Goofs

Carl's father-in-law introduces himself as "Jim Hunt, Petty Chief U.S. Navy, retired." There is no such thing as a "Petty Chief" rank in any service. The correct Navy ranks are Chief Petty Officer, Senior Chief Petty Officer, or Master Chief Petty Officer. See more »

Quotes

Peter Blaylock: Where does religion come from? It comes from fear. Belief in the supernatural arose to protect us from the frightening unknown. Whether it be volcanoes, thunder, lightning, earthquake, death, evil, somewhere along the line the supernatural became God, and the unknown became Satan.

Not for the easily offended
14 May 2012 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Especially if they are religious. Of course if you really look close into the movie, you could also make the case that this might actually be quite good to religion. Or to those who believe in God that is. You can always read things into it, if you are willing to. I think one should be open minded to movies like this. It's not really offensive. Men (and women) are weak, that's just the way it is.

Plus the cast is phenomenal! Every role is a name actor, even if it's the smallest, it seems they got someone with value. When Jim Gaffigan is the least known (a really good comedian), than you know you have hit the jackpot. You might argue that some characters are not really drawn all that well or thorough, but there is only limited time. While they could've done some things better, that is something you can always say about a movie
