Teresa: The Making of a Saint comedy trailer online
Seriously, this is a comedy isn't it? I just watched Teresa: The Making of a Saint and burst out laughing, seriously. In fact the laugh was so quick and unexpected I made one of those trumpet laughs where your lips stay together and you spray your screen!
The film is supposed to be about Mother Teresa and her formative years, but seriously, watching this it looks like a parody filled with cheese. I've never heard such an out of place voiceover either.
The trailer shows Mother Teresa as a young nun straight off the front of some young men's magazine, and makes you think some very wrong things about a nun.
Some of the highlights are the totally unromantic way the priest touches her face as the voiceover tells us "Sometimes, what is so wrong, can feel so right", or immediately afterwards and the Monty Python style voice of the older priest comes in and shouts "Oi! Stop it!" in an Irish accent that belongs in Father Ted! Oh that had me laughing so much.
Another bit is where Teresa says that she was told to come here, to which the Mother asks "who told you?", and we get the Michael Bay montage of images of Jesus to a big drum beat, her response is almost as cheesy.
I love the Mother's response to that, it reminded me of Star Wars, "the faith is strong in this one"!
Another laugh was the moment where Teresa decides where she must go to give her love where it is most needed. She sits absently spinning a globe and looks to above the camera line, "Calcutta", out of nowhere.
Then we're treated to this voiceover lecture of Teresa achieving everything in a place where people had nothing, or some such rubbish, which is quickly followed by the sound of a sword clashing against something. It sounds like a Uwe Boll film or something!
Oh, and I think I catch him saying it's rated NC-17 at the end.
Honestly, this trailer is hilarious. You have to see it. So far it's sitting over at the official site [Flash:Embed] found through Collider for you to watch under the trailer section. See if you think it's as funny as I did.
