Audience Reviews for Heaven Help Us (Catholic Boys)

A fantastic film, one of my all time favourites growing up! It?s hilarious, brilliantly acted and is dreadfully overlooked.

An all-time favorite that I don't mind watching excessively. It leaves me laughing hard each and everytime.
FAVORITE SCENE: Kevin Dillon's character along with four others making out in a car on a tow bridge. As things heats up, the bridge starts to open and leaving the four to escape and watch the car fall apart.
