The best comedy of 1999! Very smart, very funny, very capturing. Dogma and Shrek are the two movies that made me realize Terry Partchett should not be that hard to film.

My favorite religious satire with some great laughs from an all-star cast, one of my favorite performances by Matt Damon. Also, Jay and Silent Bob ('nuff said).

Brilliant cast, no doubt the inspiration for Neil Gaiman's American Gods and with plenty of humour, Dogma brings the Kevin Smith style of storytelling to life beautifully.

My enjoyment of this one, like most of the Kevin Smith films I used to love, has faded a bit over the years. Still some funny moments, but what struck me as a mediocre exploration of religion as a teen is now pretty juvenile.

It's been a while since I've seen this movie, and my response to it was generally genial, but I'm erring on the side of caution and rating this lower than I probably should because I don't think I realized how shitty Kevin Smith was when I saw this.

Quirky, insolent, fun. Religious satire that points out weak spots in Catholic dogma. To me, the overall... feeling watching it reminds of 'Pulp Fiction'.

Wonderful comedy that shows that truth lies in all religions. From muses, to angels and demons, this film is a Kevin Smith masterpiece. Well written, and pretty funny. See this movie if you enjoy a laugh, especially at the expense of organized religion.

Irreverent, Sacrilegious,and unmistakably Funny. This comedy from Kevin Smith mixes religion with a generous measure of irony and mayhem. Peppered with in-the -know nods to tv and cinema (part of the fun is identifying the sources), fans of the ViewAskew productions will find references to favorites from those movies, including Jay & Silent Bob back on the screen.

Despite some very akward conversations (Bethany's mission briefing, for example), Dogma is definitely one of Kevin Smith's best efforts. The scenes with Damon and Affleck are generally fun, and Alan Rickman is always a pleasure. The plot itself is pretty interesting, too.

Tell me all you want about this movie's rough edges. In my heart it will always remain a precise, cathartic, unrelenting middle finger to the titular idea within Christianity. As poignant as it is hilarious, as epic as it is intimate, as pro-god as it is anti-church, This is Kevin Smith's satire at its finest. Flawlessly casted and endlessly quotable, Dogma is a must-see for anyone who's felt chained to antiquated, arbitrary ideologies. In other words, everyone needs to see this movie.

I get sucked into these "tackle the issue of religion" and eat it up with a spoon. It's not a Kevin Smith thing. But debunking all these faith-mongers is something I particularly enjoy every now and then.
