Religious propaganda
24 November 2017 | by MarkSee all my reviews

I tried to get through it. The acting was pretty good, but heck, it becomes just too much of a typical Bible-belt Christian sermon. Jimmy's watchers, of course, are angels, okay, I was ready to go with that. Jimmy gets a desire to go to the front of the church at an altar call.... okay, I was willing to even go that far.

But when they started telling Jimmy he needed to be Baptised by submersion, I thought oh no, no NO! (Jimmy, who has a huge fear of water right? But somehow in the Bible-belt, even the sinless innocent Jimmy needs to be dunked for some reason to "really" be saved?) but still, I didn't turn it off.

The final nail in the coffin and where I just had to stop this religious propaganda, was the hospital scene where Jimmy's grandfather lay dying, and Jimmy gives him the complete Evangelical Christian plan of Salvation, I said ENOUGH.

I knew exactly what would be the outcomes. It was all just preaching to the choir, no thanks.
