REVIEWS

Review by anonymous (posted on 18-Apr-2005)

Maybe it's Kevin Smith's ironic (no pun intended) use of Alanis Morrisette as God and George Carlin as a Cardinal. Maybe it's Chris Rock's view of the Bible. Maybe it's neither. If one takes the obligatory disclaimer at the start of this film seriously, one can really enjoy this confection of a movie. For it is that, merely a confection. There'll be no rewriting Biblical history or secular history. There'll be no world peace as a result of this movie. But so what? Let the movie pull you in. Feel for the characters. The all-star cast is flawless and genuinely entertaining. The movie falls short in explaining away (or just explaining) minor holes in the plot line, but all in all a wonderfully done dark comedy that shouldn't be confused with an attempt to explain, mock or even reconcile the Catholic Faith. I am Catholic myself, in case you were wondering. And I play the piano at mass every Sunday.
