“First Sunday” is an hilarious comedy about two men who, following a bad situation, need money and need it fast. They find themselves in a church service on Sunday morning and get the idea to rob the church to get the money they need. In doing so, they also find something else…Faith. The film is quite touching towards the end and leaves the viewer with some good thoughts. The movie also shows a valuable lesson but due to the language and a few areas of content in the film, including racial slurs and some characters mocking communion, as well as other concerns listed in “other” below, Dove is not able to award the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this picture.
