Ian Douglas: A great premise, but ultimately, the film had nowhere to go, or, could not have gone too far without arousing the wrath of every theist religion in the world. As comedies go it is pleasant, though the humour will appeal more to an older audience than the teens. I found the accents a little difficult to follow sometimes. YMMV.
