The story portrayed an working class Irish-American family in South Boston. That is an interesting start, but as usual, Hollywood butchered and sterlized culture. I grew up in that area. It was obvious those actors and writers had never visited South Boston, nor had they ever met anyone from South Boston. South Boston is a rough place that has a distinct East Coast character. I have respect for David Lauria, but even he did not research his role that well. The writing was atrocious. The jokes were force-fed.
