    Now, they're gonna have to have some extraordinarily good screenwriters to beat the greatest line ever given by an Arkie in a movie filmed in Arkansas. We're talking about none other than the (in)famous statement by Bull, Craig O'Neal's character, in the 1988 film Pass the Ammo: "....they're gonna butt-f*ck the preacher on TV."
    Now if GND3 took on religious hucksterism like that film did, then we're talking real entertainment!!

    The GND series gives the Christofascist Talibangelicals the porn they've been clamoring for.

    That all three films were shot here is another source of embarrassment for Arkansas.
