Disaster Movie

By

Source: Catholic News Service

Wacky sophomoric spoof of the genre—with takeoffs on every iconic movie character of the past year (e.g., Indiana Jones, Beowulf, Prince Caspian and the Love Guru) thrown in for good measure—as a young man (Matt Lanter) and a motley crew (Gay "G-Thang" Johnson, Nicole Parker, Kim Kardashian and Crista Flanagan) attempt to rescue his girlfriend (Vanessa Minnillo) amid nonstop calamities. The film is by co-writers and directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. The cast is game, and some of the gags are funny, while others are considerably less so, but satirically intended or not the humor is relentlessly and unabashedly vulgar. Pervasive sexual and scatological humor, some crude language, crass expressions, and occasional profanity; strong comic violence; partial male nudity; and passing religious jibes. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O—morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13—parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.

Rose of Viterbo: Rose achieved sainthood in only 18 years of life. Even as a child Rose had a great desire to pray and to aid the poor. While still very young, she began a life of penance in her parents’ house. She was as generous to the poor as she was strict with herself. At the age of 10 she became a Secular Franciscan and soon began preaching in the streets about sin and the sufferings of Jesus.
<p>Viterbo, her native city, was then in revolt against the pope. When Rose took the pope’s side against the emperor, she and her family were exiled from the city. When the pope’s side won in Viterbo, Rose was allowed to return. Her attempt at age 15 to found a religious community failed, and she returned to a life of prayer and penance in her father’s home, where she died in 1251. Rose was canonized in 1457.</p> American Catholic Blog Obedience is not a joke, it is a sacrifice. The more you love God, the more you will obey. Obedience is a cross—pick up your cross and follow him. Everyone in the world has to obey in some way or another. People are forced to obey or they will lose their jobs. But we obey out of love for Jesus.
