Dogma is an absolutely insane (plotwise) and brilliant (scriptwise) satire of all things religion and spirituality. Along with some irreverent jokes, the film actually makes some great points about religion itself and the ensemble cast performances are among some of the finest of Smith's movies.

There are some clever things at work here.The source of the humor doesn't come from the most obvious of places. It took me a couple of viewings to enjoy it, but it's now grown on me.

When a pair of fallen angels discover a loophole that means they could re-enter heaven, the last descendant of Christ and a motley assortment of supernatural helpers set out to stop them before they cause the end of all creation. Fair play to Kevin Smith for this brave attempt at a deconstruction of biblical mythology because it's quite a nice idea and obviously risked a backlash from the usual assortment of religious nutters. The problem however is that although he clearly did his homework and made sure he got all his facts straight, a lot of the material he used is lost on anyone who doesn't go to Catholic Bible class and so much of the script is spent explaining the stories and characters he is sending up. Unfortunately, if you have to explain why a joke is funny, that means it isn't …

Bartleby (Ben Affleck), a watcher, and Loki (Matt Damon), the former Angel of Death were exiled in Wisconsin and have plans of passing through the church in New Jersey. The voice of God Metatron (Alan Rickman) seeks the last person who can save the whole of existence. He appears infront of Bethany Sloane’s (Linda Fiorentino) bedroom. After conversing, she discovers that she is adied by 2 prophets Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewesand Kevin Smith), 13th apostle Rufus (Chris Rock) and a muse Serendipity(Salma Hayek). God (Alanis Morissette) rights everything that was wronged. Some quotes on the flick: Bartleby – “The lesson must be taught. All are accountable … even God.” Azreal – “It's a human construct! But true to his irresponsible nature, man won't own up to being its engineer, so …

Now I am catholic, and most catolic believe that this movie is mean and offensive. I understand that but really I have to say this was funny as shit. To me i think everyone is in their A- game. Ben Affleck is funny, we see Matt Damon not being Serious than his other movie. Jay and silent Bob are once again another home run even though Silent Bob has maybe the least amount of words his says throughout this movie. The humor is hilarious like how Jesus is black and the not remenber thirtenth disciple is black too but isn't in the Bible or how god is actually a woman. All of this is actually hilarious and I defintely should say you should check it out. Now even though Already gave a rating to this review already but just for the hell it, give a much different rating out of 10.
