Dogma -- It Kinda Sucked

I feel that way about "Dogma" -- EVERYONE thinks it's so edgy and hilarious. (shrug) Seemed fairly dull and typical to me.

It was almost like Kevin Smith sat down and said, "Okay! You know how everyone thinks God is, like, a man and has a white beard and is all serious? Check it out, what if we did, like, the total opposite of that? We make God a chick and instead of being all serious and **** we make her really silly and goofy and have her do cartwheels and wear a tutu! Wouldn't that be EDGY???"

Um, not really. Just doing the opposite of what's expected isn't necessarily "edgy" or "interesting" really.

Ugh. And Jay and Silent Bob! Same concept, wasn't it? Just do the opposite of what their characters are normally known for. "Jay & Silent Bob get religion! How crazy is that!?! EDGY!"

It was ok seeing it once, but I didn't like it enough to want to watch it again.

Kevin Smith movies tend to be endearing in an entirely incompetent fashion, like watching your best friends' film project which is only entertaining because you know the guy.<br />

Still, I'd hold up Damon's diatribe against religion and Carlin's Cardinal Glick speech against anything.

It had a few moments, but overall it was pretty limp.

You don't even like Buddy Christ?? You must have chuckled to yourself a tiny teeny bit on that one. <br />
I do admit that it is not one of Kevin Smith's best movies.
