What happens when you mash up a raunch-com, a christian film, and Frailty?
You get this movie.
Our main character is on a mission from God (and/or maybe someone else) to save his dying wife's life by carrying out some unsavory tasks, but that's just the setup, this is a comedy after all. There's a ton of biblical humor with sound effects and musical cues to remind you to lighten up. I was impressed by the amount of unique locations the filmmakers managed to get. There are some fun exchanges between Jovi and Lou which hint at the vast amount of history these two have together, like 6000 years or so. Jesus was a highlight every time he came back. ;-P.
Don't miss out on this one.

Wacky indie gem
Just like in old Greek mythology, where the gods mess about with us mere mortals in this dark comedy it's God (Jovi) and Lucifer (Lu) who play us. The plot is simple yet emotionally complex. It asks: Could you kill 3 potentially evil strangers to save the one
you love? So, morality, love and faith are all put to the test by these 2 eternal puppeteers.
Watching Jovi and Lou was a breath of fresh air because it's original, risky, funny and very well put together. I wish big studios would work on projects like this. Both the direction and the acting are solid and really sell this wacky premise.
If you feel like watching a brave and fun indie, give this a go.

The wife of a young married couple is having qualms of conscience over her job as a public defender, doing her job to the best of her ability even if it means the guilty walk free. Instead, she wants to pursue her dream of opening a Bed and Breakfast but her husband is concerned about finances and wants to wait. This is when things take a turn with unseen forces stepping in. When the wife is in peril, a Faustian bargain is struck between the devil and the husband to save her. What is never addressed is that Lou, the devil, caused the wife's peril. In the meantime God, Jovi, and Lou vy for control. But this God does not feel very God-like in my book. The actors are quite good which is engaging, the cinematography is well done and there's a good use of locations.
