Movie preview: Anybody buy Mark Wahlberg as “Father Stu?”

It’s a redemption story about a mug with dreams of stardom, who calls for a Catholic woman…and decided to become a priest?

This is what we call “The Big Mistake Theory.” You make a big enough mistake (Charles Colson, et al) or make enough of them, you grasp at religion.

Not shocking to see Mel Gibson is involved in “Father Stu.”

As redemption narratives go, this looks dubious, but may be there’s an audience for it.
