I'm In Love With A Church Girl
Cars. Good looks. Mansions. Money. Women. Miles Montego has it all. Including a past. He was king of the streets as a high-level drug trafficker, and although he has tried to move on, the DEA isn't convinced. Miles is still rolling with his old friends and colleagues, and the feds are certain he has not fully retired from his criminal past. When Miles meets Vanessa Leon, a woman who is different than every other woman he's met, he is drawn to her beauty and her faith. She is a "church girl" in every sense of the word.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Even having God on the production team can't save this 'Church Girl' from its heavy-handed sermonizing."
‑ Scott Foundas, Variety
"Suffers from the same ills as too many movies that preach to the choir: a laborious length, formulaic plot and dialogue and, disappointing for a film that stars a rapper, a stock score."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, Los Angeles Times
"Solid performances by Ja Rule and Adrienne Bailon combine with an inspirational story to make an enjoyable film."
‑ Jackie K. Cooper, jackiekcooper.com
"Drug dealer's conversion story appeals to faith audiences."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"It egregiously lacks subtlety and too often resorts to excessive sermonizing."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
"This overlong drama plays like a threefold infomercial: for Christianity, the cheesy resort chain Sandals and Jeff "Ja Rule" Atkins, the rapper-turned-actor playing drug kingpin Miles Montego."
‑ Sara Stewart, New York Post
"We're apparently supposed to root for these two to make it, although Vanessa is outlandishly jealous and pushy."
‑ Stephanie Merry, Washington Post
"You won't believe a second of it."
‑ Roger Moore, Movie Nation
"For a religion started by a martyred egalitarian hippie who hung out with lepers and prostitutes and was executed by The Man, these supposed adherents sure seem obsessed with Earthly wealth. Bad movie, but a fascinating watch."
‑ Vincent Mancini, FilmDrunk
"Screenwriter Galley Molina based the film on his own experience, going from drug pusher to minister, but, for all that, this cliche-besotted film feels somehow synthetic in the extreme."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"A message film with the narrative sophistication of a recruiting pamphlet."
‑ Miriam Bale, New York Times
"There is no reason a film with an agenda can't also be engaging or thought-provoking. But what we have here is not so much a movie as a blunt Sunday sermon."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"To call the acting amateurish does a disservice to hard-working amateurs everywhere."
‑ Kimberley Jones, Austin Chronicle
"For myself and most folks expecting a movie, it is too transparent an infomercial for the church to move the mountain."
‑ Steven Boone, RogerEbert.com
"The creakiness of its storytelling and its unabashed preachiness betray its origins as a film designed to proselytize more than entertain. It fails on both levels."
‑ Nathan Rabin, The Dissolve
