Confusing "Edgy" With Tacky
23 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"I haven't had sex in ________ years," says the elderly woman in church. "See me after (choir) rehearsal," says the young black male.

These kinds of bits in the film, while probably seen by those who produced and sold it as "just comedy" or "edgy" (that's the latest industry buzz word), really reveal how far it is possible to miss a targeted audience - even offend them. Having a casual conversation in a church about screwing an old woman? Is there any story context that would mitigate the impropriety here? Or does "Christian" mean anything anymore?

The latest in the secular-meets-saintly hybrid widget in the urban genre, this movie strikes me as an attempt to make a project about gospel music, without having to respect the Gospel itself, and to sell shock value and sizzle - at the expense of the serious-minded urban Christian community.
