Forget "The Loved One". This is the film that will offend everyone!
19 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

This film takes on all religions and skewers them neatly while being fall-down funny. Lots of unknowns who made a splash later, despite this black mark on their records. Dabney Coleman as a really sleazy business man. Roger E. Mosley as a shouting preacher. The songs will leave you humming a sacrilegious tune - "I love my God, he is the best around....if I get run down by a truck, it's not His fault it's just my own bad luck". The film is really a series of funny sketches tied together by the problems of the station's finances. So forget the story and enjoy the incredibly absurd takeoffs that only a really disturbed person could devise. Only problem is the ending which tries to redeem the story with "just love everybody".
