Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
A comedy about a veteran NYPD cop whose rare baseball card is stolen. Since it's his only hope to pay for his daughter's upcoming wedding, he recruits his partner to track down the thief, a memorabilia-obsessed gangster.

Due to the controversy of the film, Disney was having doubts about releasing the film, at which point Mirimax's Harvey Weinstein personally brought the project from Miramax and sent it to Lion's Gate Films. See more »
Protestants usually acknowledge that Mary was a virgin only until after Jesus' birth. Four brothers of Jesus are named in the Bible: James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon. However, Catholic tradition insists that these four (and some sisters also mentioned in the text) were children that Joseph had by a prior wife, thus maintaining the Perpetual Virginity of Mary.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the driving force behind Catholicism WOW, Cardinal Glick.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now we all know how the majority and the media in this country view the Catholic church. They think of us as a passe, archaic institution.

I have always loved Kevin Smith's style of directing and this film has re-affirmed my belief that he is one of the top directors in the film industry at the moment. Dogma's topic was a very sensitive one and could have been misused but Kevin Smith has dealt with the subject perfectly. Anyone who has critisized Dogma for being offensive has really not understood the film. Dogma is full of excellent moments, not least Alanis Morissette who I thought was fabulous in her small but important role as 'God'. All the performances were excellent and the actors complimented each other superbly. Overall this film has a mixture of everything and its underlying message is one which should reach everyone.
