The Catechism Cataclysm Reviews

Gary Goldstein
Los Angeles Times
Top Critic
November 3, 2011

A grating and witless would-be spoof of religion, male-bonding and, it seems, horror movies.

William and Robbie's adventure has a shaggy-dog charm that's hard to resist.

Even after the movie takes its turn for the surreal, it remains rooted in the reactions of slack-faced good guy Little and the gruff-but-loveable Longstreet.

Such detours into psychotronic oddity for its own sake can make even a 75-minute running time feel like an eternity.

Taking the notion of toilet humor literally but incapable of delivering its promised religious satire, The Catechism Cataclysm is more muddled than its tongue-twister title.

It seems hopelessly without a point - unless the point has something to do with dropping a Bible into a dirty toilet.
