"Jesus" gets some "love" from the NYT

Putting Jesus in Every Mailbox - New York Times: "Warren Smith, the publisher of an evangelical Christian newspaper in Charlotte, N.C., compares the movie 'Jesus' to the jawbone of an ass.

That is, it does not matter if the movie, a 1979 box office flop, has a gooey soundtrack and a British voiceover, or if the actor who plays Jesus breathes noticeably as he lies in the tomb. If a weapon as unlikely as a jawbone can slay an army, as the biblical story goes, then 'Jesus,' direct-mailed on DVD to every household in Mecklenburg County, N.C., can offer salvation."
