Aww Jeez (2010)

Director: Michael Greaney

Jesus is a 2000 year old slacker and his father, God doesn't trust him to leave him alone in the house so he gets the Devil (a reformed alcoholic) to babysit him over the weekend, he didn't have a choice as their next door neighbour Richard Dawkins doesn't believe in him.

The story of this reminded me a bit of what I have heard of the "Leave it to Jesus" show that only exists as a soundtrack after it was erased by an irate producer at the ABC.

Apart from the Wallace and Grommit movies, there are not that many films these days that use clay animation so it was good to see this one, good character voices too and it was produced in Melbourne.
