Parts Person


Meet the Wylers - a family unlike any other and way too much like your own! For a dozen years, James has served as both big brother and surrogate parent, trusting God for help in raising his three siblings - and hoping for a date some day! As youngest brother Bobby turns 16, everyone returns home to celebrate - and to finally find out how their parents' money will be divided. Andrea is hoping for more than her fair share, Dennis (make that 'The' Dennis) just needs enough to keep the anarchists at bay (don't ask), and nothing would please Bobby more than just to impress Liz, the new girl in school. Mix in a hidden stash of cash, an attractive lawyer, a troubled friend, and the infamous War Table, and you have a quirky story about family, faith, and friendship. Written by Anonymous

This film was supposed to be a comedy? Exactly what scenes were supposed to be funny? Was it the "war table" scenes where everyone sits around in stupid costumes while the older brother preaches to his younger brother?

And all believability is thrown out the window when a hot young lawyer falls for a fat guy with a bad haircut and three chins. Yeah, that happens all the time. Hot young female lawyers always fall for fat guys… with multiple chins.

If the goal of this film was to spread the gospel, or at least make it seem appealing, it fails greatly. The preachy self-righteous oldest brother is repulsive and annoying. Oh, and it's okay for him to lie, he's dating an optometrist? Yeah he can lie while he's preaching to his little brother. Mr. Christian, Mr. "get right with God Bobby or burn in Hell" can flat out lie… But that's okay.

And Bobby's target Christian girlfriend is pious and aloof. Apparently all this film has accomplished is to make Christians look lame, offensive and hypocritical.

The character Bobby says it best "Who are you to preach Jesus to me?"

Yeah, who are you? You lie. You're a hypocrite. You suck and need to lose 50 pounds. And you'll never appear in any other film again because you couldn't act your way out of a cheap plastic Walmart bag.
