"So refreshing. For someone who has collected a lot of christian movies I must they that Hidden Secrets has been a nice suprise. It was funny, thought provoking, realistic, true to the Gospel and professionally made.
Very good Drama..."

"This is a great movie with a powerful message. Christian message comes through loud and clear, but is not "preachy". Get it."

"I saw this in the theater as a sneak preview long, long ago. I was eager to take friends to see it, but it was never released. Now I guess I will just purchase copies for Christmas gifts.
Good story. Every one has a secret - and all is revealed and the healing begins by the end.
Since it begins at the funeral of a common friend, it reminded me of a Christian "Big Chill."
Can't wait for the release of the DVD"
Solid movie with room for improvement - but a great message!

"I found Hidden Secrets to be very uplifting in spite of some very heavy themes. The film revolves around the love a group of people share for a friend (and brother in one case) who had recently died. From this group of people, we can see the impact that one person can have on other people's lives. Through this, we see many different levels of faith played out in the relationships, from unbeliever to convicted fundamentalist. It is an interesting study on the interplay of life and faith. The movie is written from a Christian standpoint, and that comes through clearly throughout the movie. There were periods in the film where I felt some disconnect as the writer tried to cover a large spectrum of levels of faiths. I would have happily endured another 20 minutes to see a bit more character development to flesh out some of the relationships and background story that would've filled the gaps later on as the movie progressed. In spite of these small points where I wanted more, the film was well done, well acted and very well filmed. I appreciate this kind of film, and hope film makers like this are encouraged in the marketplace to continue to produce and to improve the film industry. I fully recommend it, and will likely be watching it again soon with my wife. I'd give it 4 out of 5 stars!
As a side bonus, the music in the movie was outstanding. Rachel Lampa and Building 429 provide a good chunk of music in the film, and it is excellent."
It's worth buying or at least renting

"I got this movie for Christmas. I read all the reviews and watched the trailer and read the back of the dvd to find out what it was about. I asked for it for Christmas so if it was bad I wouldn't have to worry about money badly spent. After watching this movie it was made clear to me that it was worth every penny I would have spent on it. It was funny, insightful and it dealt with more than one issue of secret sin. Each character was dealing with or was getting over a secret sin. The main point of this movie is God's forgiveness. Sometimes it's easy to feel forgiven by God, but it's hard for us to forgive ourselves. Or on the other hand it's hard to come to terms that we deserved to be forgiven at all. It has comedy, drama, good music and just plain fun. Buy it new or used or even rent it, but it's worth it. Not all Christian films have to be about the end times lol. But if you like end times go buy or watch the Left Behind series. For a fun film I highly recommend this movie, thank you for reading."
