“The Pussycat Preacher” is one of those documentaries ripe for lurid headline encapsulation: “Ex-Druggie Stripper Now Converts Sex Biz to Christ!” Bill Day’s slick pic doesn’t dig much deeper than that. But there’s undeniable entertainment value in following the very blonde, artificially buxom Heather Veitch on her controversial mission of Christian outreach to strip-club and porn workers. Cable and rep-house exposure is possible.

From a chaotic family background, Veitch drifted into exotic dance and softcore fetish-film jobs (latter in “trampling” videos, walking on men in spike heels), as well as substance abuse, sex addiction, underage pregnancy, et al. Then she found the Lord and started living a stable suburban lifestyle with husband and kids in Riverside, Calif. She also found Sandals Church, led by surfer-dude pastor Matt Brown, who encouraged her notion of “JC’s Girls” –Heather and two other bombshell parishioners proselytizing to sex workers. As the trio’s sexy self-promotion attracts wide media attention, many in Sandals’ congregation and beyond take great offense. Foes’ perspective could be given more screen time, and narrowly focused pic never really questions the blurry line between Veitch’s faith and evident enjoyment of exhibitionism.
