“Facing the Giants,” an uplifting and surprsiingly well done film about football and faith, opens tomorrow in about 430 theaters nationwide. Though the movie has no profanity, sexual situations (other than discussions of prgnancy and infertility), or violence (outside the gridiron), the Motion Picture Association of America deemed it offensive enough to give it a PG rating. The apparent reason? There is too much mention of Jesus Christ.
Go see this movie. It’s a lot more entertaining than the latest shenanigans from real-life football prima donas like “T.O.” And don’t you think it’s time the MPAA were flagged for illegal procedure?
