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.
The teenager Jarod invites his best friends Travis and Billy-Ray to have a foursome with a thirty-eight year-old woman. While driving to meet the woman, Travis hit a car parked on the road. When they meet the woman, she gives spiked beer to them and they pass out. When the three friends wake up, they find that they are trapped in the fundamentalist Five Points Trinity Church of the infamous Pastor Abin Cooper and that they will be killed. Meanwhile the church is under siege by ATF agents led by Agent Joseph Keenan that have been ordered to destroy the terrorist cell. Will the teenagers be saved by the agents of the law enforcement agency?Written by

The boys are served Miller Lite beer, in green bottles with white labels. The label color is correct, but Miller Lite bottles are brown, not green. See more »
You're still gonna kill them...
The U.S. Government doesn't kill people, Agent Keenan, in or out of custody.

Of course we're going to kill them, Joe. We're going to kill them with kindness.

The cast listing is divided in three parts labeled "Sex", "Religion" and "Politics", representing the respective characters' roles in the movie. See more »
This movie also suffers from the ire of religion aficionados and hence receives bad reviews on Netflix and IMDb. Rest assured, this is a great movie with equal parts survival horror and Tarantino-esque irony.
The movie does have a compact script and keeps things pretty straightforward to brief acts. There is, however, never a dull moment. Definitely one of Kevin Smith's best works.
One word of caution, do not expect traditional structure of a protagonist driven plot. This movie is quite off kilter, using characters as disposable plot devices. I for one, loved that little unpredictability to this film.
Extremely entertaining, unless you are waiting for rapture yourself.
