Movie Reviews

Not quite comedy, not quite Christian
Dutiful Reviewer | Northeast USA | 12/16/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this dvd for $9 for myself and my wife. We are Christians and like to laugh like anyone else; laughter is a good thing. However, "Christian comedy" seems to be an unattainable feat for most stand-up comedians. It usually involves futility and carelessness.
In the beginning of this dvd, the actors played in a skit. At first, I thought the purpose was to spoof on secular comedy with its standard characters and dialogue. It seemed like they were going to say "just kidding" at any moment and show us what real Christian comedy is by their performances. This did not happen. They retained those overacted, stereotypical personas for the duration of the show. Their characters and jokes appealed to the lowest common denominators with subjects like "stanky breath". Nothing original here.
It is a shame when people associate "blackness" with slang, poor grammar and certain catch-phrases and buzz-words. But this was a stronger dynamic than the "Christian comedy" theme advertised. I had to keep translating what they were saying into English for my wife.
I looked on the web for reviews before buying this dvd. Most places just repeated what was on the back cover. But one place used the word "irreverent" in their description. I ignored it and figured it was just a non-Christian reviewer since secular media likes to use that word in reviews. But i think this show is irreverent, and irreverence is not a good thing.

"Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear." (Hebrews 12:28)

I like to laugh, but I don't laugh at everything. I won't laugh just because some "comedian" is dancing around on stage, laughing so hard at their own jokes that audience members think they are missing something if they don't laugh too.
This dvd was not funny. I was embarrased by their topics. After about 15 minutes I started to fast-forward, then stop and listen, and then fast-forward again. Every time I stopped, it was the same.
Just because the actors include church in their "jokes" does not make this "Christian comedy"."
