Mockery of religion?
2 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are preaching to the choir you're trying to convince people who already agree with you. Or maybe the title is a mere play on words. If not, then it is unclear who is doing the convincing. Could what is portrayed in this movie be taken as representative of what goes on in churches? One is almost overwhelmed by the level of vice among 'the faithful'. I come away with a distinct feeling of impurity after most of the church scenes. The normal association between virtue and religion is weak if not absent. Although the message of reconciliation does come through eventually, the plot seems to 'wander through' too much negative elements to produce that positive nugget. One wonders if this is not just another church-bashing flick. This movie seems to be making a mockery of religion.
