Believe it or not, this immensely "DarkerAndEdgier" film had some deliberately humorous moments:
* Jesus's flashback to happier times as a carpenter, when Mary expresses amazement at the height of the table he's making. Jesus explains that it was ordered by a wealthy man. Mary asks if the man likes to eat standing up. Jesus chuckles and explains the man wants to use "tall chairs". Mary laughs and says... "This will never catch on."
* Barrabas enjoying his release a BIT too much....
