Entertaining, if quirky and probably controversial.
13 October 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short is not going to appeal to everyone. I'm a Catholic with a sense of humor and quite secure in my faith, so it doesn't bother me. I think it's quite funny, as a matter of fact. There are undoubtably people who would disagree vehemently. This cartoon is not for them. If you are a True Believer, you probably won't like this cartoon. I happen to give the Almighty credit for having a sense of humor and I think this is a funny, if less reverent look at how things work. Well worth watching. Recommended with the caveats stated above.
