National Lampoon's Gold Diggers

By

Source: Catholic News Service

Atrociously unfunny comedy about two twenty-something numskulls (Will Friedle and Chris Owen) who scheme to wed a pair of elderly sisters (Louise Lasser and Renee Taylor), then kill them for their inheritance. What they don't realize is that the geriatric heiresses are actually broke and are only marrying the greedy gigolos so they can knock them off and collect on the life insurance. Full of vulgar sight gags, this witless and woefully directed clunker by Gary Preisler should be declared a "National" disaster. Recurring lewd sexual situations and humor, sporadic violence, drug content, as well as some crass language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.

Daniel Brottier: Daniel spent most of his life in the trenches—one way or another. 
<p>Born in France in 1876, Daniel was ordained in 1899 and began a teaching career. That didn’t satisfy him long. He wanted to use his zeal for the gospel far beyond the classroom. He joined the missionary Congregation of the Holy Spirit, which sent him to Senegal, West Africa. After eight years there, his health was suffering. He was forced to return to France, where he helped raise funds for the construction of a new cathedral in Senegal. </p><p>At the outbreak of World War I Daniel became a volunteer chaplain and spent four years at the front. He did not shrink from his duties. Indeed, he risked his life time and again in ministering to the suffering and dying. It was miraculous that he did not suffer a single wound during his 52 months in the heart of battle. </p><p>After the war he was invited to help establish a project for orphaned and abandoned children in a Paris suburb. He spent the final 13 years of his life there. He died in 1936 and was beatified by Pope John Paul II in Paris only 48 years later.</p> American Catholic Blog The simplest thing to do is to receive and accept that fact of our humanity gratefully and gracefully. We make mistakes. We forget. We get tired. But it is the Spirit who is leading us through this desert and the Spirit who remains with us there.
