trailer break: ‘Letters to God’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

Somehow I don’t think that undeliverable letters become the individual journey of whatever letter carrier happens to come across them. I believe that could be considered a federal crime, actually, to interfere with mail, even if it is undeliverable. Just goes to show how anti-Christian the federal government is. Bastards.

I bet there isn’t single character in this film who explains to Maddy, who doesn’t agree with God’s will, that her life might get a whole lot more pleasant if she stopped believing in such a disagreeable deity. She should try the Flying Spaghetti Monster, who doesn’t give kids cancer.

The film, which opens today, has garnered a few reviews at Rotten Tomatoes (not enough to have a Freshness score, though all the reviews so far are rotten), but obviously it was not screened for most critics. It appears to be one of those self-distributed multiplex sermons for church groups to flock to, not so much a movie per se. It’ll probably do pretty well at the box office, too. So as an alternative to the typical studio film, this is interesting from a business perspective. But only from that perspective, if the trailer is a fair measure of the film.

Letters to God opens in the U.S. today; no Canadian or U.K. release dates have been announced.
