THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR

CBN NEWS TODAY.

I'M CHARLENE AARON.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS BEING

PULLED BACK INTO A BATTLE HE

TRIED TO PUT BEHIND HIM.

300 U.S. MILITARY ADVISORS

WILL SOON BE ON THE GROUND

IN IRAQ, HOPING TO HELP STOP

THE ESCALATING VIOLENCE.

BUT THE PRESIDENT SAYS IT IS

UP TO IRAQ'Sç LEADErç TO UNITE

THE COUNTRY.

MARK MARTIN HAS MORE.

Mark: 24 HOURS A DAY,

U.S. AIRCRAFT FLY OVER IRAQ,

GATHERING INTELLIGENCE WHILE

IRAQI SOLDIERS FIGHT THE

RISING INSURGENCY IN THE

EMBATTLED NATION.

ADDITIONAL AMERICAN HELP

WILL ARRIVE WITHIN DAYS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS

DISPATCHING 300 U.S. TROOPS

WHO WILL SERVE AS MILITARY

ADVISORS.

President Obama: WE

WILL HELP IRAQIS ASç THEYç

TAKE THE FIGHT TO TERRORISTS

WHO THREATEN THE IRAQI

PEOPLE, THE REGION, AND

AMERICAN INTERESTS AS WELL.

Mark: LESS THAN THREE

YEARS AFTER THE PRESIDENT

MARKED THE END OF AMERICA'S

WAR IN IRAQ, HE SAYS HE IS

NOT SENDING COMBAT TROOPS.

HE DID LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN

FOR POSSIBLE AIR STRIKES.

President Obama: WE

WILL BE PREPARED TO TAKE

TARGETED AND PRECISE

MILITARY ACTION.

Mark: ON CAPITOL HILL,

MANY REPUBLICANS ARE

SKEPTICAL.ç

PRESIDENTç OBAMA HAS

ALWAYS BEEN A RELUCTANT

COMMANDER IN CHIEF.

Mark: SENATOR JOHN

McCAIN WANTS AIR STRIKES

IMMEDIATELY.

THE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES GOES FOR

FUNDRAISING AND GOLFING, AND

NOW IS FIDDLING WHILE IRAQ

BURNS.

Mark: THERE IS GROWING

CONCERN AMONG U.S. OFFICIALS

ABOUT IRAQI PRIME MINISTER

NURIçç AL-MALIKI.

President Obama: ONLY

LEADERS THAT CAN GOVERNOR

WITH AN INCLUSIVE AGENDA

WILL BE ABLE TO TRULY BRING

THE IRAQI PEOPLE TOGETHER.

Mark: U.S. LEADERS SAY

THAT IS KEY TO PREVENTING

IRAQ FROM BEING SHATTERED BY

A SECTARIAN CIVIL WAR.

THE MILITARY ADVISORS

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS SENDING

WILL BE EMBEDDED WITH IRAQI

TROOPS TO TRAIN AND ADVICE

THEM.

ALL TOGETHER THE PRESIDENT'S

ACTIONS COULD PUT ABOUT 600

ADDITIONAL U.S. TROOPSç IN

THE

MIDDLE OF IRAQ'S DEADLY

MELTDOWN.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

IRAQI KURDS ARE TRYING TO

NAVIGATE THE STORMY WATERS

OF IRAQ'S CRISIS AS THEY

FIGHT TO KEEP TERRORISTS

AWAY FROM THEIR REGION.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

REFUGEES ARE STREAMING IN.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS MORE FROM

THE KURDISH CAPITAL OF

IRBIL.

Reporter: SINCE THE

MILITARYç CAMPAIGNç BY ISIS

BEGAN, MORE THAN 500,000

REFUGEES HAVE FLOODED INTO

KURDISH, IRAQ.

NOW IT HAS HIT THE KURDS ON

THE ROAD.

THE WAR HAS CREATED A SEVERE

GAS SHORTAGE HERE IN IRBIL.

FOR EXAMPLE, THIS LINE OF

CARS BEHIND ME STRETCHES FOR

ABOUT TWO MILES.

AND SOME PEOPLE HAVE BEEN

WAITING ABOUT 11 HOURS JUST

TO GET SOME GAS.

WE HAVE JUST BEEN TOLD THIS

GAS STATION HAS NO MORE

GAS.M! THEYç FINALLY GETTO THE

GAS PUMP, THEY CAN ONLY GET

330 LITERS, OR ABOUT EIGHT

U.S. GALLONS.

IT IS A WAR THAT KURDS DON'T

WANT.

WE ARE TRYING TO KEEP

AWAY FROM THIS WAR, WHICH

RIGHT NOW IS GOING ON IN

IRAQ.

THE NATIONAL ISSUE IS MUCH

MORE IMPORTANT FOR US.

WE DON'T WANT TO BE INVOLVED

IN THIS BECAUSE THE WAR IS

BETWEEN SUNNIS AND SHIAS.

THE CURRENT CRISIS MEANS

THEY HAVE TO CHART THEIR OWN

COURSE.

THE BEST THING FOR THE

KURDISH PEOPLE -- WE DON'T

WANT TO BE TREATED LIKE

ANIMALS.

WE WANT TO BE SEPARATE FROM

THEM.

THAT IS ENOUGH FOR US.

Reporter: IS THAT HOW A

LOT OF PEOPLE FEEL?

YES, 99% OF PEOPLE IN

KURDISTAN, THEY SAY ENOUGH.

WE WANT TO BE ALONE.

Reporter:ç MANY KURDSç

FEAR WITH COUNTRIES LIKE

SHIITES EASTERN AND SUNNI

PITTED AGAINST EACH OTHER,

THE CURRENT CRISIS IS A

CIVIL WAR THAT COULD

ESCALATE INTO A REGIONAL

WAR.

*

Reporter: WHILE THE

TURMOIL HAS INCREASED, A

PRAYER MOVEMENT HAS GROWN.

IN THE LAST COUPLE OF

WEEKS, THERE HAS BEEN A

RAISE OF PRAYER MEETINGS,

EVEN JUST HERE IN THEç BYTY.

AND I GET MESSAGES AND CALLS

OF THIS PRAYER IS GOING TO

HAPPEN IN THIS HOUSE.

SO IT HAS BEEN HAPPENING

EVEN IN HOMES.

SO WE'RE SEEING PEOPLE

REALLY STARTING TO SEE GOD'S

FACE FOR COMFORT.

AND THE PRAYERS ARE

INTENSIFIED, FILLED WITH

FAITH AND PASSION, AND BIG

PRAYERS.

EACH ONE OF US HAS A ROLE

TO ASK GOD, THAT WE ASKç INç

THE LORD'S PRAYER, LET YOUR

WILL BE DONE AS IT IS IN

HEAVEN ON EARTH.

Reporter: THIS PARTNERS

WITH AN INTERNATIONAL PRAYER

MINISTRY.

I JUST WANT TO ENCOURAGE

OUR DEAR BROTHERS AND

SISTERS AROUND THE WORLD TO

CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR OUR

COUNTRY.

IN SPITE OF ALL OF THE

DEMOGRAPHICç CHANGES,ç THE

DESTRUCTION, THE WARS AND

WHATEVER IS HAPPENING, GOD

HAS THE FINAL WORD.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, IRBIL,

NORTHERN IRAQ.

ISRAELI TROOPS CLASHED

WITH PALESTINIANS OVERNIGHT

IN THEIR SEARCH FOR THE

THREE KIDNAPPED ISRAELI

TEENAGERS.

THE FIGHTING REPORTEDLY LEFT

ONE PALESTINIAN DEAD.

IT COMES AMID SHOCKING

REPORTS THAT PALESTINIANS

HAVE BEENç CELEBRATING THEç

KIDNAPPING.

JULIE STAAL HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: THIS

THREE-FINGER SALUTE WAS ONE

OF THE WAYS PALESTINIANS

CELEBRATED THE TERRORISTS

KIDNAPPING OF THREE ISRAELI

TEENAGERS.

IT MEANS THREE TIMES THE

SUCCESS HAMAS HAD WHEN IT

ABDUCTED AN ISRAELI SOLDIER,

FREED AND EXCHANGED FOR MORE

THAN A THOUSAND PALESTINIAN

SECURITY PRISONERS.

FOR THE FIRST@A!Iç DAYS,

THERE WAS COMPLETE SUPPORT,

CELEBRATIONS, AND PEOPLE

GIVING OUT CANDIES IN THE

STREETS.

THERE WERE CARTOONS THAT

APPEARED IN THE OFFICIAL

NEWSPAPERS, CELEBRATING

THIS.

WHAT THE PALESTINIAN

POPULATION ASSUMED IS ISRAEL

WOULD BE PASSIVE.

Reporter: THE ISRAELI

TEENAGERS WERE WAITING AT A

BUS STOP LIKE THIS ONE FOR A

RIDE HOME.

INSTEAD, ISRAELIç SECURITY-FORCES BELIEVE THEY WERE

PICKED UP BY HAMAS

TERRORISTS, AND DRIVEN SOUTH

ALONG THIS ROAD TO HEBRON.

THIS MAN, DIRECTOR OF

PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH,

SAYS THERE IS WIDESPREAD

SUPPORT FOR KIDNAPPING

ISRAELIS AMONG

PALESTINIANS.

BUT THE CELEBRATING STOPPED

ONCE ISRAEL LAUNCHED A

MASSIVE SEARCH.

THE POPULATION WENT INTO

SHOCK.

SAID THE CARTOONS THAT WERE

APPEARING IN THE FIRST DAYS

INçç CELEBRATION, ALL OF A

SUDDEN AFTER THE THIRD AND

FOURTH DAY WERE PRESENTING

ISRAELIS AS MONSTERS, AS

TERRORISTS.

Reporter: ISRAELI

TROOPS ARE STILL SCOURING

THE WEST BANK FOR THE THREE

TEENAGERS, WHO HOLD DUAL

AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP.

SO FAR THE I.D. F. SAYS THEY

HAVE SEARCHED 1150 LOCATIONS

AND DETAINED SOME 330

SUSPECTS, 240 OF WHOM AREçç

ASSOCIATED WITH HAMAS.

MARCUS SAYS IF ISRAEL KEEPS

UP THE PRESSURE UNTIL THEY

FIND THE TEENS, IT COULD BE

A GAME CHANGER.

UP UNTIL NOW, KIDNAPPING

WAS A WIN/WIN SITUATION FOR

PALESTINIANS AND THEY

BENEFITED FROM IT.

IF THEY WILL HUE LOSE FROM

IT, IT WILL LOSE ITS

POPULARITY AND I'M HOPING

THIS WILL BE THE LAST OF OURçç

KIDNAPPINGS.

THE G.O.P. HAS A NEW

HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER.

REPUBLICANS ELECTED

CALIFORNIA CONGRESSMAN KEVIN

McCARTHY TO REPLACE ERIC

CANTOR.

HE SUFFERED A SURPRISE

DEFEAT IN THE G.O.P. PRIME

HEAR EARLIER THIS MONTH.

McCARTHY SERVED UNDER JOHN

BOEHNER.

HE IS MOVING FROM THE NUMBER

THREE SLOT TO NUMBER TWO IN

THE HOUSE.

SOMEç REPUBLICANS AREç

SKEPTICAL OF McCARTHY,

UNSURE HE WILL VIGOROUSLY

PURSUE A CONSERVATIVE

AGENDA.

JOHN COSCANAN FACES A

GRILLING FROM CONGRESS OVER

MISSING E-MAILS IN A PROBE

OF THE I.R.S. TEA PARTING

TARGETING SCANDAL.

THE TAX AGENCY SAYS IT LOST

E-MAILS FROM LOIS LERNER.

THE COMPUTER HARD DRIVES

WHEREçç LERNER'S E-MAILS WERE

STORED WERE RECYCLED.

THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO REPORT

THE DESTRUCTION OF RECORDS

PROMPTLY AFTER AN INCIDENT.

THE U.S. HOUSE OPENED A

SESSION WITH A HINDU PRAYER

ON THURSDAY.

IT WAS OFFERED BY JAJAN ZED,

PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSAL

SOCIETY OF HINDUISM.

AND HE DELIVERED THE FIRST

EVER HINDU PRAYER IN THE

SENATE BACK IN 2007.çç

BACK THEM CHRISTIAN

DEMONSTRATORS WERE ARRESTED

BY CAPITAL POLICE AS THEY

PROTESTED THE MOVE.

THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

U.S.A. HAS VOTED TO ALLOW

GAY MARRIAGE.

THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY VOTED

ON THURSDAY TO REDEFINE

CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE AS THE

UNION OF TWO PEOPLE, NOT

JUST A MAN AND A WOMAN.

THE GROUP APPROVED, ALLOWING

PASTORS TO PRESIDE AT GAY

WEDDINGS IN STATES WHERE

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IS LEGAL.çç

A MAJORITY OF THE CHURCH'S

172 REGIONAL BOARDS MUST

APPROVE THE DECISION, WHICH

TAKE UP TO A YEAR.

THEY GATHERED IN FRONT OF

THE CAPITOL HILL FOR THE

SECOND ANNUAL MARCH.

Reporter: MANY WHO

SHOWED UP FOR THE MARCH AND

THE RALLYw3 PREAe%9

CARRIED SIGNS LIKE "EVERY

CHILD DESERVES A MOM AND A

DAD."

THE FOLKS BEHIND THIS MARCH

ARE NOT JUST AGAINST

SOMETHING, GAY MARRIAGE, BUT

FOR SOMETHING, THE IDEA THAT

A MAN AND A WOMAN RAISING

CHILDREN IS THE VERY

HEALTHIEST MODEL OF FAMILY.

MARRIAGE IS THE BEST FOR

MEN, FOR WOMEN, AND FOR

CHILDREN, AND FOR OUR

COUNTRY.

IT IS GOING TO TAKE STRONG

FAMILIES TO CREATE A STRONG

ECONOMY AND THEREFORE Aç

STRONG COUNTRY.ç

Reporter: BEFORE THE

MARCHERS ACTUALLY MARCHED,

THEY LISTENED TO SPEAKERS

LIKE RICK SANTORUM AND MIKE

HUCKABEE, TO PROMINENT

CATHOLIC AND SPIRITUAL

LEADERS.

THEY SAID THOSE WHO WANT TO

PRESERVE TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE NEED TO FIGHT FOR

IT.

WE'VE BECOME COMPLACENT.

Reporter: SANTORUM SAYS

AMERICANS NEED TO STAND UP

TO OPPONENTS OF TRADITIONALçç

MARRIAGE AND TRADITIONAL

VALUES.

IF YOU SEE THEM TRYING TO

INFLUENCE VALUES, PUSH

BACK.

THEY DO.

Reporter: NOT ALL OF

THE V.I.P.s WERE JUST ON

THE STAGE ADDRESSING THAT

CROWD.

IN THAT CROWD, CBN NEWS RAN

INTO PATRICK TRUMAN, ONE OF

THE STRONGEST FIGHTERS

AGAINST PORNOGRAPHY IN

AMERICA.

MARRIAGE HAS ALWAYS BEEN

A MORAL MATTER BECAUSE IT IS

GOD'S PLAN.ç

GOD IS THE ONE WHO

INSTITUTED MARRIAGE.

Reporter: AND THE

MARCHERS HOPE TO SWAY

LEGISLATIONS BY COMING TO

CONGRESS IN MASS NUMBERS TO

SHOW MILLIONS AND MILLIONS

STILL SUPPORT THE

TRADITIONAL MODEL OF

MARRIAGE.

CBN NEWS, CAPITOL HILL.

MORE AMERICANS SAY THEY

PREFERçç A BORN-AGAIN

CHRISTIAN MARRY INTO THEIR

FAMILY THAN AN ATHEIST.

ABOUT ONE-THIRD SAY THEY

WOULD BE HAPPIER IF AN

IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBER

MARRIED A BORN-AGAIN

CHRISTIAN.

BUT NEARLY SAID THEY WOULD

BE UNHAPPY IF A FAMILY

MEMBER MARRIED SOMEONE WHO

DID NOT BELIEVE IN GOD.

ONLY HAD 4% SAID THEY WOULD

BE HAPPY ABOUT THAT UNION.

A NEW NORTH CAROLINA LAW

PROTECTS THEçç RELIGIOUS

RIGHTS OF STUDENTS AND STAFF

IN THE STATE PUBLIC

SCHOOLS.

IT SAYS STUDENTS MAY SHARE

RELIGIOUS VIEWS AND

DISTRIBUTE RELIGIOUS

LITERATURE WITH REASONABLE

RESTRICTIONS.

AND SCHOOL STAFF INVOLVED IN

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

MAY ADOPT A RESPECTFUL

POSTURE DURING VOLUNTARY

STUDENT-LED PRAYER.

WE HAVE AN UPDATE TOçç A STORY

WE BROUGHT BACK IN

FEBRUARY.

POLICE SAY A DAYTON OHIO BUS

DRIVER LIED WHEN HE SAID HE

WAS SHOT AND STABBED BY

THREE BLACK TEENS.

HE SAYS HIS LIFE WAS SAVED

WHEN HIS BIBLE STOPPED THE

BULLETS.

BUT THE DAYTON DAILY NEWS

SAYS THE RECONSTRUCTION OF

THE CRIME SCENE SHOWS WAGNER

STAGED THE ENTIRE INCIDENT.

THEY EVEN SAY THEY STABBED

HIMSELF AND SHOT HIS OWN

BIBLE AFTER PLACING IT ON

THEç GROUND.ç

COMING UP, JESUS CAME TO HIM

IN A DREAM.

AND THEN HIS MUSLIM FATHER

TRIED TO KILL HIM.

HOW THE POWER OF GOD'S LOVE

OVERCAME THE DEADLY HATE OF

ISLAM.

çççççççççç

Charlene: IMAGINE WHAT

IT WOULD BE LIKE IF YOUR

DECISION TO FOLLOW JESUS

MADE YOU AN OUTCAST FROM

YOUR OWN FAMILY AND EVEN A

TARGET FOR DEATH.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO THE

MAN IN OUR NEXT STORY.çç

BUT AS EPHRAIM GRAHAM TELLS

US, THE POWER OF LOVE

REUNITED HIM WITH HIS LOVED

ONES.

Reporter: ABDU AND HIS

FATHER, SULIMAN, SPEND TIME

PRAYING AND STUDYING THE

BIBLE TOGETHER.

SOME MAY CALL THAT A MIRACLE

SINCE THE TWO DID NOT SPEAK

FOR NEARLY 20 YEARS.

WHY?

BECAUSE AT THEç(Q OF 16,

ABDU DECIDED TO LEAVE ISLAM

AND FOLLOW JESUS.

THE YOUNG MAN'S JOURNEY OF

FAITH BEGAN WITH AN

UNEXPECTED VISIT.

I WAS SLEEPING AND JESUS

WOKE ME UP, AND IT WAS LIKE

A DREAM OR REVELATION.

Reporter: ABDU GAVE HIS

LIFE TO CHRIST AFTER

READINGING FROM A BORROWED

BIBLE.

HIS DECISION MADE HIS FAMILY

ANGRY.

BECAUSEç INç THEIR MUSLIM

COMMUNITY, LEAVING ISLAM

BRINGS DISGRACE.

VILLAGE LEADERS TRIED TO

INTIMIDATE HIM BY ORDERING A

YOUNG GROUP OF MEN TO ATTACK

HIM.

THIS GANG MET ME ON THE

ROAD AND THEY BEAT ME VERY

BADLY WITH A ROPE.

THEY ASKED ME IF I WAS GOING

TO CONTINUE TO BE A

CHRISTIAN, AND IF THIS WAS

MY FINAL DECISION.

THEY SAID IF IT WAS, THEY

WOULD KILL ME.

Reporter:çç STILL, ABDU

REFUSED TO DENOUNCE JESUS,

AND HIS FATHER BECAME SO

ANGRY, HE TRIED TO KILL

ABDU.

WE THREW ABDU OUT OF OUR

HOME BECAUSE OF HIS FAITH IN

JESUS.

WE CHASED HIM OUT AND HE

WENT TO ANOTHER VILLAGE.

Reporter: DURING HIS

YEARS IN EXILE, ABDU WORKED

AT A CHURCH AS A SECURITY

GUARD, AND HE READ MOREç;HáHAN

100 CHRISTIAN BOOKS AND

BEGAN TO DISCIPLE FORMER

MUSLIMS WHO HAD COME TO

JESUS.

BUT HIS MOTHER MISSED HIM

TERRIBLY, AND AFTER MANY

YEARS OF SEPARATION, SHE

SLIPPED AWAY TO VISIT HER

SON.

DURING THOSE SIX YEARS, I

HEARD THAT ABDU IS NOT

DRINKING ALCOHOL OR DOING

BAD THINGS ANYMORE.

SO I DECIDED TO GO SEE HIM

SECRETLY.

Reporter: IMPRESSED BY

THE CHANGES IN HER SON'Sç

LIFE,ç SHE BEGAN TO CONSIDER

CHRIST.

HOWEVER, IT TOOK 10 YEARS

BEFORE SHE, TOO, WOULD LEAVE

ISLAM TO FOLLOW JESUS.

I BELIEVE THAT MY SON'S

FAITH WAS TRUE AND CORRECT,

SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW

JESUS.

Reporter: ABOUT A YEAR

LATER, SULIMAN'S HEART

SOFTENED UNDER THE INFLUENCE

OF GOD'S BIG LOVE.

NOW HE AND THE REST OF HISç

ARE ALL CHRISTIANS.

THIS HUT ON THE FAMILY

PROPERTY IS NOW A PLACE OF

WORSHIP TO THE LORD AND FOR

HEARING THE GOSPEL.

I'M VERY HAPPY THAT MY

FAMILY HAS COME TO JESUS.

BUT THE MOST EXCITING THING

TO ME IS THAT A PLACE NEAR

MY HOME IS NOW BEING USED AS

A CHURCH.

PEOPLE ARE COMING AND

PRAYING AND GIVING THEIR

LIVES TO CHRIST.

Reporter: ABDU IS NOW A

MISSIONARY TOç MUSLIMSç IN

AREAS THAT ARE HOSTILE TO

THE GOSPEL.

AS FOR SULIMAN, WHILE HE AND

HIS FAMILY ARE PERSECUTED

FOR THEIR FAITH, HE SAYS HE

IS NOT ABOUT TO RETURN TO

ISLAM, AND HE LOOKS FORWARD

TO ETERNITY WITH THE LORD.

THE FUNDAMENTALISTS CAN

DO THEIR WORST TO US.

EVEN IF THEY KILL US, WE'RE

NOT AFRAID BECAUSE CHRISTIAN

BELIEVERS WILL BURY US.

FORç US, ITç IS BETTER TO BE

ALONE WITH CHRIST THAN TO

LIVE IN A COMMUNITY WITHOUT

CHRIST.

WE DON'T FEEL FEAR.

THESE DAYS FOR US ARE NOT A

THREAT.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

CHRISTIAN ENTITY.&

Reporter:ç WITH MORE

NASHVILLE.

çççççççççç

Charlene: THE WEEKEND

IS HERE AND YOU MAY WONDER

WHAT IS WORTH WATCHING AT

THE MOVIES.

WE HAVEç ANç ENTERTAINMENT

DEPARTMENT CALLED PLUGS IN

ON LINE.

BOB, MANY MAY BE INTERESTED

IN CHECKING OUT THE MOVIE

ABOUT "THE FOUR SEASONS."

TELL US ABOUT "JERSEY

BOYS."

IT IS A CLINT EASTWOOD

FILM AND THERE IS A BUILT-IN

FAN BASE FOR HIS FILMS

ALONE.

FRANKI VALLI AND THE FOUR

SEASONS HAVE MUSIC I LIKE

QUITE Aç BIT.ç

BUT MY TAKE ANYWHER-AWAY

FROM THIS FILM WAS I LIKED

THE MUSIC, BUT THAT WAS

ABOUT IT.

IN THE LIVES OF THESE GUYS,

INFIDELITY AND IMMORTALITY

IS GLOVE GLOSSED OVER AND

HARD PARTYING IS THERE.ç

AíDAND HARSH PROFANITIES

COME GUN STYLE.

I COULD GIVE THIS FILM ONLY

A TWO OUT OF FIVE.

ONE OTHER THING REAL QUICK,

THERE JUST WASN'T A

CHARACTER TO ROOT FOR.

I CAN SEE BAD BEHAVIOR, BUT

I WANT SOME KIND OF

REDEMPTION OR SOME

CHARACTER, A GUY OR GIRL,

WHERE Içç SAY, OH, I WOULD

LIKE TO BE MORE LIKE THEM.

I WOULD LIKE TO MODEL MY

LIFE CLOSER TO THEIRS.

BUT THIS IS JUST ADULTS

BEHAVING BADLY FROM START TO

FINISH.

THERE WASN'T REALLY ABE TO

ROOT FOR.

MUSIC TO ROOT FOR, BUT NOT

CHARACTERS TO ROOT FOR.

SO A TWO OUT OF FIVE IS WHAT

THIS ONE GETS.

Charlene: FOR FAMILIES

WHO DON'T WA WANT TO SEE

"JERSEY BOYS,"ç WHAT EL& IS

IN THEATERS.

"MAMALIFICENT" IS STILL

IN THE THEATRES.

AND THE FAITH-BASED FILM

"ALONE YET NOT ALONE,"

OPENED INç éIRELEASE.

AND FAMILIES MAY WANT TO

CHECK OUT A REVIEW OF THAT

ONES ONE AS A POSSIBILITY

BEFORE THEY GO.
