"The Resurrection of Gavin Stone should satisfy its target heartland audience."--Hollywood Reporter.
"The end result merits a paraphrase of the memorable appraisal by Miss Jean Brodie: For those who like that sort of thing, this is the sort of thing they probably will like."--Variety.

A predictable heart warming Christian weak prodigal-son theme story. An acceptable diversion, if needed, from all those Marvel genre fantasies movies or raunchy comedies - no nudity, no cleavage, no cussing, no CGI, no violence ... Below par relative to other recent small budget family drama on Faith: The Shack, Risen, War Room, Little Boy; on par with Priceless.

-Court her? What, are you a Quaker or something?

I know you're talented and charming, but I've had entire classes of fourth graders who are less trouble than you. And what you still don't get is this is entirely opposite of who Jesus was. He wasn't about spectacle. He was humble. He made himself low. If you weren't so busy trying to make everything sparkle and burn and fly, maybe you'd see that.

Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?
-Go and sell all that you have.
I have many possessions. Lam a wealthy man.
-Give them away. You'll have treasure in heaven.
