Goofs

Carl's father-in-law introduces himself as "Jim Hunt, Petty Chief U.S. Navy, retired." There is no such thing as a "Petty Chief" rank in any service. The correct Navy ranks are Chief Petty Officer, Senior Chief Petty Officer, or Master Chief Petty Officer. See more »

Quotes

Peter Blaylock: Where does religion come from? It comes from fear. Belief in the supernatural arose to protect us from the frightening unknown. Whether it be volcanoes, thunder, lightning, earthquake, death, evil, somewhere along the line the supernatural became God, and the unknown became Satan.

Be Open Minded ... Religion is FUNNY!
2 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I grew up Southern Baptist and I thought this movie was laugh out loud funny. Of course, there was some predictable religious jokes. Lots of confusion & communication-based chaos with a karma-tic ending (though a bit trite). Actually saw this movie September 2010 at a early release film screening where we were able to review the film afterward. I hope they re-shot the ending, as the conclusion was a bit abrupt. Overall, it was a great laugh. Pierce Brosnan is EXCELLENT as Rev. Dan Day. Stand out performances by Greg Kinnear and Marisa Tomei as well. Not sure if this film will be a small release, but it's worth finding to see.
