Do you plan to see "Passion of Christ'?

Do you plan to see "Passion of Christ"? Like the question says...

I was flipping through channels last night and on one of the religious channels (no idea which one) saw an ad exhorting people to buy tickets for this to make it "the #1 movie of all time." I have no idea whether or not it will happen, but just curious how many plan to see this one.

Nope. As an atheist, I have no interest in the movie.

True. I have no interest in movies that are not based on my beliefs. To this day I have still not seen Star Wars (i mean, what the hell is a "wookie"? total B.S., man...B.S.)

I don't think so, but I can almost guarantee you'll see boobs outside protesting.

Devout Catholic here, but no desire to see any religious films. Not my forte.

Also, I bet the ones protesting are the same ones who told protesters back in the "Last Temptation of Christ" days, "How can you protest a movie you have not seen?"

You bet. And not because I'm a Christian (I've never seen The Omega Code, Left Behind, or other movies like that).

I doubt there will be any protesters at the theater when I go see The Passion, but if there are I'll take a poll. I'm going to guess the answer's 'No.'

I don't see more than a few movies in theater per year. I don't think I'll make an exception and go to theater to watch this movie. I'll wait until it hits the DVD.

I really believe there will be few, if any, protesters.

My church is holding two advanced screenings on Tuesday before the movie comes out and tickets were sold out within 10 mintues for both showings.

God no! If I wanted to be preached at I'd go to church and save myself $8. Besides, I already know how it ends.

Probably will be for the first weekend. Once all the bible-thumpers have seen it it'll vanish without a trace.

I am not religious but I will definitely see this in theaters.

The movie looks good and the reviews have been fantastic. I'm there, plain and simple.
