Goofs

When Danny arrives at the Whitey crime scene, the police let him under the police tape, into the crime scene and allow him to physically touch the body. In reality this would never ever be allowed since it would compromise the crime scene in every way imaginable. See more »

Quotes

Kathy Quinn: It's your fucking fault. It's your fucking fault I'm here. It's your fucking fault and I hate you, I fucking hate you, all of my fucking life. I want you to remember. I want you to remember right now what I look like. And I want you to know - no, don't touch me! No one can come here.

Mean Boston streets
2 March 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

"Southie" is worth a look. We have seen this movie before, only that now instead of being about Italian-Americans, it depicts Irish-Americans in Boston. As directed by John Shea, it misses the mark, but it shows a director who shows a lot of promise, as we already know him as an excellent film actor.

The film has an improvised look, which might have been the case, but we'll never know. The different Boston heavy accents stand in the way for enjoying it much more, in my humble opinion.

Donnie Wahlberg shows his usual intensity. Rose McGowan, as Kathy, shows she has the potential to do bigger and better things. As the Quinn matriarch, it was a pleasure to see Anne Meara, a wonderful actress and a great human being in real life.

Let's hope Mr. Shea will come out with a better film the next time out.
