Is it so hard to believe that God wants to reach everyone with a message of love? This is a great movie. Luke Wilson is told a lie and he resists God the whole way through the movie. God is reaching out to him and using other people as examples of His healing powers. God heals today just as he did in the days of the disciples. Just believe and receive. If your heart is hardened to the super natural powers of God you will not be able to understand this movie. The person that wrote this movie understands and shows the unbelievers that God is reaching out to anyone that will listen to Him. It is the free will of people to choose God's love and receive life or choose to continue in this world of sin and lies and receive death.

Stupendously Heavy Handed and Empty
I really wish I could give this a 0. To a small degree, it does deserve one star because the ending is so unintentionally hilarious that I cackled like a hyena at the preposterous "spiritual" message. If this is the sort of movie that Evangelical Christians think will persuade people to their side, they've got another thing coming. Subtelty is definitely not the movie's strong suit, though I believe that in some odd way, the film was supposed to be subtle. Honestly, I'm really not sure how the film's director would have pulled this off, as the script's religious undertones are not so much implied as screamed. By the end of the film, God is being bashed over poor Luke Wilson's head with such fervor that the viewer actually begins to receive stigmata.Was this review helpful?

Also, the description of the film on the back of the DVD case (the Netflix version) is wholly inaccurate. Upon reading said description, there's a sense that the viewer is in for an acerbic, vitriolic performance by Wilson (amid stuffing his face with Twinkies and guzzling copious amounts of alcohol). There is an implication that Wilson will be drunk throughout the movie, which is not the case. And the caustic attitude touted on the back of the DVD case? Mild at worse; after all, this film is rated PG.
