The film "Noah" has come under fire from Christian critics because it radically changes the Biblical story into an environmental message.
Fox News recently reported that the movie does not include the word "God" in its dialogue.
The film's director Darron Aronofsky dropped the F-bomb at the movie's premiere last week in Mexico City and bragged how it was the "least" Biblical adaptation ever made.

"We've had probably over a year now of very harsh criticism from a bunch of people who have put their name and stamp on an opinion that's not even based on the movie or seeing the movie, just an assumption of what it could be or how bad it could be or how wrong it could be in their eyes, which I think quite frankly is bordering on absolute stupidity, because now, I think, people are seeing the movie and they're realizing how respectful it is and how potent it is," said Crowe, noted The Hollywood Reporter.
