I think that Ben Affleck is one of the worst actors on the planet. I hate him in absolutely everything, and am so disgusted when he’s in movies that have the potential to be good or at least entertaining because I’m sure he’ll ruin it for me and everyone else. I was so happy when Matt Damon (who I think is a premier actor and in good movie after good movie these days) stopped sticking so close to his old pal.
For these reasons I love this episode. I also have no real affinity for Jennifer Lopez and so making fun of her is just fine by me. Plus the line, “Oooo, Ben Affleck spooge” sends me rolling on the floor.
Other than a lot of “Oh my God”s and “Jesus”s, there isn’t anything in this episode that pertains to religion, but boy howdy is it silly and good old fashioned South Park fun: pick two obnoxious and shitty celebrities and spend 23 minutes making them look like jackasses. Great stuff. For the record, I also love the episode where the couple with asses for faces turns out to be Ben Affleck’s parents.
