The premise is simple – Jesus Christ is resurrected and finds out he is out of touch with the youth of today. Hilarity ensues. The premise is simple, but the story is silly. The acting is somewhat lacking, but there are enough laughs to keep the movie fun. For example, whenever Jesus becomes sexually excited his palms bleed. I must admit that one of my favorite parts of the film is the sound track, which is filled with klezmer music. The use of traditional Jewish folk music adds tremendously to the anachronistic Jesus in the big city for the first time. Jonathan C. Green’s portrayal of Jesus as a confused but silly messiah is endearing, even when he’s fighting Jim Morrison in a brothel.
