Would God approve of this film?
27 September 2001 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

Fair look at the inside of televangelists and their henchmen. It was presented tongue in cheek, but I believe that behind the scenes many of these so-called Godly men harbor a longing for more and more money....all in the name of The Lord, of course. The language in this film is very salty at times making me feel uncomfortable because the subject matter didn't mix well with such vulgarity. I can see a good bit of realism here by watching the lengths that many churches will go to in order to "up the attendance"....all in the name of The Savior, naturally.
