Earlier this year, Glenn got a sneak peek at the movie ‘Little Boy’. It quickly became a favorite of the Beck family - and he wasted little time championing it to the listeners. The movie has come under heavy fire since it hit theaters, but TheBlaze pointed out that something strange is going on with the reviews.
Fans of “Little Boy,” a new film about a 7-year-old child who desperately wants to bring his father home from battle during World War II, might have noticed something curious on the film’s Rotten Tomatoes page this week: while the movie received overwhelmingly positive audience approval with a favorability score of 88 percent, only 10 percent of top critics gave it good marks.
The disparity was so stunning, in fact, that the filmmakers behind “Little Boy” issued a statement to TheBlaze highlighting the ”unprecedented attacks … from a variety of critics whose attacks on the film ranged from ‘phony-baloney,’ ‘more artificial than a polyester teddy bear stuffed with Splenda and Cheez Whiz,’ to ‘shameless,’ ‘manipulative,’ ‘horrifically misguided,’ and ‘stupid.’”
"I love this movie," Glenn said. He compared it to Frank Capra classics like 'It's a Wonderful Life' and 'Mr. Smith Goes to Washington'.
"They used to say, that America doesn't exist. It never has existed. I'm sorry," Glenn said. "I want to believe in that America. I want to believe in 'It's a Wonderful Life.'"
