What are Mira Sorvino, Lee Majors, and Cybill Shepherd doing in this self-pitying Christian version of ‘Crash’?

Published

on

The new, Christian-themed movie “Do You Believe?” might be titled more accurately, “Do You Remember?”

The film, which was written by “God’s Not Dead” screenwriters Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon, features a host of underemployed actors and actresses who audiences might recognize from decades-old movies and TV shows.

Ted McGinley plays the preacher-narrator of the movie – described as “’Crash’ for the Christian cinema” – that asks, “If you ever were accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?”

The movie also features Oscar winner Mira Sorvino, Sean Astin, Delroy Lindo, Brian Bosworth, Lee Majors, and Cybil Shepherd.

In one of the interconnected plotlines, Liam Matthews plays a born-again EMT who proselytizes to a dying man instead of attempting life-saving maneuvers, and he’s sued by the secular humanist widow and her religion-hating attorney.

“You don’t have to be a militant secularist like nasty lawyer Andrea (Andrea Logan White) — who threatens to take Bobby for all he has after he converts a dying atheist — to wonder if Bobby hasn’t crossed the legitimate line between church and state by evangelizing on the Windy City dime,” wrote John Mulderig for Catholic News Service.

Reviews for the film, which was released Friday, have so far been brutal, with one critic describing it as “subtle as a sledgehammer to the toes and only slightly more entertaining.”

Other critics slammed “Do You Believe?” as “a self-aggrandizing sermon that preaches only to the faithful.”

MSNBC’s ‘demotion’ of ‘feckless’ Chuck Todd celebrated: ‘Hurray! More Nicolle, less Chuck’

Published

on

MSNBC host Chuck Todd was moved to an earlier timeslot where his show, "Meet the Press Daily," will likely earn lower ratings. Meanwhile, Nicolle Wallace seems to have been promoted to a two-hour timeslot leading into primetime.

Wallace, who has extensive experience in Washington, previously served in George W. Bush's White House until abandoning the GOP as the era of Trump came to power.

Todd has made several missteps where he's been unwilling to press GOP leaders who lie openly and obviously on camera.

George Conway blasts ‘blundering cheat’ Trump in new op-ed: ‘His name should live in infamy’

Published

on

Prominent conservative attorney George T. Conway III has written yet another Washington Post op-ed blasting President Donald Trump.

"If there’s one thing we know about President Trump, it’s that he lies and he cheats. Endlessly," Conway wrote. "And shamelessly. But still, mostly, incompetently."

"So it should have come as no surprise that Trump finally went where no U.S. president had ever gone before. In a tweet last week, he actually suggested that the country 'Delay the Election.' That trial balloon was a brazen effort to see if he can defraud his way into four more years in the White House," he explained. "And why not try? After all, Trump has managed to swindle his way through life, on matters large and small, essential and trivial."
