So glad I watched the film before reading the reviews. Especially touching was the bewilderment that a lost soul trying to find some path (Greg Kinnear) when faced with hypocrisy, corruption and outright lies. It was refreshing to find a charismatic preacher (Pierce Brosnan) who actually seems to believe what he says, or has nearly convinced himself. The rest of the cast deserved more fully developed characters, with that this might have been a truly exceptional comedy.
A funny, but less than hilarious, satire of evangelical religious leaders and their megachurch followers. An excellent cast all do a fine job in their roles but perhaps the targets of the humor are simply too easy for it to be as funny as I would have hoped. Not great but enjoyable.
"Salvation Boulevard" starts with a debate between noted atheist intellectual Peter Blaylock(Ed Harris) and Pastor Dan Day(Pierce Brosnan) of the Third Millennium Church. After the show, Peter and Dan have a drink in Peter's office where Dan accidentally shoots Peter with an antique gun, which is witnessed by Carl(Greg Kinnear), one of Dan's followers. While Dan seeks to cover it up before having a terrible experience watching a Tom Cruise movie, Carl tries to do the right thing which leads Jerry(Jim Gaffigan) to try to go old testament on him.
"Salvation Boulevard" is a frustrating near miss that a game cast does what it can with sketchily drawn characters but to no avail. Evangelical religion is such low hanging fruit these days that one has to really work at it to have something new to say, and a multiplex showing religious films will just not cut it. And you know you're in trouble when the best laugh of the entire movie and perhaps the only true one comes in the endnotes.
A decent effort to parody the myriad of church organisations and their devotees in bible-belt land. Pierce Brosnan gets the sleaze level just about right for his pastor and although its not belly-laugh funny its joyful enough to see the lengths the array of characters go to to protect their leader. That said the story is all over the place at times and could have been directed better than it is.
An open mind movie for open mind people (not fan/freak) based on a book of the same name. It has black/dark comedy, a bit of blood/violence (kind of comical) and a very twisted ending. Is worth the watch if you are bored or need some 7th Art inspiration on this genre. - 3 stars of 5 (sometimes is slow and the score is very saint...not my taste of music).

I thought this was funny, certainly not the 25% rating on Flixster.... but it is formulaic and the anti religious undertones probably put a lot of people off. In any case this is a solid dark comedy though it does not stand out in any special way.
I was expecting so much more - was hoping this was one of those hidden gems -- I was wrong...
A complete waste of its all star cast.
Dull comedy about a born again Christian who gets involved in a messy attempted murder. Hardly raises a titter and the whole plot has no clear directio
It's very strange but it's ok
