VIDEO: This Mother's Day, Treat the Family to I'm Not Jesus Mommy
It's Mother's Day weekend, which means flowers, cards, phone calls and/or various other gestures of appreciation for everything the moms and grandmothers in our lives do for us. And if you're feeling really adventurous this year -- and you happen to live in or near Minneapolis, I guess -- there's just the solution for the mother who has everything.
There's an actual movie opening on three screens this weekend called I'm Not Jesus Mommy, a horror thriller about a woman whose desperation for a child leads to a cloning experiment gone awry. Add a few dashes of religious fanaticism in there, and you're in for a holiday treat that is like a bouquet, a mani-pedi and a nice dinner all rolled into one big, bloody ball of filial gratitude.
Or something. The film, which carries the alternate title Man Made, caused a minor stir this week in Minnesota when Comcast refused to air TV spots after complaints by Turner, whose networks Comcast carries in the Minneapolis area. Plenty of free publicity ensued, but nothing quite gets the message across like the vaguely NSFW trailer available at the film's YouTube channel. Take a look, and pass along to the mothers close to you as you will.
