Address Comments To:
RENAISSANCE MAN is rich with biblical themes, although they are not recognized as such in the movie. There is a direct reference to the Bible when, after quoting the Bible, one recruit says, "Even Shakespeare has his superior." It is unfortunate that Bill believes knowledge is the greatest power in life, when, in fact, true knowledge and wisdom cannot be obtained apart from God, who is the greatest power in life. DeVito, in his first comedy role since TWINS, does an excellent job of being both hilarious and caring. The film is plagued with obscenities and profanities, a humanist worldview and alcohol use.
