...it's refreshing to see a film that not only doesn't demonize, but actually distinguishes between different strains of old-time Southern religion.

Davis has ambition to burn and should be commended for shooting for the stars. That he had to go through the entire Old and New Testaments to try to get there is, alas, unfortunate.

Screen Door Jesus demonstrates why [Robert] Altman is a genius and [director Kirk] Davis is a novice.

Austin Chronicle

It's a knowing, dare I say sweet, little film that takes pains to let the characters speak for themselves, never rallying behind an implicit religious message, which may be the best message of all.

Despite the conflicting statements on faith and religion, revenge and forgiveness, and sex and love, the divergent arguments are ultimately part of the ramshackle grace and peculiar charm of this modest, frequently-satisfying film.

[Its] gutsy, madly ambiguous unleashing of a mixed bag of religious reactions attests to a genuine sense of regionalism.

When a film comes along that confronts tough issues and manages to keep everything real without dividing its audience, it deserves massive praise.

It's a mixture of people we've all met before with stories we can believe and the simple message that folks need to chill the hell out and stop asking the question, 'Yes, but what KIND of Christian are you?' Great flick.
