This article argues that the British rock-and-roll comedy Still Crazy (1998) is based on the New Testament similarly to the way that Clueless is related to Jane Austen's Emma, or The Legend of Bagger Vance is related to the Bhagavad Gita. A detailed comparison of the characters, settings and incidents (as well as explicit references) in the film to elements in the New Testament and related Christian traditions is offered to support this thesis. Thus, Still Crazy is of interest to scholars of religion and film, and is particularly useful for teaching purposes.
