Dove Review

“Bad Girl” shows how a girl, who is headed down the wrong path, can return to the straight-and-godly path. Ruth Quinn Robinson (Ajiona Alexus) likes a young man named Roman Kraft (Seth Dousman), but he’s bad news. Roman is into partying and has one thing in mind when it comes to Ruth. Ruth’s father, Pastor Charles (Darrin Henson), is doing his best to keep his daughter from wandering from her faith in God. Pastor Charles is also dealing with his wife, Melinda (Chrystee Pharris), for she is sensual and doesn’t understand her husband’s devotion to Scripture and righteous living. Pastor Charles convinces Ruth to be a camp counselor during the summer, but when Ruth’s friend sneaks in a cell phone, the temptation to keep in touch with Roman is great. Will it lead to her ruin, or will a young Christian man named Jessie (Brendon Hudson) be able to help her and win her heart?

The movie features a few comedic moments, including a scene in which, after watching a movie from the ’60s, a kid says, “I’d like to watch something that was made after Jesus died and rose again.” The film features some good performances and the main story about taking a U-turn to return to the right path, something anyone can do at any time. Due to sexual comments and themes, as well as underage drinking, we are presenting this movie our “18+” Seal, meaning it has a faith-based theme but contains some potentially objectionable material.
