Quotes

[Discussing Jeremiah's sermon]
Sam: It definitely shows that you know the Bible. It's just... very long.
Jeremiah: It's as long as it should be.
Sam: I know, I know. It's just a lot of... detail to take in all at once.
Jeremiah: Sam, that's the whole point. The detail is what makes the passage so relevant.
Sam: It's not the passage. It's just... if you could deliver with a little more . . .
Tex: [interrupting] Sermon sucked, brother.

Surprisingly funny and very entertaining
19 May 2001 | by (Spokane, WA) – See all my reviews

This one really surprised me. Most of Roberts' recent movies haven't been, shall we say, up to par, but occasionally he makes a really good one, like La Cucaracha, It's My Party, or Strange Frequency. This is definitely one of his better movies. Here he isn't actually the star, but he steals the show as the hero's boss, and the movie is really funny, and the characters are so interesting and well-drawn that it holds your interest throughout. You really care about these people, and you want to see what happens to them. It's a story about redemption, about how unexpected events cause two estranged brothers, one a criminal and one a priest, to live in each other's lives and learn to forgive each other. Stacy Keach also shows up, in a cameo that lasts only a few minutes (but what a hilarious few minutes they are). Give this one a look- you won't be disappointed.
