I'm in Love with a Church Girl DVD #Review + #Giveaway (Valentine's Day Guide)

I'm In Love With A Church Girl

A heart-warming story about the transformative power of love and redemption, I’m In Love With A Church Girl debuts on DVD, Blu-ray, VOD and digital January 14 from Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM), following its successful theatrical release this fall.  Based on the real-life events of executive producer Galley Molina, the film stars Jeff “Ja Rule” Atkins (Once Upon A Time In Brooklyn), Adrienne Bailon (The Coalition, The Cheetah Girls), Stephen Baldwin (The Usual Suspects), Vincent Pastore (“The Sopranos”) and Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs). The film, the first from RGM-NewBreed, received the coveted Dove Foundation “Family Approved” seal of approval, including a review that reads in part, “this one should not be missed.” The film was executive-produced by RGM-NewBreed founder and CEO Galley Molina along with vice president and Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Israel Houghton, known around the world as worship leader for Pastor Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church, America’s largest congregation.

Miles Montego (Atkins) is a retired high-level drug trafficker who has gone legitimate—though he has not yet left his old friends and his old lifestyle behind. When he meets Vanessa (Bailon), a “church girl” in every sense of the word, he is drawn to her spirituality even though she’s nothing like the girls he’s used to dating.  As Miles struggles to stay on the right side of the law, both he and Vanessa find that their faith in God— and each other—is tested to its limits.

An inspiring story about God’s power, the I’m In Love With A Church Girl Blu-ray and DVD include a “making of” featurette, deleted scenes and an inside look at the life and story of  -  the real Miles Montego.

Our thoughts...

I was intrigued by this film when I saw the trailer a few months ago. I'm always interested to see stories of faith on the big screen. This is a powerful story of one man's struggle with his personal life, and his inspiring faith journey. So many people in this world feel like the things they've done in their lives equals out to not being good enough for God. This is such a beautiful display of how someone's life can completely change when they allow God to enter their heart.

Ja Rule, and Adrienne Bailon give outstanding performances in the film. Ja Rule truly captures what it is to feel broken and unworthy of love from others, as well as love from God. I loved that TobyMac and Stephen Baldwin (among others) appeared in this film, as well, has received a DOVE award, and was co-produced by Israel Houghton, one of my all time favorite songwriters and worship leaders.

Our family gives this film two thumbs up, and we think it would be a wonderful film to gift for Valentine's Day! It would be so neat for churches to organize a dinner and a movie date night for young parents and show this film!
