it was one of the best times of my life.
25 July 1999 | by yeager-4See all my reviews

first i was one of the people that did not make it to the credits. i was the fat boy that bill used as a shield from the cops.

i enjoyed watching just as much as being there.

this movie was not just a comedy, but a close look at the televangelist, this was filmed at the height of jim and tammy's trouble, and jimmy swagard's trouble, we received script changes that where a mirror image of events that were still unfolding in the press, many changes happened before it was in the press.
