This movie was inspired by events that took place at a church in New Rochelle, NY, in October of 1963. The real North Avenue Presbyterian did lose its charter at some point before the movie was released, was sold to the city of New Rochelle, and stood vacant for over 30 years. It is now owned by Clara & Mariano Rivera and hosts Clara's Pentecostal congregation. See more »

I watched this as a child and thought it was hilarious!!!! Even after twenty years (yes, I have seen it again as an adult) it is still hilarious! I can't wait to watch it again with my kids. I would definitely recommend this one! There is a lot of physical humor in this movie. (i.e.-like the humor in the classic TV series Lavern and Shirley) One of my favorite scenes is when all of the ladies are trying to follow one of the crooks and are soooo conspicuous! The Rev. says, "Everybody peel off, peel off" and well.....you really just need to see the movie.
