I accidentally came across this project. I do not fully understand what really interested me - the title, the abstract or the poster. But I firmly decided to spend 4 hours of my time watching this video.
And he did not regret it.
It's hard for me to call what I watched a comedy. To be honest, I smiled only in two moments and never once laughed out loud.
But there is something in this film. The picture is not full of philosophical meanings about the meaning of being and true friendship. The characters make you feel for them. Perhaps you can see yourself in them - an adventurous and talented person who cannot or does not want to put all of himself into business or simply find his niche in life.
It's a 7/10 and not a point below. I recommend watching.

The trailer looked quite hilarious, the movie however was NOT.
NOT funny. Then why did it look funny in the trailer? Because the idea for the story was kinda funny.
The bad: the 2 leading actors are bland. Way below average. AND they do not have any comical skills whatsoever.
More bad: a nice trailer can be made out of anything worthless, so it goes to show, but a really funny movie is hard work and you need a GREAT WRITER and GREAT ACTORS as a bare minimum. This movie lacked both.

Amusing, but a bit slow.
You know the setup: a couple of losers decide to make a Christian movie, because those make money no matter how bad they are. It's an entertaining premise for those of us who are constantly scratching their heads over the fact that Kirk Cameron is somehow worth (checks google...) No, really? $20M! How can that possibly be?!?
This movie is to Christian cinema what the "Faith +1" episode of South Park was to Christian music; however, that episode was 30 minutes long, and these guys have a hard time stretching the concept to fill 90 minutes. Don't get me wrong, it definitely has its moments, but it really starts to drag in the second half.
Also, whereas Parker and Stone have mastered the art of making biting satire while still somehow not being "mean", this movie takes the more traditional route of pulling punches, which really takes the edge off.
Finally, they really pull a bait and switch with David Koechner (Champ on Anchorman). He's barely in the movie. In fact, most of his scenes are in the trailer.
So, worth watching, but maybe wait until it's free.
