I was talking to a friend who'd walked out of the showing right before mine, I ask him how it was he said he'd liked it but preferred more heavy, heady apologetics etc.
As I watched the movie I thought to myself...what good would heady, heavy apologetics do if a heart was never moved. If it were never personal but rather an argument to be won or lost.
I understand and admire even the individual who can keep pace in crazy complicated debating and maybe some people need that first but we all need heart review, I'd argue that it is actually more necessary than the former. And I believe this movie candidly and with great humor and sincerity hits that button. I guarantee you whether you say it out loud to anyone else or not some part of this movie will strike a chord in you, believer or not, and you'll be better for it, if you don't ignore it. A must see.
