Don't be fooled.
First off, I guess I should throw it out there that I walked into this movie expecting some type of humorous Biblical satire. My expectations were right about everything but the humorousness and satire. There was only one scene that I actually found funny and it frightened all the other 7 people in the theater and other than that I was just laughing at how seriously in love everyone was with Jesus.
The low down goes like this, Henry Poole has some type of mystically rare disease that they never mentioned and he's going to die. He moves into the neighborhood he used to live in and blah blah. His crazy God-loving Spanish neighbor sees Jesus on his freshly stuccoed wall. Somebody cries. "What's wrong with you?" Spanish chick brings people over. Somebody touches the wall, surprise! a miracle. People cry. Another miracle. More people come over. He goes for a walk, throws a picture of a wall. Dinner. "She won't even look at me". Henry breaks down his own house. "The blood was real". And the ending, oh dear Satan, the ending. I don't even wanna talk about it.
It was like a Lifetime movie and the Hallmark channel had a baby, and that baby was Jesus. When I watched Henry Poole Is Here a felt like something else was there, oh yea, indigestion.
Unless you're a Bible banger or have some secret love for Jesus, save your money and your time.
