Papal Movie reviews

POPE DENIES PRAISING ‘TORQUE’

Withholds Papal Thumbs Up for Biker Flick

In an official statement released today, a spokesman for Pope John Paul II disputed widely published reports that His Holiness saw and enjoyed the new biker film “Torque.”

The film, which went into wide release on January 16, ignited a firestorm of controversy when studio publicists started spreading the word that the Pope had viewed the film in his Vatican City apartment and had pronounced the film “awesome.”

According to the publicists, producers of the film had presented Pope John Paul II with a special DVD edition of the film, complete with narration by the film’s director, never-before-seen footage, outtakes and bloopers.

Coinciding with the release of the film, reports started emerging in the mainstream press that the Vatican had issued the following summary of the Pope’s private screening of “Torque”: “He saw it, and it was good.”

But in a strongly worded statement released today, a spokesman for the Pope denied in no uncertain terms that the Pope had given two papal thumbs up to the biker flick, adding, “His Holiness did not see ‘Torque,’ nor is he entirely sure what the word ‘Torque’ means.”

In other news, the Dalai Lama today denied widely published reports that he called “Along Came Polly” “the feel-good movie of 2004.”

In a prepared statement, a spokesman for the Dalai Lama said, “The Dalai Lama was, frankly, disappointed by ‘Along Came Polly,’ and warns moviegoers that all of the funny parts are in the trailer.”

From Borowitzreport.com, one of my favorite satirists. He's making fun of the controversy surrounding the question of whether the Pope saw and liked "The Passion"

Re: Papal Movie reviews

So the Pope did not actually use the term "squid"?

Hey Pope, torque is going to take your morning pee, and your feet get lifted off the ground.
