    Excellent documentary on Sundance Channel tonight. A faux gospel choir goes across the U.S. to stop consumerism around Christmas time. I highly suggest watching it. Different and much better than I thought.

    I think Jesus would buy a pair of Crocks and a Snuggie.

    I worked retail back in college, and I've had similar experiences as the woman in this clip, regarding verbal/physical threats from customers. Pretty sad. icon_confused.gif

    The odd thing is, this shouldn't be on Sundance, it should be on a MAJOR network so everyone can see it.

    I heard about this movie a while ago, but completely forgot about it. I don't think they had the budget to promote it properly. Too bad it's not streaming anywhere. Might have to rent the DVD.

    Somebody walked into a producer's office, pitched the idea for this film, and the producer actually coughed up the cash to have it made.
    Only in America.
    If you offered to pay me $100.00 to watch this dreck, I would laugh in your face, "Ha ha !"

    They should make a faux gospel choir that goes around telling people how Christianity invaded the many different pagan customs and traditions. When you have to steal someone's ideas and make them your own, your ideas aren't worth a hoot. icon_idea.gif

    Actually, religious syncretism has a long and worldwide history.

    *heart thumping*

    I know. It's rare to stop on a channel and actually find out something good on. I hope you got to see it. This is a winner.

    That's my point.

    Sundance is doing a program on what a fairy tale creature would buy? Who cares?

    This film really doesn't harp on religion that much, that's what is good about it. It's very fascinating. So glad I caught the rebroadcast last night to DVR it all.

    I think Jesus would buy the books 'Life After Coma' and 'Courage After Coma'. You know- to help deal with the one he came out of when ancient people had mistaken him for death after traumatic injury.

    Haha. Yeah, I think some of you missed the point. It's not about Jesus or religion. It's a cynical documentary on materialism and consumption, particularly around Christmas. Hence, the Jesus reference.

    If you like Morgan Spurlock's previous works (Super Size Me, 30 Days, etc) and if you like The Onion, you might enjoy this movie.

    I love this review I found:

    ""This year, before being plunged into the pine-scented inferno, I've found
    salvation in a new movie..." - Sara Stewart, NY Post
