On the first weekend in October, three movies debuted at the cinema, with nothing in common except this: Each had an overt and deliberate message. The messages differed considerably. Religulous (see "Bill of goods," Oct. 18/25) mocked organized religion; An American Carol (see "Swing and miss," Oct. 18/25) led three cheers for the greatness of our nation; Fireproof quietly pointed to Christ as the savior of marriages and men. In box-office rankings they placed 10th, ninth, and eighth, respectively.
