My review of the 1999 film But I’m a Cheerleader staring Natasha Lyonne is available at Amazon.com. here.

To say that this film is the ultimate expression of the left’s stereotype of all things pertaining to Christians, Christianity, and their attitudes to gays is the understatement of the year. It has some slapstick and some laugh out loud moments but if you are a fan of this blog you likely won’t care for it.

It’s 85 minutes you’ll never get back.

Update: Robert Stacy kindly links and provides the illustration I didn’t. If you are coming from there and want to hear about something worth reading I suggest you check out Escape From Hell. My post on it is here, my Amazon review here, and a little excerpt follows from a post on the 2nd amendment.

“And that one?” I pointed to a man up to his chin in boiling blood. He was screaming in agony so his face was distorted, but he looked Oriental.

“New one,” Billy said. “Seung, something like that. Went out and shot a bunch of people in the college he was at. Allen, it puzzles me that a man can shoot thirty-two full-grown men and women before the sheriff’s men gun him down. You’re more his time, maybe you can tell me. Why didn’t someone just shoot the son of a bitch?”

I scratched my head. Billy’s viewpoint seemed skewed, alien.

“Five of ‘em where teachers,” Billy said. “They had to protect their kids. How could they now be armed? It’s as if someone has been taking away their guns.”

A great book, you should grab it with Inferno the first in the series.

Update: Thanks to the old grouch for catching a typo in the review. Spell check can’t catch everything.

    I read Inferno and Escape from Hell earlier this year. Niven and Pournelle are classic.
