Quotes

Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the driving force behind Catholicism WOW, Cardinal Glick.
Cardinal Glick: Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now we all know how the majority and the media in this country view the Catholic church. They think of us as a passe, archaic ...


Goofs

The Catholic concept of a Plenary Indulgence is incorrectly described. When Bartleby describes the Plenary Indulgence offered upon passing through the doorway of the Cathedral during Cardinal Glick's rededication ceremony, he states that by passing through the doorway "all their sins will be forgiven." Additionally, Grant Hicks describes plenary indulgence as a "clean slate." However, an indulgence is not the forgiveness of sins, it is the removal of the need for temporal punishment for sins that have already been forgiven through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, i.e. confession and absolution by a priest. The indulgence allows the removal of the need for punishment through penance in the current life, or through Purgatory in the world to come.


Crazy Credits

The director would like to thank: God - whose idea it was to make both this film and me Scott - the most spiritual agnostic I know Jenny - who gives me strength, love, and major booty Mom and Dad - who raised me Catholic, more or less Affleck - a pimp with passion Gordon - our honorary Catholic Jew Harvey - our man on the Inside, who didn't let us dangle The Folks at Lions Gate - who saved us from oblivion Mewes - see? sober living paid off Yeoman - for raising that visual bar Howard - for that sweet Shore score Sloss - the long arm of the Law Phil - for making that cold-call Kim - for holding down the fort Gina and Tony - for the full-court press Bry and Walt - for no end of support and amusement Laura and Monica - for keeping us on time, on budget, and keeping Mosier happy (professionally and otherwise) The Cast - for genius work at shameful rates The Crew - for long hours and even more shameful rates Tom Elliot and Shore Fire Studios - because I forgot to thank them in the "Amy" credits and Harley Quinn - for giving me the opportunity to raise my own little Catholic
