You know how “Christian movie” is just shorthand for a bad movie that bludgeons you over the head with Jesus?
A couple of filmmakers decided to capitalize on the trend by making a movie about a couple of filmmakers who capitalize on the trend by making a bad Christian movie. (Catch all that?)
It’s called Faith Based. It stars Seinfeld‘s Jason Alexander among others. And the trailer, which just came out today, features two of the producers, Luke Barnett and Tanner Thomason, just… reading through comments about the film made on conservative news sites.
(“Here are our top ten favorite comments from FOX News and Breitbart readers about a movie that no one has seen yet.” “There were over 10,000.”)
I have to see this. It’s a palate cleanser for anyone who’s seen God’s Not Dead. I feel comfortable saying that while also never having seen the actual movie. Or an actual trailer.
The film will premiere at the 35th Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
