Wondering why times are missing?


Christian filmmakers have finally salted away enough money to talk big-name Hollywood stars into selling their wares. Here, a hostage (Kate Mara, "House of Cards") uses Rick Warren's best-selling book of devotional Bible quotes The Purpose Driven Life to convince her desperate captor (David Oyelowo, Selma) to put his life on the path to redemption. The Purpose Driven Life, on sale now in the Christian section of a Barnes & Noble near you! This preachy thriller is directed by eightysomething Jerry Jameson, who was the supervising editor on 30 episodes of "The Andy Griffith Show," 90 episodes of "Gomer Pyle: USMC" and 40 episodes of "Mayberry R.F.D." 97 minutes PG-13.
