You say you believe in God. You say you don't believe in the Church. the church believes in God. Who's right?
Juvenal aka Charlie Lawson:
It's not about being right. The Pharisees, they wanted to be right, and they were up to a point. It's about BEING. Being kind. Being patient. Being Loving. Forgiving. Not judging. Drawing out the best in the other. Seeing the presence of Christ in everything and everyone.

A comedy that tries a little too hard to be offbeat. Ulrich is Juvenile, an oblivious ex-Franciscan monk who has the power of stigmata. He can heal those he touches.
Walken is a religious profiteer who attempts to make a few bucks of Juvenile by elisting Fonda's help. The tongue-in-cheek satire does not mix well its use of slapstick, and most of the jokes end up flopping around on the floor for a few moments too long.
No one seems to be having much fun in their roles, except for Tom Arnold, who's having too much fun as the annoying christian extremist trying to bring people to the old ways of worship. His energetic idiocy succeeds all too well in annoying.
