Rated R. God would not approve.
Easter is coming, so it’s time to cover a religious movie for the Next 147 Project. Catholic foul-mouth Kevin Smith bites off a lot more in this one than he ever had before, but he still manages to jam in a lot of jokes…often extraordinarily crass ones. As for the acting, Alan Rickman and Chris Rock shine. Jason Mewes does too, even though he is the king of those sex-obsessed, crass jokes. Linda Fiorentino in the lead role didn’t work out as well and Smith’s technical style, as always, is impressive to no one. Still, there are some big ideas and some touching stuff here. Plus, there’s probably never been a cuter and quirkier deity ever portrayed on a movie screen.
