Yes, God, Yes

In skimming some of the reviews of this movie I think that some people became a little too focused on the details and may have missed the bigger message.  Were parts of the movie wrapped up into neat little (implausible) packages?  Surely they were.   I haven’t seen AOL chat since You’ve Got Mail.  A couple of the scenes where she eavesdropped on others were a little too conspicuous.  I suspect the director chose these simplistic deliveries to make the movie a little more accessible and to keep the run time down to a tight 84 minutes.  Once again, those scenes were only tools to the bigger message.

While much of the movie was simplistic I think that it did something that is extremely hard to do:  it dealt with the sensitive topic of religion in a way that was not too heavy-handed.  Full disclosure:  I am a humanist and an atheist.  I think part of the human experience is just that – being human and experiencing all that we can.  As the woman in the bar neatly says, we’re all just trying to figure out our s***.  I feel sorry for those that never get the full experience because they are looking upward.  The film also did a great job of exposing the hypocrisy of so many of those that tell us what the invisible man in the sky wants from us while not walking that walk themselves.
