Trivia

Olivia says to Benjamin at one point, "Shall we accept good from God and not trouble?" This is a reference to Job chapter 2. God gives all of Job's status and health in the devil's possession. His wife tells him, "Curse God and die!" Job replies, "You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept only good from God and never trouble?" See more »

I feel Sad
17 July 2010 | by stewball10See all my reviews

I feel sad for this guy, Abdullah_Fritzi from Suadi Arabia. Seriously,the name of the movie tells you it's probably about God, and because it was filmed/produced in the US, it's about our God, not yours Abdullah. I have deployed to the middle east 2 times, of course you would want it banned because you don't understand or enjoy freedom of religion.

This is a great movie about the trials and tribulations of dealing with cancer and death and our struggle as humans on the topic of a higher power. Movies about God are not for everybody. If religion turns you off, then watch something else.
