David AR White and his friends at PureFlix produce Christian films for the whole family. I have seen a few of them. The early ones needed some work, shall we say, but I will add that their films are getting better and better as oppose to getting worse or stagnating. Writers Tommy Blaze, Sean Paul Murphy, and Matt Richards are setting us up for a great, hilarious ride!
Brother White follows an Associate Pastor at a megachurch in Los Angeles who twice embarrasses the Senior Pastor, once live on television. As a “punishment” he is sent to a sister church in Atlanta, Georgia. It is a little awkward because the congregation is predominantly African-American, while the White family, are well, white.
The church is facing financial difficulties and is trying to raise the money to pay back a bank loan or they will be foreclosed on. Before Brother White can fix the church, however, he has to fix his family, especially things with his daughter.
Director Brian Herzlinger does a great job crafting the story together. He brings in some great comedy with some very witty dialogue. The movie is a bit cheesy, but I still found it more entertaining than usual for a low budget Christian comedy. The cast does an adequate job in acting out their roles. I will admit, it is entertaining, but it feels like a television film. That being said, it is a fun film for the whole family that promotes godly values.

If you would like to order your paperback copy of my debut novel Cacophony: A Tale Of Faith And Fear, click here. It is an incredible paranormal thriller about a group of demons trying to steal human souls by assaulting their church. The Messenger Gabriel, a Guardian angel Christopher, and the Seven Archangels are sent by God to stop them. It’s a tale that mixes drama, supernatural fiction, with a dash of fantasy.
