to be lawyers, some astronauts, but all Mangus!
(Ryan Boggus) really want is to be Jesus!
Following his family tradition all the men in his family got to play
Jesus, all Mangus wishes is to follow that tradition, but after an accident
left him as a paraplegic he finds his role taken away, but now is he still
willing to do all that he can to get his role back? As he gets bounced around from family member
to family member they remind him that nothing worthwhile is ever easy. Mangus also just got the role of playing
Jesus in his school play Jesus Christ
Spectacular, a low budget version of Jesus Christ Superstar, but after
finding himself in a celebrity’s drunken car accident he find himself in a
wheelchair and the school board has decided a handicapped Jesus would be
un-kosher and the role should go to someone else. Now can his trailer-trash family help him get
out of the dumps?
Ash Christian’s new film is a comedy of a family of odd balls. The title character is more depressed not
getting to be Jesus than the lost of his legs and bladder control. His real character is quite ironic (thus
funny) the opposite of Jesus, his normal life involves drinking, doing drugs, going
to topless bars, his army dad is away, his step mother tosses him out, his
mother is a professional psychic and his half sister is 'Jessica Simpson'. Regardless of his wayward family, no matter
how weird or kinky the situation is, they always look for the bright side of
things. I thought this looked very cheap
and sounded passable at best, so playback was not so impressive. Extras include commentary and trailer.
