It is no surprise this movie fared poorly in the US. It comedically bit the most sacred of beliefs in this crazy country. Ricky Gervais brilliantly exposes, then amplifies, our stupidity, just as he did with The Office. Unfortunately the movie is longer than it should be and ends with much too syruppy of a conclusion, perhaps to appease the Hollywood in us. Still, very few are brave enough to attempt such sarcasm and blasphemy and, for that, this movie is perfect.
