Hilarious, not hurtful
11 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Man, I didn't think this movie was just ragging on Christians, at all. I grew up as a Christian and am still serious about my faith, and I loved this movie. It was hilarious! The humor didn't feel vitriolic or spiteful to me, at all. It reminded me of the way Napoleon Dynamite lampooned Junior High dorkdom - I don't think N.D.'s point was to trash middle schoolers; whenever I've heard people laugh about it, it's them seeing parts of themselves or their friends in it. Same with this movie

  • it reminded me of certain foibles of Evangelical Christianity, but I


laughed affectionately, not mockingly. Maybe I'm off, perhaps the filmmakers really do despise Christians, but I'd really be surprised if that were the case. Just watch, laugh, and enjoy.

Also, having lived in Nashville for a while… Yeah, they nailed it.
