First Sunday

Keep the faith. Steal the rest.


First Sunday
A man has a problem: his estranged wife can't pay her rent, so wants to move back to mom, taking the couple's son with her. Dad does not like this idea, so his buddy comes up with a scheme to make some money fast. That lands them in trouble with the law, and facing large financial debts. Luckily they stumble across a church which seems to have lots of money, and they're soon scheming to rob it. However, things do not quite work out as planned, and they find themselves getting deeper and deeper into trouble... The critics were underwhelmed.

Jason Anderson quote iconA lot goes wonky in this Ice Cube-produced attempt to make an inspirational crowdpleaser.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThere are awkward moments and the ending feels excessively contrived, but there are things to like about First Sunday, most of which are not hinted at in the trailers and TV commercials.
