May have been complicated and chaotic on the page but it's reduced to a tedious film that makes no impact on screen.
July 14, 2011
Yet another slam on an amoral Fundamentalist preacher.
July 14, 2011
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.
July 13, 2011
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.

Salvation Boulevard doesn't simply pander to its choir; it practically accosts it via all manner of grotesque characterizations and situations.

In this case, boredom is the deadliest sin.
February 10, 2011
Ultimately, Salvation Boulevard doesn't have quite enough spirit.
February 8, 2011
Silly cat-and-mouse comedy doesn't make much of its evangelist-mocking premise.
February 4, 2011
A real missed opportunity.
February 1, 2011
The performances are histrionic and abrasive, in what feels like a rushed production where no one had the time to come up with a unique spin on the material.
January 25, 2011
Careless and bedraggled in its storytelling and never aiming its sights beyond the most obvious targets.
