Never Been Thawed
Top Customer Reviews
I think the reviewer who discusses at great length how this movie is "not anti-christian" is off the mark. Intentionally or not, this movie portrays all its most publicly-religious characters in a cynical light: the "Christian Profiteer" cafe proprietor, the foul-mouthed libertine Christian band singer, and the pathetic twenty-something-year-old virgin. I can't understand how anyone who takes their Christianity seriously is not going to be offended by this movie, but then there's many things I don't understand about such people; I'm not one of them, so for me it just made everything more obscenely funny.
It skewers everyone from conservative abortion protesters to collector geeks to clowns. I always say that everyone has a passion that other people don't understand and this film underscores that.
Definitely grab a copy of this. If you're not easily offended, you'll be totally entertained.
The easy targets spoofed by the film, including small-town hypocritical Christian rockers and the local abstinence counselling hotline, are ingeniously married to the completely original frozen food collection club idea, so that you can almost forgive the filmmakers for taking shots at sitting ducks. The characters and the actors who portray them are spot-on, compelling, and hilarious-- easily the best part of the movie. The specificity of the characters redeems the somewhat easy pickings nature of the satirical targets. This is the kind of "comedy gold" that you will want to watch repeatedly, and show to your friends.
