All have a choice.
I vehemently disagree with your reviewer ("John Mark Reynolds is a philosopher, administrator, and Platonist.. He was also the founder of the Torrey Honors Institute at Biola University and was the provost at Houston Baptist University. While there he helped start a film program, on-line education, and a graduate Apologetics program. In between jobs, he writes, wonders, and wishes . . . mostly to spend more time with the Fairest Flower in all Christendom: Hope. John Mark ponders Plato, watches Doctor Who, and is an owner of the Green Bay Packers. His most recent book is Chasing Shadows: Back to Barterra, which is sort-of-true.")
"Genie" Jesus. What a horrifying thing to ever leave anyone's lips.
The movie shows that while a family may appear as having no problems at all from the outside, we all struggle with different issues. Instead of tearing others down, perhaps we should look at our faults, realize we aren't in the judgment seat, pray and talk to God. Can't find time to pray? Then take another look at your priorities. The "war" room represents you taking time out of your day to refocus, to pray and to honestly and openly talk to God. If you're scattered, being pulled in all directions, cant get your thoughts focused, write down your concerns so you can focus better. Realize that your harsh words and actions heavily affect others (in the movie, it affects the child). And there are several parts that are just absolutely funny. And no, not all of the prayers get answered. Instead of always looking at other’s faults and asking God to change them, could we possibly look inward to try and correct our own faults, ask God to help us do His will, not ours. The point of the movie isn't that you pray/you get. The entire point of the movie is to turn to God in all aspects of your life and to trust in Him and know that He will always be with you no matter what the outcome. Hollywood reviewers don't really care for that point.
Personally, I think that is a wonderful message. Jesus isn't in a jar on the shelf that you pull down on Sundays. He is real, he is alive, and he should be welcomed into all aspects of our life. I like that message.
