Movie Review: Honk for Jesus. Save your soul

Honk for Jesus. Save your soul is a 2022 comedy released on 2 September that stars popularly known actor Sterling K. Brown and Regina Hall. Adamma Ebo wrote and directed the movie.

 Trinitie Childs (Regina Hall) and her husband, Pastor Lee-Curtis Childs (Sterling K. Brown), served a congregation of thousands. A scandal rocked the Southern Baptist Mega-church and forced it to close.

Trinitie is on a mission to reopen the church and build the congregation. Her husband, Pastor Lee Curtis Childs, is also on a mission, but are they working towards the same goal?

This thought-provoking movie focuses on the model Christian lifestyle and the vices that plague it. These vices include sexual assault, homosexuality and everything in between.

The incredible cast did justice to the story that would have otherwise felt rushed. With a wrap sheet like hers, it is not surprising that an actress like Regina King would do justice to the story. Sterling K. Brown, just coming out of the tear-jerking This is Us series, also brought life to the movie.

The Film Was Quite An Accurate representation Of The Perversion Of Religion

If you want to see a film depicting the new world, you should probably watch this movie.

Pastor Curtis Childs established he was into younger men between the ages of 20 and above. His preferences made the characters in the movie wonder why the First Lady stayed despite everything that happened. There’s no doubt that they are homosexual pastors as much as perverts as pastors, but it would be beautiful to note that even though these pastors are servants of God.

Finally, this movie talks about the corruption in the US mega-churches, the closeted pastor of this century, and how hard it is to keep a relationship. The move is also reminiscent of the scandals that have affected some churches in Nigeria.

Popular Audience Reviews for Honk for Jesus. Save your soul

relationships. One can look at this as a movie that illustrates corruption in the US megachurch, but it is more than that. One actor portrays someone who may not totally understand how choices he makes in his sexual life affect the church and his wife. The other actor, the wife, caught up in materialism and fame representing the outside world, evolves into self-awareness and starts to take emotional control of herself, pushing back against her earlier roles as cheerleading for her husband, reflecting on her love for Christ, being the core that allows the church to grow, culminating in a dissonance when she considers that she, not her husband, is the victim. I interpret this as her feeling that she does a lot in the background that is not fully understood or appreciated, the possibility that her husband will likely mess up again by sexually harassing young men, and living a life where her sexual needs are not met. Like many novels written today, the movie does not conclude with resolutions. But, it is one of the more thought-provoking movies I have seen in a long time. I went into the movie expecting a lot of humor, but we left talking for over an hour about the intent and themes in the movie.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – August 28: Crystal Hayslett, Regina Hall, Devale Ellis and Khadeen Ellis attend “Honk For Jesus. Save Your Soul.” Brunch at 5Church Midtown 

This has to be the worst movie that I have ever seen in my entire life. It seems as if it was based on the story of a pastor in GA (that is no longer alive). #Terrible?

Tammy Ikama-Obambi

If I could put zero stars, I would. So boring, no plot at all. It was very cringy, not funny at all. Not sure why it’s categorized as a comedy!

Andrea M

Funny and sad at the same time. It shows how glorification of oneself leads to destruction.

Toni Mcdowell

I loved it! Kevin hart would’ve been a better actor for this role.
