    The characters are too cliched to be funny, and Jensen's script can't stay focused long enough to make an impression. Where is Lars von Trier when we need him?

    Some will see this as a movie about how we're all God’s children. I saw only the misanthropic fulminations of Jensen's runaway ego.

    The movie is all surface, loudly clamoring for attention and then losing its voice.

    I found it beautiful and funny I didn't see it as uplifting since it was a dark comedy and god hates the main character so I don't understand the critics remarks. Hilarious! Full Review »

    Could never be made in the US brillinatly refreshing hysterical comedy with a covert but heart warming message.
