Has anyone here ever watched BOONDOCK SAINTS?

So many of my college students have said that it was their favorite movie over the years, that I finally got around to watching it.

It was kind of fun and watchable but had a couple of glaring plot holes about character motivation in some key points, but even more weird was Willem Dafoe cross-dressing, pretending to be a hooker a mob boss sent some of his henchmen as a perk, and ANY guy saying yes (unless he had a Willem Dafoe fetish).

His character in drag looked a little worse than Wendy the prostitute in BREAKING BAD.

If you've seen it, let me know what you thought.

1. I enjoyed it.

I watched it a very long time ago. I even saw the sequel which is just not that great in comparison to the original.

It was fun, and yes there are plot holes. I think when it came out, people did not care as much about consistency as they do now.

I LOVED some of the deleted scenes. Particularly when their mother called.

2. I liked it quite a bit.

 

They have a number 2 now i think. You should go for it, very bloody, lots of action. My Irish side loved it.

3. my friend was one of the writers of the comic book

They did some work on the sequel (don't tell him, but I thought it was abysmal)


The original was ok as a cult movie, but I never got around to watching it multiple times (like I think you're supposed to)
