      Dave Kehr New York Times There's not much for the viewer to do during God, Sex & Apple Pie except check off the obligatory plot points. Rated: 1/5 Sep 25, 2001 Full Review Jae-Ha Kim Jae-Ha Kim "God, Sex & Apple Pie" is being marketed as the next "Big Chill." "Little Shiver" is more like it. Rated: 2/4 Jul 27, 2023 Full Review Ross Anthony Hollywood Report Card It does have some sex, some apple pie and some God, but it's more often in the verbal or implication, even the apple pie, if you let it be a symbol of growing up in America. Rated: 2/4 May 9, 2004 Full Review Christopher Null Filmcritic.com so derivative it's hard to get past its knockoff status Rated: 3/5 Oct 16, 2003 Full Review Joshua Tanzer Offoffoff Takes the "Secaucus 7" / "Big Chill" formula and does nothing interesting with it. Rated: 0.5/4 Mar 11, 2003 Full Review Maitland McDonagh TV Guide Well-written and surprisingly well-acted by a relatively inexperienced cast. Rated: 2.5/5 Sep 25, 2001 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member It's hard to run away from the dulling thud of the evening news and Facebook items that rain-soak our modern life. Thankfully, proper entertainment is still here to shelter us from that frenetic storm, and the terrific "God, Sex, and Apple Pie" is the kind of film able to remind us of our desperate core need for relational experiences -- perfect and imperfect -- in our quests to pin down greater meaning in life. "God, Sex, and Apple Pie" tracks four thirty-something couples (and a postman) as they take to a resort town and convene on life's essential truths. The film's titling reflects the ruminations that couples gravitate towards in these settings –- existential concerns, hooking up, and sorting out the indigenously American trappings and possibilities of a forward-moving existence. Led by actors Greg Wrangler, Penelope Crabtree, and Mark Porro, this GenX-tailored ensemble film gives rise to a terrific chemistry between individuals at once sharing similar and disparate spaces. Kudos to the creative team for the great push and pull they manage with that, as conflict runs alongside camaraderie and the dramatic alongside the comedic in equal and unforced measure. "The Big Chill" seems a point of reference for those consuming "God, Sex, and Apple Pie." That's no trite evocation, and quite the feather in any cap. "The Big Chill" came at us at the height of the Cold War; it felt natural to ground one's self in its personal and human impacts. Today, "God, Sex, and Apple Pie" is the kind of movie positioned to soothe similar needs for its own generational audience. This is a well-conceived and thoughtfully executed movie, and ripe for the day at hand. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Great writing, great acting, great film! Solid ensemble cast - not easy to assemble more than 2 or 3 really solid actors, and this film pulls that off. Refreshing, fun and entertaining! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member A kind of a "Big Chill" with an indie vibe. Ok, not exactly Big Chill, but a similar slice of life story of friends coming of age (or aging), still figuring out their place in the world, as most people are still doing into adulthood. A mix of strong actors and some developing actors. Some very nice scenery and cinematography. The music was nicely done and quite fitting with the tone(s) - both the more serious dramatic moments and more comedic moments. I can appreciate the charms of a low budget movie, where some reviewers can only compare to big budget Hollywood productions, which is really an inappropriate barometer. A reasonably sizable cast delivered a charming story with some laughs and heart tugs with a feel-good air. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Great film from the 1990s. It's a time capsule with a great story. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member WELL, I THOUGHT IT WAS PRETTY GOOD. GRANTED, IT HAS BEEN DONE SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE, AND BETTER, BUT I WAS NEVER BORED. SOME OF THE ACTING IS SUB PAR, BUT SOME OF IT GOOD AS WELL. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member So dumb, it shouldn't even qualify as a movie. The cheeziest of dialogue, and the crappiest of acting. The plot lines are of the most typical. At first, it seemed like I was watching some porno movie. It's a comedy, but there's really nothing that funny about the movie. If the movie is really good later on, then too bad, because i stopped watching after 45 mins of it. Don't know why my brother rented it.
