The Lucky Man

The Lucky Man" is an undercooked road movie that never effectively squares its mix of "Badlands"-style sweethearts-on-the-run crime drama with the religious fervor and hucksterism of the Steve Martin dramedy "Leap of Faith."The film follows childhood friends and now-longtime lovers Johnny (Jesse James), a coke-addicted preacher, and Rebecca (Mariana Paola Vicente), a materialistic beauty, as they cross the American southwest conning churchgoers and God-fearers into filling the collection plate on behalf of the Lord. The caveat: Johnny may actually possess the gift of healing, though it feels more sci-fi than spiritual.
