I Friggin' Love This Movie!
15 November 2017 | by hfunworldSee all my reviews

I'm truly gobsmacked (yes, I said gobsmacked) how someone could give this movie less than a 10. In an era where all the major studios can make is reheated superhero and zombie movies, somebody comes along with the balls to make an ambitious, funny, and really well-made independent comedy, (about God no less) and people criticize it because it's low budget. Wtf? I read that Bruce Almighty cost 80 million dollars. 80 million! Was it 78 million dollars funnier? Hell no.

It's Gawd! swings for the fence. Does it always hit the ball out of the park? Of course not, but I tell you this- it does a hell of a lot more than one of Judd Apatow's crappy comedies and it does it with a lot less swearing. (When did say "f _ _ _ " every 3 seconds become funny?) Watch the new Jerry Seinfeld special on Netflix... hilarious and he doesn't swear once. I'm no prude or holy roller, I'm just saying that comedies now days just have the actors swear when the script sucks as a cheat. Swear all you want, just don't be lazy.

I consider myself an Agnostic, I believe in something, just not what was sold to me when I was a kid. Personally I think all of the big 3 religions got it wrong. I don't claim to have the right answer, but I do like books, movies etc that explore different ideas. What was so great about this movie is that the writer did it with comedy.

Tommy Chong was Amazing! Who knew he had any talent beyond smoking weed. He was warm, genuine, funny, and original. Frankly I love that idea that an old stoner is God (Gawd). It kind of makes sense if you look at the state of the world these days. There's also a funny father/son thing happening and the kid who plays J, (could that be for Jesus?) is a fantastic actor. I guess he was in the X-men movies but I don't remember him. I would've like to see more of Luke Perry and thought he was a bit underutilized. The chick who played the angel is really funny and hot AF. More of her too please!

It's Gawd! reminded me at times of Will Ferrell's "Elf". It's silly and wacky, but in a great way. It also reminded me of Idiocracy in how ambitious it is without having a huge budget, and also Dogma for its irreverence. If you like any of these or the above referenced flicks I highly recommend It's Gawd!
