I like what Barbara Nicolosi has to say in regard to the new Jim Carrey film, Bruce Almighty,

Christians will have problems with the film because the main character seems to be living in a happy and functional way with his girlfriend, played well by Jennifer Aniston. I was at a junket last week with Shadyac [the director], and winced while a writer from another Christian ministry - we'll call them "Focus on the Fundamental Unit of Society" - chastened Shadyac placing his characters in an unwed mode.

Shadyac, who attends a Los Angeles Catholic Church - became passionately verbose in explaining that Bruce's character BEGINS the movie in a place of immaturity and selfishness. Shadyacs long unruly locks flailed all around as he gesticulated that Christians need to read our own books like The Confessions of St. Augustine, and stop being afraid to show human sin....
