"Mr. Church" tells the story of a unique friendship that develops when a little girl and her dying mother retain the services of a talented cook - Henry Joseph Church. What begins as a six month arrangement instead spans into fifteen years and creates a family bond that lasts forever.
Drama - A slow but heartwarming drama. This is a totally different role for
Eddie Murphy and he does a great job. It does contain spurts of foul
language that may offend some, which is a shame because this is a
movie most should enjoy. Also, this is not a Christian based movie.
The main character's name just happens to be Church.
