Smart Southern Baptist boy swallows enough religious hypocrisy to sour him on Texas Baptist College and decides to head north to godless liberal-land (Reed College in Oregon). It isn’t long before he’s knocking back tall ones and knocking religion as primitive, but what do you know, love has a way of complicating things. Reed’s quirk-happy campus life (complete with a mock pope hearing mock confessions) keeps this story of collegiate self-discovery from bogging down, and even the heavy stuff is handled deftly by director Steve Taylor. 2012.
