Russell Crowe stars as Noah in the film inspired by the epic story of courage, sacrifice and hope.
The Good and Bad in NOAH – By Dr. Jerry Johnson
Director Darren Aronofsky is known for movies that have a maverick and mystic quality. NOAH is no different. Rather than a straight forward retelling of the biblical story, it is more accurate to say this movie is inspired by the biblical character and flood event, mixed with a lot of creative license.
The story begins with Noah’s childhood and quickly transitions to his adult life in a world that has by spoiled by human sin. Noah (Russell Crowe) is warned by God in a dream that the earth will be destroyed by a flood. Noah’s wife (Jennifer Connelly) and Methuselah (Anthony Hopkins) both confirm God’s message and Noah’s mission to save the animals and his family through the ark.

GROWN UPS 2
WARNING: Strong Language, Moderate Sex and Nudity (or suggestive material)
NOT SUITABLE FOR FAMILY VIEWING
Movie Guide Summary:
GROWN UPS 2 is a louder, crasser, sloppier attempt at recapturing the first movie’s popularity, with a manic plot about four male friends and their families getting into one silly, often stupid misadventure after another, all in one improbably action-packed day. The raunchy material in GROWN UPS 2 is so crude, frequent and overwhelming that it nearly completely drowns out the movie’s positive pro-family messages.
