Jeffrey Overstreet takes on “Dr.” Ted Baehr

Click here for Jeffrey Overstreet’s latest impassioned — and very justified — rant against “Dr.” Ted Baehr of Movieguide.

I don’t really have much to add to what Jeff says here, because he makes his case so well — except that I myself, in my film column for BC Christian News, did exactly what Baehr inaccurately accuses my CT Movies colleagues of doing — namely, dubbing “a movie about an abortionist” the top film of 2004. Vera Drake (my review) merely tied for 9th place on the CT Movies list; but it topped my own list, partly because I happen to like Mike Leigh films, and partly because it was a thoughtful and engaging and reasonably fair-minded movie about a difficult issue. But of course, “Dr.” Ted Baehr isn’t interested in those kinds of films.
