Little Boy

This faith-based parable (produced by Hollywood super-Christians Roma Downey and Mark Burnett) ups the ante by hiring a bunch of name-brand actors (including Michael Rapaport, Emily Watson, Kevin James, Ben Chaplin, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Ali Landry and Toby Huss). It's set during World War II and concerns a diminutive kid in a coastal California town who worries for his soldier dad's safe return. The local priest assures the boy that God will end the war if he fulfills the Seven Corporal Works of Mercy (stuff like "feeding the hungry," and "visiting the sick"). Writer/director Alejandro Monteverde (2006's Bella) is obviously sincere, but the film is way too sugary and sentimental to take seriously. 100 minutes PG-13.
