I think it had a good message, but it was surrounded by too much filth. Kind of like having your cow swallow a diamond and then digging for it in the cow pie later. Some would say definitely dig, others would say, “Forget it.”
I would say, “How big a diamond?” Sorry, but I have debts.
I would also say, “Why did you let a cow swallow a diamond to begin with?”
Seriously I do hope that non-Christians and people who are accustomed to bad language and jokes will at least get the good message in the movie about pregnancy being a good thing. That way the film will have a good overall impact on society.
But I fear that the filthy language and crude humor will probably become even more “normal” now in society because of this movie. Yuck.
I guess if I had to choose, I would rather have a couple cuss and crack filthy jokes and choose life for their unborn child, rather than a couple who is refined in their language as they walk into the abortion clinic.
Actually, ideally the couple would be married, refined, and choose life, but you know that kind of good plot won’t have a chance of being made into a movie! Go see Bridge to Terabithia–it’s a great family movie–the couple has five children! And they go to church! Oh, my! Believe it or not, at least one reviewer called Bridge to Terabithia it “twisted version of family life that ignores the realities of teenagers growing up.” :eek:
