Storyline

When we meet David Frank he is a mess. His spirit shattered by the death of his wife, this formerly successful corporate attorney spends days in his bathrobe with his only real companion, his beloved bulldog, Brutus. While David's away a tornado hits and despite his heroic efforts, he watches helplessly as the dark funnel of destruction sucks up the house, and Brutus, like some Wizard of Oz nightmare - the punishing finger of God. Then, adding insult to injury, the Insurance Company tells him they won't pay because the damage falls under the 'Act of God' clause in his policy. David is livid. But then he gets the bright idea to sue God and His representatives as co-defendants. After a farcical yet poignant series of depositions, the trial commences. Fueled by a megalomaniac and opportunistic judge, a beautiful but damaged defense attorney, and David Frank's own sharply-honed legal gymnastics, the "God Trial" stirs up a frenzy of passions. What starts as a crazy, radical stunt ... Written by Anonymous

Catchy trailer ... And movie delivers!
20 July 2014 | by (New Jersey, United States) – See all my reviews

Movie Trailers are suppose to grab your attention & reel the potential audience in! Frank vs God does just that! There's a story. You want to hear & experience the story. It's also nice to see a movie with a Florida backdrop. The film has a very diverse engaging cast. Henry Ian Cusick delivers as Frank--Comfortable performance. The writers: thoughtful, professional and clever. It's always great to get LOST in a movie and catch yourself with a fixed smile at times along with getting the " thinking wheels turning. " Frank vs God is a very interesting film! 2 thumbs up and great movie/story for a wide range of people. I look forward to seeing it in the future on DVD.
