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.

I must admit that DH was not at all interested in watching this movie, so I ended up watching it on my own while he had his game night with friends. While this was not a main stream blockbuster film, I appreciate that it is family friendly (though some topics of discussions might not be appropriate for young children). The characters in this movie had to examine their faith as well as trust in each other. Personally, I really like the spiritual aspect of this film. If you are looking for a feel-good movie about forgiveness and redemption, this is the movie for you.
