Popcorn, Candy, and Evan Almighty...
With the new release of Evan Almighty, I've been tossing the idea of entertainment around. The movie seems to be innocent, but since it covers biblical territory I ask myself, should we be entertained in this manner? I watched Bruce Almighty, and felt there were parts that were slightly over the top. It doesn't surprise me considering Jim Carey had the leading role. Is it just me, or does anyone else feel like humor at the expense of the bible seems to be sacrilegious? Don't get me wrong. I totally love a good laugh and I still want to see Evan Almighty, but part of me feels uneasy about using Noah's Ark as a joke. I basically feel torn about watching a comedy and respecting God. I'm sure they kept a moral point to the story, though I've only seen a few previews. With Bruce Almighty, I felt as though their main point was "it's rough being God" and "have a little patience with prayers." Now, was it worth seeing to reach these conclusions, maybe. Tell me what your thoughts are on movies with "God Comedy" and specifically these two movies. You can also review Evan Almighty if you've seen it. I just may watch it to post a review.
