Oh Lord

John Nolte:
“Soul Surfer,” which is based on the true story of Bethany Hamilton, a young tournament surfer whose Christian faith and family help her to overcome a shark attack that cost her an arm, stars Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt. Thanks to some very good marketing to the teenage crowd in general and to the Christian market specifically, what Hollywood has here is one less excuse to keep ‘em coming.
Bring on the Christians:

Chanced upon the actual shark victim being interviewed in the pimping of the movie.

Surprise: She is an air-headed Valley/surfer girl, & in the few seconds I observed she didn't bring her BFF Jesus into it. (Perhaps she was advised not to on whichever oozing entertainment pustule I was cruising past.)

"Christians." Is that what we're calling them these days?

Just what I needed: another reason to hate my name.

Oh shit. We've also got Hamiltons in our fam. Weird.

Sharks are Angels?

Sounds like a knock off of West Side Story.

So if I become a Christian a shark will bite my arm off? Thanks, but I'll pass.

tigris, you don't get it: Being a Christian makes it totally worth it!

Does not interfere with bikini-wearing.

tigris said...

Oh yeah? YOU try tying the back and neck strings with a nub.

Substance McGravitas said...

If that is the person I get to tie it on, I'm in.

tigris said...

If she's got to wait for you to fly down from Canadia every time she wants to tie one on, it will interfere with her bikini-wearing.

if the movie had Jack Nicholson and Randy Quaid, they wouldn't need a shark to chew off her arm, just have her hold on to some of the scenery.

Awesome.

I know. He's a terrifically witty zombie, ain't he?

Just don't join one of those shark-handling churches.

Something tells me the young lady is less "Jesusy" than Mr Nolte says she is.

Note to Substantial: Actual amputee not as physically attractive as the poster child.

Substance McGravitas said...

But actual movie MORE Christian apparently...

That's why the shark only ate her arm.
