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.

Turned out to be rather nice actually...
26 August 2013 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

How you enjoy (or lack thereof), I suppose, is determined by your view on religion in a way.

The story in "Salvation Boulevard" is about Carl (played by Greg Kinnear) who witnesses the accidental shooting of author and non-believer Peter Blaylock (played by Ed Harris) by the hand of pastor Dan Day (played by Pierce Brosnan). The pastor tries to cover up the accident by making it look like a suicide, and when Carl becomes a liability, the pastor frames Carl for the incident and goes to great lengths to see him removed from the equation.

Actually the story was quite good, it was nicely told and had just the right amount of comedy to it without becoming too much. The laughs that were here in the movie were really nicely earned and well placed. Director George Ratliff managed to put together a rather nicely told movie here.

However, what really carried the movie was the performances put on by the people on the cast list; the actors and actresses really did nice jobs with their characters. And these characters were really nicely detailed, nicely fleshed out and portrayed in manners that made them come off as characters the audience can relate to. I initially sat down to watch this movie because I enjoy the work of Jennifer Connelly, although her role in this movie was only a supporting one.

If you are looking for comedies that will cause you to laugh until tear trickle down your cheeks, then "Salvation Boulevard" might not be the best of choices. But, however, if you enjoy a light-hearted drama that is spiced up with some comedy and great acting performances, then by all means, sit down and watch "Salvation Boulevard".
