Impure Thoughts Was A Great Idea That Really Didn't Hold Up
21 October 1999 | by (Brea, Ca. USA) – See all my reviews

Some might like this film more than I, especially if you have attended a catholic middle school. It is about four men who have attended the same catholic school in 1960 and now find themselves in Purgatory. After some bantering back and forth, they begin to seriously compare experiences at the school. Impure Thoughts means well and actually held my interest for about 45 minutes. It does explore the coming of age and how the church views going through those difficult years.But I found myself not caring enough for the main characters, as children or as adults. Not a bad film, but could have been so much better.
