Kevin Smith's irreverent religious comedy Dogma (a film featuring Chris Rock as Rufus the 13th Apostle) earned him (and Jewish Miramax producers Bob and Harvey Weinstein) 300,000 pieces of hate mail and "two and a half death threats." One of these was particularly ironic: "You Jews," it said, "better take the money you stole from us and buy some flak jackets because we're coming down there with shotguns." It was signed: "Your brothers in Christ..."
["It's a movie with a f---ing rubber poop monster in it," Smith later laughed. "Take it easy!"]
