First Sunday

Rated PG-13 96 minutes 2008

This heist comedy has a hackneyed introduction, and its feel-good ending lacks credibility, but the big, funny chunk in the middle marks writer-director-producer David E. Talbert as a talent to watch. Ice Cube and Tracy Morgan play small-time Baltimore criminals so desperate for cash they break into a local church, only to find its safe empty and the building full of witnesses. Katt Williams (Norbit) keeps the quips flying as a wacky choir director, while the ever delightful Loretta Devine (This Christmas) redeems the love-deprived Morgan with an impromptu birthday party, encapsulating, in just one scene, the film's hopeful message. Chi McBride, Michael Beach, Keith David, Regina Hall, Malinda Williams, and Olivia Cole round out the solid ensemble (98 min., 2008).
