Additionally, The Dove Foundation called this movie a “sweet romantic comedy” and Ted Baehr, publisher of movieguide.org, said it had “great heart” and was “laugh-out-loud funny.” Focus on the Family’s Plugged In gave it 4.5 out of 5 and said, “there’s a clear and unforced Gospel presentation.”
Taking viewers on a laughter-filled adventure to discover love and happiness, Christian Mingle: The Movie stars Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls, Party of Five) as Gwyneth Hayden, a 30-something marketing executive with a top-notch career, killer wardrobe, dream apartment and great friends – she thinks the only thing missing is a man.
In a moment of inspired desperation, she fills out a profile on the dating website ChristianMingle.com hoping to find Mr. Right, “God’s match” for her. However, Gwyneth’s attempts at impressing her dream guy end in disaster when he calls her out on her “faux faith.” In an honest realization, she sees her superficial life for what it really is, which leads Gwyneth down a path toward fulfilling the true desires of her heart with “life-changing” love.
