Also, the church is looked on positively. Nick and Dylan ultimately learn that a family that loves you is more important than wealth. All of this is done in a heartfelt comedic way that becomes quite enjoyable. ROGUE SAINTS is good family entertainment.
(CCC, BBB, M) Very strong Christian, Biblical worldview with the Church seen as a blessing rather than a nuisance, with church service sequences, Scripture is read, people pray, the Gospel is preached, people are baptized, and a comedic (but not condescending) scene where someone explains simple doctrines of Christianity like the Trinity and the virgin birth; no foul language, but one use of Heck; no violence; no sexual content (the virgin birth is mentioned); no nudity; no alcohol; no smoking or drugs; and, the two “good guys” are thieves that are stealing from a church and lie, but God gets hold of them by the end and they repent.
In ROGUE SAINTS, Nick and Dylan are two young imaginative boys. One day they hear of a story of how a diamond worth millions was hidden underneath the baptismal at Nick’s church. Most people who hear the story pass it off as a silly rumor. However, Nick and Dylan really believe there is a diamond. They vow that one day they will dig it up and be rich. Nick and Dylan grow up and go their separate ways.
Years pass. Dylan became wealthy from independent ventures and travels the world living the good life. He isn’t smart with his money, however. Eventually, he overspends and ends up with nothing. Not being smart with his money, Dylan eventually overspends his money and ends up with nothing.
Meanwhile, Nick has married a girl from his church and became a real estate developer. Not long after, however, Nick’s wife died of cancer. So, Nick became angry at God and left the church. Now, his real estate career is in shambles, and he doesn’t know what to do – until he sees something that reminds him of the diamond.
Nick reaches out to Dylan over the Internet, and they decide to meet up. After reconnecting, Nick and Dylan decide to pull a heist on the church to steal the hidden diamond, but to do so, they’ll have to go undercover as church volunteers. They arrive at church, and immediately get a warm welcome because Nick used to attend the church. In a comical way, Nick explains to Dylan what he needs to know to pass himself off as a good and believable Christian.
The heist gets underway as Nick and Dylan slowly dig and carve their way underneath the church. All the while, they hope that nobody notices what they’re doing.
A problem soon arises. Dylan falls in love with a young gal name Malea who goes to the church. Also, a police officer is slowly figuring out their plan. Will Nick and Dylan get caught or is there something even bigger going on that they don’t even know?
