The good reverend and his crew do their best to get busted at assorted corporate shrines (Disneyland, the Mall of America), but their media-driven antics serve only to underline Spurlock's add-water-and-stir approach to political documentary.

If Gary Busey ever played Elmer Gantry, he'd look like Reverend Billy, the real-life fire-and-brimstone preacher who embarks ''on a mission to save Christmas from overconsumption."

One of the producers of What Would Jesus Buy? was Morgan Spurlock, and the film is very much in the spirit of his Super Size Me.

You know that deflated feeling you get after you've spent a lot of time and money shopping -- and have little to show for your efforts? This disappointing biography, about performance artist Reverend Billy, does an awfully good job recreating it.

At the very least, the documentary What Would Jesus Buy? might make a viewer think twice about that next purchase at the Gap.

What Would Jesus Buy? is one of those all-too-common issue-docs that's so clear about its point that it's practically pointless.
