Holy Irresistible: Review

Holy Irresistible: Review

Ivy (Ian Gregg) lost his faith when he witnessed his parents getting killed when a driver swerved into them. However, Ivy still lives in a very faith-based community and although it weighs him down when everybody around him seems to blindly follow God, he does his best to get by in his hometown.

Then one day he meets Sadie (Leah Merrit) and it feels like love at first sight. Although, when he does what he can to get to know her, Ivy soon realises that Sadie is a Christian. Not only that, but her dad is a pastor who believes that his daughter shouldn’t date.

However, this only encourages Ivy who consults his best friend, Surge (Tyler Graham). A man who lost also his faith, but knows enough to help Ivy get by as he gets to know Sadie. However, as they get to know each other, Ivy starts to realise that Sadie’s faith may not be so bad after all.



Holy Irresistible is a romantic comedy directed by Pamela Corkey, and written by Andrew Shearer and Nicholas Sherman. Although, as some may expect it to be a devout faith-based comedy preaching to the choir, Holy Irresistible couldn’t be farther away from that.

Instead, the film plays more like a usual romantic comedy. The kind that has a somewhat high concept premise, but has a script that feels well thought out and authentic. There are also a few discussions about faith as Ivy questions the power of God. Although they’re dealt with even-handedly and show the audience both sides of the argument.

The cast is full of comedic and quirky characters, although not so much that they get annoying. Highlights such as Lea DeLaria’s aunt Rad and George Deavours’ right-wing pastor are bound to raise a few smiles.

Holy Irresistible’s script doesn’t play too heavily to a solely Christian audience. Although it might surprise some who are expecting the typical kind of thing from this subgenre. However, those with an open mind and a sense of humour are bound to find something they like in this funny albeit formulaic romantic comedy.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
