"Are you a faithless preacher, or are you a mean motherfucking servant of God?"
I'll point anyone who thinks it's just a gimmick to how fully realized both the Geckos and the Fullers are, and to the amount of unspoken history layered into every exchange between the two families. No other schlockfest would pump its brakes to mourn the death of a wholly irredeemable character or dig so deeply into one weary shepherd's beef with the Almighty. This would've been a fun movie regardless, but that's what makes it a great movie.
