Christian Mingle gives a new spin on dating in 2015. Gwyneth (Lacey Chabert) and Paul (Jonathan Patrick Moore) start communicating through online dating, which isn’t shown on film. We see them meet at a coffee shop, and embark on a relationship where one person is lying their way through it.
The possible deception of online dating becomes apparent through Lacey’s portrayal of a girl faking sincere Christianity. Her lies catch up with her on a mission trip with Paul’s family. Unfortunately, the pair breaks up, but her road to God has just begun. That great road has a potential to lead her right back into Paul’s heart. Saidah Arrika Ekulona, Morgan Fairchild, John O’Hurley and David Keith also star in the movie based on the popular real life Christian dating website.
I tried online dating in my late teens, and ChristianMingle.com was one of the sites I registered with. The results were disastrous, and I found several liars online. Seeing Christian Mingle the movie brought back those unpleasant memories, but it also showed a positive angle that can result from someone looking for a Christian spouse.
Christian Mingle was a good movie. I recommend all ages watch this cute Valentine’s Day movie with a good message.
The film airs February 8th at 7PM EST on UP tv.
