If you want to ban a movie...

...ban a good movie. No one cares if Malaysia's bans Evan Almighty. Take it from me, the movie sucks. Why ban a movie that sucks?

Malaysia's influential Muslim Consumers Association (PPIM) said the comedy, which plays on the story of Noah's ark and features actor Morgan Freeman as God, was insulting to Islam.

"The movie refers to the big flood during the time of Prophet Noah, but this has been turned into a comedy which is insulting to Islam," Secretary-General Maamor Osman told news agency Bernama.

"Featuring a human being as God in the movie is also against Islam," he added

Malaysians should watch the new Happy Potter flick, The Order of the Phoenix. It does not have any god depictions or floods, so it should be ok. I'm not so sure about the whole witchcraft thing. Muslims might take exception, we should just stop sending any movies to Malaysia. They can't ban it if they don't have it.

They banned Bruce Almighty also. Although the Malaysian censor board eventually gave the ok to DVD's.

It will be interesting to see how Evan will fare. It's opening in August over there.
