Continuity: Don tells his mother that there are no roommates in the dorms at Reed college, but Lauryn tells a story about her "first year roommate".See more »
Quotes:
Lauryn:Your private, religious, wacko beliefs are none of my business, but if you plan on sticking around long enough to unpack your secret underwear or whatever, you probably want to keep that quiet around here.
Donald Miller:What's wrong with being a Christian?
Lauryn:Do you have any idea what your hateful, bullying tribe has been up to? Cause around here, you represent a whole new category of despicable. So, if you plan on ever making friends, or sharing a bowl, or seeing a human vagina without a credit card, get in the closet, Baptist boy, and stay there.

Finally, a movie that is REAL, 21 March 2012
Author: herecomesthesun-323-891612 from United States

Having read the book, I was extremely excited to finally see "Blue Like Jazz" hit the big screen. I had high expectations, and these were greatly exceeded. The film resonates with anyone, Christian or non. Please don't stereotype this movie in with other "Christian movies" because it isn't. It's beautifully and artistically done, well-written, and well acted. The film follows the life of Don Miller, a young Texan from the Bible-Belt south who, after a series of events, begins to question what he believes and finds himself on the most "Ungodly campus" in the country. Through many hilarious, poignant, and relatable scenes, the movie becomes a beautiful storyline of a man who is simply searching to figure out what he believes. And, I mean, aren't we all? I wish more movies were like this… REAL. Go see it opening weekend! You won't regret it.
