Mark Wahlberg’s recent hit film “Father Stu” is being re-released in theaters after its April debut. The new version, as Walberg explained, was subject to significant editing, but he argued that the message remained influential.

“We pulled out all 200 and some weird swear words,” Wahlberg said on “The Ingraham Angle” on Wednesday, “and the movie is still just as powerful.”


“Father Stu: Reborn” will hit theaters in December. The story follows Father Stuart’s difficult path to redemption after his family is torn apart at the beginning of the film.

Re-released as a PG-13 version suitable for families.

Mark Wahlberg left Hollywood for Nevada to give his kids a ‘better life’: ‘It made a lot of sense to us’

“Given the R-rated nature of the film, a lot of families didn’t feel comfortable letting their kids see it, but they really wanted them to get the message,” Wahlberg told Fox News’ Raymond Arroyo.

“To see Stu’s journey and the struggle he went through to find his calling, we felt, was really important for people of all ages.”

Wahlberg said that removing the profanity didn’t take anything away from the message behind the film, but he encouraged young people to watch the original cut when they are older.

He argued that viewing the way Father Stu handled adversity and suffering and, ultimately, his calling to serve God would have a lasting impact on viewers.

Actor Mark Wahlberg explains why his film 'Father Stu' was re-cut to remove profanity and what life lessons young people can learn from watching this film on 'The Ingraham Angle'.

“I really wanted young people to see it, but especially young boys,” he said.

“We want to prevent kids from making the same mistakes we made – certainly mistakes that I made. So anything we can do to show them an easy way to serve God and be positive, productive members of society Huh. ”

Wahlberg said “Father Stu”, which is based on a true story, was one of the most important films of his career.

“This movie in particular has touched so many people, and it reminded them of what life is really about,” Wahlberg explained.

“We want people to know that they are not forgotten, we all make mistakes, and no one is beyond redemption,” he said. “We want to spread so much love and so much acceptance.”
