      Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times God Forbid uses a neon potpourri of slick visuals, quick cuts, clever re-creation techniques, archival footage and sit-down interviews to tell the incredible but true story. Rated: 3.5/4 Nov 2, 2022 Full Review Brian Lowry CNN.com God Forbid also earns points for not overplaying its hand, telling the story in a relatively concise package while still connecting the central scandal to the political tides with which it became inextricably linked. Nov 1, 2022 Full Review Calum Marsh New York Times While Falwell Jr. may indeed be a charlatan, ridiculing his sexual predilections seems like a pretty dubious way to prove it. Nov 1, 2022 Full Review Cory Woodroof 615 Film It’s like Wall Street meets The Eyes of Tammy Faye. Nov 10, 2022 Full Review John Sooja Common Sense Media This docu is terrifying, compelling, and revealing. Rated: 4/5 Nov 9, 2022 Full Review Stephen Silver Splice Today Valuable when it’s concentrating on this wild story, but less compelling when it tries to draw larger lessons about What America is Today. Rated: 3.5/5 Nov 8, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Geir F The music was very annoying throughout the documentary. We gave up watching due to horrible music playing too laud and at the wrong moments. Shame, looks like an interesting case. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/01/24 Full Review Gareth v A doco that does a fine job of not only exposing the hypocisy of the Falwells, but that of them endorsing Donald Trump and the knavish nature of Liberty University Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/19/23 Full Review Pete B The story is almost unbelievable that it actually happened but the doc didn't match the moment! What in the world were they trying to do with the music? And the actor portrayals were garbage! Interesting story and overall message of Christian hypocrisy in the US, but disappointing production. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review greg m Not much new here if you are familiar with the rise of Jerry Fallwell and the rise of the Moral Majority and have read the Reuters and Buzzfeed stories on the Fallwell Jr scandal, but it did a really good job of tying everything together with the available video footage. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review ziggy d The loud overbearing score/background music often drown out the narration and important interviews. This distraction took away from the film. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Gloria W The music playing throughout in the background was a bit loud and distracting at times. It was a nice documentary; they kind of delved off into this political history of evangelicals and Liberty university which wasn't really what I came here to watch but it was OK. Overall the story about the pool boy and the cuckhold scenario was delightfully awkward and entertaining Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/08/22 Full Review Read all reviews
