I found it to be the best-case scenario of “what if Paul Schrader made the most Paul Schrader-esque comedy?” It’s the collision of love and fundamental religion, and how violence would run parallel. More thoughts tomorrow, but I found Tom Arnold to be the second most miscast actor, immediately after Skeet’s goatee.
Tom Arnold and his resting-affable-face weren’t threatening until he actually had a gun in his hand. His role here should be easy to laugh at but also filled with misogyny, rage, and everything wrong with extremist Christianity.
Tom Arnold and Christopher Walken should have traded roles.
