Joe Amable-Amo (Edward James Olmos) is a bank executive and former amateur golfer struggling with his faith after an unexpected tragedy. Faced with doubts about himself, his purpose, and his belief in God, Joe is stunned when God tells him that he's been chosen to inspire the world and play in a world championship golf tournament. Guided by God's eccentric personal messenger, Herb (George Lopez), Joe learns that the seemingly impossible is possible...through faith, family, and second chances.

Awkward faith-based comedy has decent characters, messages.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Walking with Herb is a faith-based dramedy about a man (Edward James Olmos) who has lost his faith but then gets a message from God telling him to win a golf tournament. It has positive messages and admirable characters, but it's also clumsy and ultimately somewhat unsatisfying. While content is tame overall, it does address death and includes images of funerals, including an infant's. A man throws temper tantrums on a golf course; another takes out his rage on a punching bag. Thoughts of suicide are implied in one scene. There's passionate kissing, and language includes "fart," "wedgie," and "poop," as well as "Jesus" and "oh my God" as exclamations. Adults regularly drink wine with meals.
