Thats the review from Dr. Ted Baehr, chairman of the Christian Film & Television Commission and founder of Movieguide.org, a website that critiques films based on Biblical principles and morality.
Baehr argues that family films truly flourish at the box office, and says the unholy, sexually promiscuous plot of Sex And The City makes it a one-weekend wonder.
He believes SATC is dropping drastically at the box office, while wholesome flicks like Kung Fu Panda, Prince Caspian, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull are raking in big bucks.
He says redeeming scenes like Indy going to church in the new film appeal to mass audiences who want to feel affirmed in their faith.
Inversely, obscene films that attack faith do poorly because they dont sit well with viewers.
Baehr rates all films on the same moral scale, and gives them tags ranging from Exemplary, Moral, and Wholesome, to Excessive and Abhorrent, which is given for a films intentional blasphemy, evil, gross immorality, and evil world views.
