Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Believe

Not nearly as theologically driven as it may seem, but make no mistake, Believe is far from the film that will restore your faith in independent Christian cinema. This one takes a detour to focus on class, which initially seems potent, until it excuses the actions of an admittedly troubled but still arrogant business owner and an ending that isn't as uplifting as it may seem. In some ways, Bad Santa is more positive.
