  1. This deliciously offbeat Canadian comedy gets its charm from marvelous acting and from a screenplay bursting with ideas. Great fun.

    The kind of well-acted, genuine heartwarmer that some people complain Hollywood doesn't bother making anymore. And in this case, Hollywood didn't.

    All of this is punctuated with refreshingly strange wit.
  4. Wants to be a sex farce, a sports film and a serious meditation on Catholicism. To its credit, it succeeds as all three.

    McGowan’s film isn’t just about following this boy’s private quest to accomplish the impossible. It is also about how he affects the other characters in the film.

    Even though it sprints along a well-trod path through familiar territory, Saint Ralph remains surprisingly compelling.
  7. A tart and tender comedy that pulls off a little miracle of its own by being genuinely heartwarming without leaving any cloyingly sticky emotional residue.
  8. Tthe kind of movie the clergy can recommend to anxious parishioners.
  9. 63
    As predictably uplifting movies go, Saint Ralph isn't completely charmless.

    I really liked the movie. I just wish they would have showed him seeing his mother awake.
