They Had Me at "Christian Sex Comedy"

Posted By on Wed, Jun 1, 2011 at 9:00 AM

It's not every day that you can get disgraced former pastor/conservative religious icon Ted Haggard to make a cameo in your movie, but it's also not too often that the often terrible world of Christian cinema turns out a movie inspired by Superbad:

When you hear the word “Christian,” the last words you expect to hear next are “sex comedy.”

But with “The Waiting Game,” a pro-abstinence movie (featuring a cameo by former New Life Church pastor Ted Haggard) being developed in Colorado Springs, two local men are determined to boldly go where no filmmaker has gone before.

“I love all the Judd Apatow movies — ‘40 Year Old Virgin,’ ‘Knocked Up,’ ‘Superbad’ — they’re all great,” says Rich Praytor, one of the producers and writers on the film. “So we wanted to take something like that into the Christian arena.”

The Waiting Game is still in the fundraising stage, but the filmmakers hope to start full-scale production in September.
