It's a blunderbuss satire that criminally wastes a talented cast.

In truckin' past so many fruitful oases, "Salvation Boulevard" is a bumpy road.

[An] enjoyable if simplistic black comedy loosely based on a novel by Larry Beinhart.

It's quite funny at times and has some good performances. But it's so predictable it has no bite, either as social satire or as slapstick comedy.

Salvation Boulevard has a terrific cast and not much else.

Starts out on the right path, but loses its way early on.

A reasonably funny religious satire that takes potshots at easy targets but is quite watchable due to the participation of two Oscar winners and two Oscar nominees.

Without the humor, the stereotypes that define these characters aren't satirical; they're just mean-spirited and dull.

There is the inkling of a strong, interesting idea here ... but "Salvation Boulevard" is itself too loosely tethered to the actual world to make the point with the necessary vigor or acuity.

The movie transforms a dim idea -- "Elmer Gantry" lite -- into comedy that's dead in the water and as dull as it is broad.

A misfire of the first order, starting with the way writer-director Ratliff and co-writer Doug Max Stone turn what could've been a provocative, gripping story into an over-the-top yukfest.

Despite the talents of Greg Kinnear, Pierce Brosnan, Marisa Tomei, Ed Harris, Jennifer Connelly, Ciaran Hinds, Yul Vazquez and Jim Gaffigan, "Salvation Boulevard" is far less than the sum of its fine, character-actor parts.

It's a stupid farrago of aborted ideas, misguided actors, lame direction, submental writing and follow-the-dots plotting that never comes anywhere within a 10-mile radius of what I used to call coherent filmmaking.

Only Tomei, as an ineffectual campus security guard and fellow Deadhead, makes a lasting impression.

Salvation Boulevard isn't groundbreaking or even consistently funny, but it is mildly inventive and the absurdities of its characters are tender and recognizably human. Best of all, we're encouraged to laugh with them rather than at them.

Silly cat-and-mouse comedy doesn't make much of its evangelist-mocking premise.

Careless and bedraggled in its storytelling and never aiming its sights beyond the most obvious targets.
