Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.

Loki references Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There", and claims the novel is a criticism of organized religion. Not only does this cause the nun to abandon her calling, but it is ironic, in that Carroll was a conservative Christian, who openly defended Christian doctrines, and advocated the teachings of Christ. Loki then comments that he enjoys such pranks when directed at the clergy. It can therefore be noted that in the Norse mythology, Loki is a cheeky trickster god. See more »

Ladies and Gentlemen, the driving force behind Catholicism WOW, Cardinal Glick.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now we all know how the majority and the media in this country view the Catholic church. They think of us as a passe, archaic institution. People find the Bible obtuse... even hokey. Now in an effort to disprove all that the church has appointed this year as a time of renewal... both of faith and of style. For example, the crucifix. While it has been a time honored ...

The director would like to thank: God - whose idea it was to make both this film and me Scott - the most spiritual agnostic I know Jenny - who gives me strength, love, and major booty Mom and Dad - who raised me Catholic, more or less Affleck - a pimp with passion Gordon - our honorary Catholic Jew Harvey - our man on the Inside, who didn't let us dangle The Folks at Lions Gate - who saved us from oblivion Mewes - see? sober living paid off Yeoman - for raising that visual bar Howard - for that sweet Shore score Sloss - the long arm of the Law Phil - for making that cold-call Kim - for holding down the fort Gina and Tony - for the full-court press Bry and Walt - for no end of support and amusement Laura and Monica - for keeping us on time, on budget, and keeping Mosier happy (professionally and otherwise) The Cast - for genius work at shameful rates The Crew - for long hours and even more shameful rates Tom Elliot and Shore Fire Studios - because I forgot to thank them in the "Amy" credits and Harley Quinn - for giving me the opportunity to raise my own little Catholic See more »
At the end of Loki and Bartelby's discussion of the arch's ability to cleanse the soul of all sin, in the DVD version Loki says, "If I had a dick, I'd go get laid." In the original theatrical version, the line was, "If I had a dick, I'd masturbate," referring to the Catholic belief that masturbation is a worse sin than fornication. (Essentially, this is because fornication can lead to marriage and procreation, but masturbation cannot.) See more »

I have always loved Kevin Smith's style of directing and this film has re-affirmed my belief that he is one of the top directors in the film industry at the moment. Dogma's topic was a very sensitive one and could have been misused but Kevin Smith has dealt with the subject perfectly. Anyone who has critisized Dogma for being offensive has really not understood the film. Dogma is full of excellent moments, not least Alanis Morissette who I thought was fabulous in her small but important role as 'God'. All the performances were excellent and the actors complimented each other superbly. Overall this film has a mixture of everything and its underlying message is one which should reach everyone.
