    Brimming with sincere intentions and a few interesting thoughts. It brings a rare sort of realism to the movie world.

    In spite of a little bit of sex and a lot of strong profanity, Ordinary Sinner is pretty reminiscent of an old Afterschool Special.
  3. 50
    Aside from one tasteful nude scene, this well-meaning if bland romantic drama plays and looks a lot like a "special" episode of "Dawson's Creek."

    Well intentioned but unfocused, director John Henry Davis's debut feature tries to tackle two serious subjects at once: maintaining one's faith in a universe that's seemingly without meaning, and the ways in which scripture is used to justify anti-gay violence.
  5. 40
    What really hamstrings Sinner, though, is the hetero narcissism beneath its enlightened posturing.
  6. It is a slack and preachy business that never comes to grips with its underlying theme of homophobia.

    As technically amateurish as it is narratively ludicrous.
