Great acting and production value, but the message of the film was lost by trying to please both the Christian and Non-Christian demographic. This film takes risks in alienating the Christian viewer by making a parody out of Christian life. The filmmakers kept it real and raw, maybe too raw with the use of swear words like a**, basta** and Bullsh**. Jesus' name is used once in vain. The message of the film is, "Don't always believe the guy on stage with the mic." That is true, but that applies to anyone, just not churches or Christian Missionaries. There needed to be a response to the message of the film from the characters that said, "Well, if you can't trust the guy with the mic, who can you trust?" and that would be (within the context of the plot) Jesus and His love. A truth that the film danced around instead of dealing with head on. I'm thinking they did that to avoid being a "typical" Christian movie that preaches to the audience, but I feel the writers could have presented it in a real and believable way. There's no closure for the main character at the end and that's not good. As an audience we want closure with the hero whom we have invested in for 90 minutes to hopefully see him triumph. The way the movie ends we don't know what happens.
