Father Stu review – renegade-turned-priest Mark Wahlberg blesses Catholic drama

In this de facto, if far from de jure, latest iteration of the Ted franchise, Mark Wahlberg once again forms a strange, almost inexplicable bond with a supernatural creature who tests him in a number of painful, problematic ways. However – surprise! – instead of a stuffed teddy bear that’s come to life, this time the agent of chaos is God himself, that omnipresent, omniscient, all-powerful scamp. God first makes the life of Wahlberg’s Stuart Long hard by taking away his little brother via a sudden death when they are little kids, and then giving him a nature that gets him into trouble throughout his life, keeping him from finding a vocation until he finally Finds a Vocation, ie the desire to become a priest.

Mark Wahlberg Reveals Why He Doesn’t ‘Force’ Catholic Faith on His Children

Although he has been publicly open about his religious views, Mark Wahlberg says he doesn’t “force” his Catholic faith on his children. While promoting his new film “Father Stu” on “Today,” Mark Wahlberg says he approaches the impart of his Catholic faith to his children by more of a living it than mandating it. “They think dad’s crazy. And he’s boring. But even with my faith, I don’t force it on them. But they know that dad can’t start the day without being in prayer. Can’t start the day without reading my Scripture or going to Mass.”

Interview: Actor/Producer Mark Wahlberg on Discovering the Story of Father Stu and Finding the Time and Team to Make the Movie

Since we’ll be focusing on a film about a spiritual man, I’ll open this interview with a confession: I did this interview so long ago that I basically forgot to transcribe, edit, and get it ready to publication. So here we are, a couple of weeks late. But it’s still good material for such a relatively short conversation between me and Mark Wahlberg, the star and producer of Father Stu. The film is the real-life story of Stuart Long, a boxer-turned-actor-turned-priest who inspired countless people during his journey from self-destruction to redemption, with a whole lot of obstacles, including a crippling illness, in his way. And as much as the movie feels like Wahlberg perhaps trying to make up for some bad behaviors early in his own life, his very clear passion for this story and person is so evident that Father Stu rises above your usual faith-based material. It doesn’t quite get to the level of Inspirational, but it’s still a fascinating journey that includes as much humor as pathos, and more four-letter words than either I or the faith-based journalists I saw this movie with were expecting.
