavin Stone is a reminder that Christian based movies can still produce a 10/10 quality movie for the viewer. I went in to this movie with an open mind and expecting nothing. I find that if I can go in to a movie with zero expectations, I can truly enjoy the little aspects of the move. Many of the scenes of Stone learning about himself and what is means to be selfless truly hit home for me and reminded me why living a life of Faith is well worth it.

A Really Fun Film
 

The acting was really good on this film. Not just the main people, but many of the secondary characters are really unique and funny. The film builds and gets better as it goes along. I cried and laughed out-loud more than once. This is not an all time classic, it is predictable, but I still loved it! IMDb says I have to write more so here is some bonus:o) The radio host who interviews Gavin Stone is amazing! He is only in a 2 minute scene but his personality and bright red hair are embedded in my memory. I don't think the cast has any A list actors, but many are in productions I have heard of or seen such as Mad TV, The Middle & WWF. Go see this one!

A well crafted combination of reality and laughter
 

The Resurrection of Gavin Stone is hilarious and powerful at the same time. Well edited and timed lines and reactions amid situations so real to life that you can't help but laugh at yourself. A powerful message of grace and forgiveness is entwined in a comedy that the whole family can enjoy. I couldn't help but think of it as a modern, Indie "Hail, Caesar" in which the harshness and unforgivingness of the entertainment business is contrasted with the grace and forgiveness of the bible stories it so often depicts. The story talers do a gracious job of pointing out the faults of both sides, bad acting in Christian dramas, bad attitudes in secular entertainment. The acting was great, I felt like I was watching real people. I highly recommend you checkout it out this weekend.

Brett Dalton & Anjelah were both brilliant in this feel-good film
 

This movie had a lot of layers nicely compacted into the main character, that got me emotionally involved in this film in a surprising way. Brett pulled off his role perfectly, and Anjelah was a great counterpart. I always end up respecting actors more highly when they do roles such as the ones in this movie, so whereas I liked Mr Dalton before from other roles, he was particularly endearing in this one. This movie is suitable for anyone who just likes pure human-nature-drama that weaves comedy, emotion, romance & moral dilemma into a feel-good tale. I'm very glad I watched it. It was refreshing to not be bombarded with intense graphic action, violence, trash talk, or dubious/insincere acting. This movie was clean, straightforward, and had a great message.

It's Fridge Worthy
 

In a word, Resurrection of Gavin Stone is "cute". It's a low stakes, lower budget, feel-good film that thinks thinks its giving you the world when really its just giving you a breezy, disposable and pleasant little ride. It wouldn't fit comfortably on any serious film fan's top favorites but I could see it left up on someone's refrigerator. ..

a must watch movie for Christian or non-Christian
 

I will admit that often movies in the Christian genre are cheesy, outdated, heavy, and, honestly, a bit embarrassing for the Christian community. I was delighted to see that The Resurrection of Gavin Stone has broken the previous mold. I appreciate that there are characters designed to basically poke fun of the Christian stereotypes.

Not everyone has that experience at a church every time, but to showcase the example of what it should and could look like is was wonderfully done. The skepticism and acceptance of people brought on both sides of Christian characters and non- Christian characters is right on. Altogether, this is entertaining, an excellent story of finding one's way in life experiencing the life changing message of the gospel, and ultimate acceptance of who people are and where they are in life. Invite people to see this inspiring movie.
