Kritiker-recensioner

These “spiritual shenanigans” are an unquestionably hilarious critique on religion in society, perhaps even the sole inspiration for Life of Brian, among other iconoclastic films. Despite the nixed budget and shortened running time (less than an hour), the lettuce-eating antics and merciless absurdity that lead up to the unsuspected deus-ex-machina ending only make the film seem more freakish.
