Ty Adams: Do you believe in the Devil?
Nurse Danza: Of course I do, I work for him.
Ty Adams: All right, well, if you could ask the Devil one question, what would it be?
Nurse Danza: It would be, why do the doctors around here insist on driving me crazier than the patients do?
Ty Adams: Nevermind.
Nurse Danza: Okay.
Ty Adams: Sorry.
Nurse Danza: Fine. I'd ask him why he spends all his time punishing sinners, that he's supposed to adore, to make a point to a God, that he's supposed to despise.

I kept saying this is "Crazy as hell" title perfect!
17 November 2016 | by missleeniaSee all my reviews

I rate this high. All the acting was excellent. I know this movie was based on a book and they did a great job bringing it to life (even though I haven't read it). This really is a Christian message. It's so crazy and amazing. It's hard for me to find a good movie. What intrigued me was the phychiatrists persistence on his way of curing his patients which was viewed as very egotistical. His lack of belief in God caused him to be in what I'd say a testing phase for a chance to believe.The condition of the crazy house was hard to swallow (lol) but again him trying to save that girl when she stood near the window where there was immense light. Still he would not believe in a God or devil. The devil played the part very well, even by bringing up the garden of eden, asking doc. of his beliefs, he woulnt budge. Still the doctor would not get this place and Satan was getting under his skin but it wasn't till the end he finally believed. This movie was watched multiple times because each time something else would pop up I missed on. His wife and daughter were edging to get to him. How about that janitor? I definitely think his role was to save his soul. The doctor was a good man with no belief in God though which hurt his soul.Really good movie, each time I watch I find some clue. Put out part 2! That would be awesome! Nothing beats the power of God!
