The New York Times describes it:
"Greaser's Palace," which can be more accurately described as Downey's "The Greatest Story Ever Told." "Greaser's Palace" does to vulgar humor what the George Stevens film did to Christianity: it embraces it with awe and far too many technical resources.366 Weird Movies has this description:

These absurd anecdotes hang off a storyline that loosely and enigmatically follows the outline of the New Testament.DVD Talk says it "remains an engaging slice of independent underground/above ground absurdity."
