Thirty-something Billy Smoortser is a junior parish priest. He exasperates the senior parish priest, Father O'Herlihy, as Billy often does not display a true understanding of his job, telling stories to the parishioners that have nothing to do with religion or that have no moral teaching. It is almost like Billy is stuck mentally in his teens, displaying infantile behavior typical of a teen. When Father O'Herlihy forces Billy to take a vacation in order to focus more clearly on his mission as a priest, Billy decides to take a several hour river canoe trip with Robbie Shoemaker, who he recently reconnected with via email.

I've learned that most people don't like to be confused by the movies they watch. They don't like to have to think about things too deeply, and get reeeeallyy p*ssed off when a movie "has no ending." To the viewer who pretty much lives for movies fitting that description, do yourself a favor and watch this. Don't pay attention to the trailer, this is not a summer buddy movie. It's not slapstick. Don't prep your diaphragm for fart jokes (although yes technically they exist).

Also, please don't be too religious or catholic before viewing.
