Movie Info

This documentary from filmmaker Daniel Lusko takes a look at the history of the Jesus Movement from its beginnings in the late 1960s, and examines its influence on modern evangelism. Prominent religious figures Chuck Smith, Greg Laurie, and Mike Macintosh discuss their progress since the Movement's early days, and contemplate how to keep the church relevant in a rapidly changing society. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Riptide

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

Riptide traces with meticulous care the path traced in a human being by the slow, poisonous growth of a terrific jealousy.

April 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Some strictly tabloid exposures. Not Miss Shearer's best picture.

July 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Gets wrapped up ever-tighter around one very small idea — the notion that a marriage requires much honesty and patience in order to work.

Routine Norma Shearer (wife of MGM producer Irving Thalberg) romantic love triangle melodrama.

Audience Reviews for Riptide

As I started to watch this film, I thought it was going to be a comedy. The characters of Marshall and Shearer meet for the first time dressed as insects. Shearer plays a woman who gives up her carefree New York lifestyle to marry the Lord (played stodgily by Marshall) and lives the sedate married life; until she runs into her ex (played by the ever-so-suave and charming Montgomery). It becomes a cloying melodrama with Shearer caught between two men who love her. It does liven up when Shearer and Montgomery are on-screen together, as they seem to shine together. They make the movie worth watching and save it from being too "soapy".
