Original Air Date: January 10, 2009
Director: Steve Gomer
Stars: Jason Priestley, Teri Polo, Cheech Marin
After car troubles leave them stranded in a small Mexican town, a struggling young couple decides to stay together after the kindness of the villagers inspires them. Based on that plot synopsis alone, Expecting a Miracle sounds like it has all the makings of a pretty standard Hallmark movie, right?
Well, when it is revealed that the priest of this village is played by none other than Cheech Marin, anything even remotely believable about this movie goes up in smoke (sorry, but we had to). How could we listen to the pot king of the '70s try to teach us about togetherness and family values?
