Satirical commentary on the state of the world at the Millennium--bound to have polarized reactions
6 November 1998 | by See all my reviews

God is disgusted with the world and tells the Pope through Mary that an envoy/prophet (John the Baptist) is being sent to find a sign if the grand human experiment should be continued, or if the plug should be pulled. John is sent to his namesake city, St. John's, Newfoundland, and here his adventure begin, both hilarious and irreverent. This film is sure to offend some while it amuses others in its musings on religion and modern culture at the millennium. (A selection of the St. Louis International Film Festival.)
