The MacManus brothers are living a quiet life in Ireland with their father, but when they learn that their beloved priest has been killed by mob forces, they go back to Boston to bring justice to those responsible and avenge the priest.
Sean Patrick Flanery,
The rags-to-riches-to-rags story of Troy Duffy, a blue collar Boston twenty something that struck a dream movie deal with Miramax in 1997 to direct the $15 million project "Boondock Saints" from his own script. It was a deal that received worldwide attention. But when Miramax jumped ship and put the film in turnaround, Duffy's overnight success soon starts to crash and burn.Written by

Troy Duffy has disavowed this documentary, stating that directors Tony Montana and Mark Brian Smith left many things out and "Their anger at me overrode their judgment as filmmakers. That's the tragedy of it. And they stabbed everybody who ever helped them in the back." See more »
I gave this movie 9 of out 10 because it gave me great pleasure in the end to see the outcome and downfall of an arrogant, foul-mouthed, fat, dirty, self-centered fool. The other delight is knowing that his downfall is taped and recorded - every word, every damning phrase, every ridiculous self-centered comment all on tape for all to see and enjoy. I wonder if Duffy even has enough money now for a Blockbuster membership to rent this sad depiction of a very sad man - himself. He had everything - incredible luck, family, friends, tremendous support, talent (although this is only proved by his movie not his actions in the documentary) and several chances but he chose to crap all over every single one of them till he ended up sadly where he deserves - with no one, going no where and seeing no plausible way out of it. I would never wish ill on anyone but there is a sweet justice in seeing an arrogant, sad and vain fool get what he deserves in the end. Stacey Brooks, Atlanta, Georgia
