I tried watching The Last Temptation of Christ and was too bored to stick with it. I changed the channel after about 15 minutes. It's trash, at least the first 15 minutes. A movie critic who wrote the book "Hollywood vs. America" said that while sitting in a room full of critics watching the Last Temptation everyone was laughing at the lousy movie and just cutting up on how dumb the whole thing was. Then, a few days later, this same guy read the write up in the paper of one of the guys dismissing it so openly in the room yet this guy gave it a middle of the road presentation. When asked why when the movie was clearly trash, this guy said that he can't afford to be lumped in with the religious right and if he trashes the movie than his reputation would be affected.
