Pray TV

Dir: Rick Friedberg
Star: Dabney Coleman, Paul Cooper, Paul Zegler, Ruth Silveira

[4] A lost opportunity here. What could have been a savage satire on American religious TV runs out of steam after 20 minutes and peters out into a limp drama. Starts off hopefully enough, when a cheap & shoddy TV channel is bought up by a Murdoch-style entrepreneur and turned into KGOD-TV. A couple of the skits - an Exorcist parody, a Hare Krishna barbershop quartet - are witty, but these are too few and far between. Not even a brief appearance by Devo can save this wimp-pic. Someone should be nailed to a cross for this.


This kind of thing
makes me very cross
