The Psalmist Could Have Told Her That

A reviewer in The Weekly Standard says sometimes it's OK for a guy to see a chick flick, like this one. I took Susie to the 9:55 showing last night and we really enjoyed it.

My favorite line came from Bette Midler's character, a brassy broad who, though not at all religious, unwittingly offered a profound theological insight. When Helen Hunt's character expressed fear about praying to God because she worried that God was not loving, Midler's character said: "Maybe God is ... difficult. Awful. Complicated."
