‘I’m in Love With a Church Girl’ ~
CFDb Movie Review & Recommendation
Miles Montego (Ja Rule) has it all – cars, boats, good looks, mansion, money, women, but more importantly, he has a past. Miles is a retired high level drug trafficker who is now completely legitimate. Even though Miles has turned over a new leaf, the DEA can’t seem to let him out of their sights. Miles’ only downfall is that he is extremely loyal to his circle of friends and former colleagues who are not retired from the lucrative business.
Struggling to keep on the right side of the law, Miles meets the one girl of his dreams but she’s not the usual type of girl that he’s used to dating. Vanessa (Adrienne Bailon) is a church girl in every sense of the word. They are tested to their last ounce of faith and strength in God and each other. God continues to chip away at Miles through struggles from his past, having to live up to his reputation, feelings of unworthiness, the death of his mother…
Toby Mac, known for his Grammy-winning musical performances, has included acting to his resume. With a role in the new film I’m in Love with a Church Girl, he joins former dcTalk bandmate Kevin Max as the latest in a line of Christian musicians who have taken roles in faith-based films.
Wow! What a film. I could just end the review right there. It was THAT good! Bravo! These two main characters, pictured above, FANTASTIC JOB! They were so believable, a great casting choice. We didn’t even realize that this was inspired by a true story.
From beginning to end, this is a film that you will really enjoy. It’s a powerful story, and some great humor intermixed. Some great lines throughout as well.
What I especially liked was…
- The honesty of Miles, even before he knew Jesus.
- The theme that came out through this is that everything we have belongs to God and that He is in control.
- The amazing way Vanessa stood for her morals even though she was obviously head over heels for Miles.
A must see film!
