I Totally Called This

See point four here. I should probably sue! For millions!

(Please note: I will not sue.)

Also I hope the actual film is better than it appears in the trailer, because the trailer appears fairly… meh.

  1. Aww c’mon John, that trailer was adorable. I would totally watch the movie if it was free on Netflix and I didn’t have to leave the house.

  2. I’d say I’m looking forward to the part where a camel sniffs the manger where the li’l savior of humanity lays and say “Pee You! Looks like this messiah needs a diaper change!”

    Except i have no intention of voluntarily seeing this.

  3. clancyweeksblog – Clancy Weeks (b. 1960) is a composer by training, with over two-dozen published works for wind ensemble and orchestra, and an author only in his fevered imagination. Having read SF/F for over fifty years, his life took a sharp u-turn when he published his first novel, Sleepers. He has lived his entire life in Texas, and lives there still with his amazing wife and above-average son.

    All hail Chad the Intern!

    Nailed it…

  4. Loads of potential here. I can see two cute wise-cracking woodpeckers and some singing woodworms breathe some life into the Crucifixion scene.

  5. Now please write the outline for the sequel: Christ: The Love Story, starring Ariel Winter as Mary Magdalene, the teenage hooker with the heart of gold.

Donna Leonard – Southern California – I like to write, read, knit, crochet, watch movies, watch way too much television, listen to music and play Drawsomething 2 somewhat obsessively, not necessarily in that order.

    Your idea looks better.

    I mean, “The story of the first Christmas???” Wow. No. But it does fit nicely with a culture that taught generations of school children to believe that Christopher Columbus was a great hero who discovered America and proved the earth wasn’t flat.

  7. I couldn’t finish watching the trailer. So, John your “meh” appraisal is high praise in my opinion. But, this should appeal to all those who thought Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of Christ” was Oscar material.

  8. @ naomikritzer – “Risen” is an excellent movie, including on the small screen. I encourage you to rent it or get it at the library; I bought it and have re-watched it several times. Did you realize that the man who plays the lead (the Tribune) is also the lead in the current TV show, “Handmaid’s Tale”? Hope you enjoy “Risen” like I did. :-)

    As for this movie, it reminds me a little of an old TV special, “The Night the Animals Talked,” which was also about the Nativity except that it was sweet and for small children and had a message of kindness and accepting outsiders, whilst this looks to be yet another wise-cracking shallow-souled piece. I suspect it’ll get little notice this holiday season and pass into the oblivion where such things go.
