The man who sued God.

Who here has watched "the man who Sued God"?

It is a British comedy-drama starring Billy Connolly. It is about a man who has his boat destroyed by a storm. He was insured, however they refuse to pay out because it was destroyed by "an act of God". He refuses to accept that so he takes the insurance company to court, which has a wider implication of the British legal system officially recognising that God doesn't exist.

Very funny film that deals with serious issues.

I hadn't seen it but it's apparently on utube...
I notice he's "Sir" Billy Connelly now. That's a laugh too, if thoroughly deserved.
