Goofs

Carl's father-in-law introduces himself as "Jim Hunt, Petty Chief U.S. Navy, retired." There is no such thing as a "Petty Chief" rank in any service. The correct Navy ranks are Chief Petty Officer, Senior Chief Petty Officer, or Master Chief Petty Officer. See more »

Quotes

Peter Blaylock: Where does religion come from? It comes from fear. Belief in the supernatural arose to protect us from the frightening unknown. Whether it be volcanoes, thunder, lightning, earthquake, death, evil, somewhere along the line the supernatural became God, and the unknown became Satan.

I found it funny for a completely different reason.
27 September 2013 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

While watching this film I couldn't help but laugh but not that I found it to be that funny but because I have actually met over the top religious nut cases in real life. They were my schoolteachers and this movie really took me back to those days where instead of learning math I was learning stuff like if you play an electrical guitar you'll go straight to hell or when you sneeze it's really the man upstairs busy shortening your lifespan by taking away pieces of your breath. Believe it or not that was what my high schoolteachers told their students and it didn't end there.

I found SALVATION BOULEVARD funny because the characters in some ways closely resembled my teachers and if I was to show them this film they would undoubtedly freak out and say it makes a mockery out of them. If however you fall into the class of normal people and get easily offended I wouldn't recommend it. Actually I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it at all. It's really a stupid movie if you consider the plot. Some might find it funny others might find it just plain stupid.

The only thing really noteworthy about it is the acting, each of the cast members play their parts very well. The film itself never really gets boring but does get slightly annoying in certain places.

Final Verdict, it's really not worth going out of your way to see, but if you are curious enough to see it then by all means. I found it funny for completely different reasons so I can't say other people will find it funny but seeing the actors in this film give their over the top performances is worth it if you've come across people like those portrayed in this movie in real life.
