Hi Rozzy,
I guess because a lot of Christian movies are designed for Christians, they're predominantly quite 'cheesy' and quite theatrical about it!
If you're wanting something more subtle to show non-Christian friends, then going for a secular film with Christian characters or a moral message might be the way forward?
It's amazing the kind of Christian messages that come across through normal films and TV!
There's a Christian focused episode of Glee, for example, that (despite a character cast of gay and pregnant highschoolers) is full of prayers, worship songs, and an open belief in Christ! Go, Glee! (yup, we said it! #Gleeks)
Maybe try some Christian standup comic DVDs? They're great at showing the fun side of church and Christian life, without being too heavy, and still conveying a great message.

In terms of movies, what about Mum's Night Out? It came out in cinemas last year, and has an all star cast including Sarah Drew (from Grey's Anatomy) and Sean Astin (from The Lord Of The Rings)
It's a secular film, great fun, and with a great message about the joys of relationships, togetherness, and crazy families!

Most Christian films I've seen have nothing to do with chess... However, one of my favourite films that explores concepts of grace, generosity, redemption and joy is this:

I was pleasantly surprised by "God's Not Dead" - I mean, I knew He wasn't dead but the film was surprisingly good. I did feel the death scene conversion was unrealistic but the rest of the film was brilliant. But maybe still too cheesy.

"How to save a life" was good as well - cheesy but good.
