Hilarious AND good for the soul!
1 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in an advanced screening and was extremely impressed. It has a unique tone, successfully blending its wacky humor and nerdy references with some surprisingly stimulating religious commentary. From the opening scene, we're seduced by Tim Curry's velvety-voiced Lucifer who tells the story of perpetual slacker, Lou, and his mysterious destiny. As the narrative unfolds, what is so fresh and original about this film is the on slot of quirky gags and eccentric supporting characters, all products of the extreme reverence and appreciation for movie geekdom that this film exudes. The film also successfully rides the difficult line of poking fun at religious traditions while never feeling mean-spirited. Instead it teeters between cynical and genuinely sweet in its existential wanderings, while still managing to throw in some soccer-playing ninjas and robots, a hilarious peek into the complex chain of Beelzebub's inner spy network, and a random imaginary mech. What?! Yeah...I highly recommend this film.
