- Prayers for Bobby
Prayers for Bobby is so clunkily wholesome and earnest, in such an obvious and belaboured fashion, that it imbues everything with a hokey artificiality, which reminds you, incessantly, that none of what you're watching is real. It's embarrassingly sappy. It didn't work for me but, evidently, a lot of people don't mind being drenched in sap.
