    by YOUKILIS20

    Looks like it could be mildly entertaining. I'm sort of middle ground on the first flick, I'm not one of those that bash it and Duffy's direction (although Overnight proved he's an egotistical dick), but I'm also not one of those loyalist fanboys who tattoo quotes from the flick on their balls. I reserve that right for Spielberg's Hook. Also, Powder looks like he aged forty years instead of ten.

    by Madcapper

    I hope this movie is good, but the trailer doesn't exactly fill me with hope. They replace Dafoe with some chick that seems to be copying his acting style from the first movie. Not a good sign. It feels forced in the trailer, and because of the fact that this has been in the making for ten years.

    so critical

    by KingusKong

    you talkbackers. i thought the first film was amazing. It had some really great lines that just screamed cool. its not about mr. dafoe being in drag, its the snappy lines he says during the crime scenes. it has some great themes as well; the professional vs the amatuers with an amatuer on the main team. vigilantism vs remorse for criminals, and it had an interesting twist with the dude being thier pop. you cant tell me you dont enjoy the scene when the shootout is being played out while dafoe re-enacts it. thats some good shit. i enjoyed the first movie, i wont call it brilliant, but i enjoyed it. excited for the next.

    by Johnno

    A nice little comical action flick with some badass scenes and lots of cool dialogue. This trailer doesn't really do much for me, but I'll give it a shot! Would've been nice if Dafoe was back, rather than get someone else who's just like him, which is lame... unless this chick IS Dafoe's character post-op... What a twist!

    The first one, seperated from 'Overnight,' is ...

    by JediRob

    ...pretty cool and fun. And it obviosuly struck a nerve with a certain cult demographic. Which si also cool. That said as much as I love seeing Billy Connolly in movies, this just reeks of forced trite.The moment I saw Julie Benz doing the same shtick as Willem from the first one, I just audibly groaned.<br> <br> The first one was a fun DTV movie that gained some deserved attention. But there's a reason it wasn't released wide, it's that even by 1999 folks were over that whole Matrix/John Woo style. That's why Equilibrium wasn't released either. They are definitely over it now.

  • Sept. 3, 2009, 12:38 p.m. CST

    alright madcapper,

    by KingusKong

    point taken. and i agree as well. i never saw boondocks having a sequel. so i will be skeptical as well, but as is the trend with sequals (at least for me) i enjoyed the first and will be seeing the second. the dafoe copy scares me too. that may just be the downfall of the entire flick.

    by Jor-El23

    I would get it if people loved it because it was so bad...like Manos or Plan 9 or whatever that other one that's big right now. But instead the people who like this steaming pile like it because they think it's a good movie. I also don't get how of all the post-Pulp Fiction, Tarantino rip-offs that have come out, how does this one, which is clearly the worst of the rip-offs, become such a big cult hit? No love for Way of the Gun? Or 2 Days in the Valley?

    by Kaiser Soze

    Equilibrium WAS released into theaters. I saw it with some friends at the AMC 30 in Houston years ago, and we all thought it was better than the Matrix at the time. Boondock Saints also hit theaters, because I took a girl on a date to see it because she had a thing for Sean Patrick Flannery (we were in theater and had gone to see some scenes of Powder that were filmed in Deer Park). Oh yeah, and people weren't "over that John Woo/Matrix shit" in 1999, the Matrix came out in 1999. As for Boondock Saints II, although I still enjoy the first one for a "kick back and veg" flick, and I'll definitely see the second one if for nothing more than Julie Benz, the trailer doesn't give me much hope that it will do anything more than devalue the status of the first. Both brothers look too old now, and I have trouble believing their amateur exploits continued for 10 years without getting killed or jailed.

    I think someone asked up top there. Overnight was a documentary made by "friends" of boondock director writer Troy Duffy. Troy Duffy starts the movie as a Bartender who sells his first screenplay, goes to being the young toast of hollywood, then loses it all. And, important part, everything bad that happens to him is his own damned fault.

    It's actually a litmus test for me to determine someone's taste in movies. If they mention BS as a favorite, I usually know that I shouldn't pursue the conversation any further. Just a terrible movie masquerading as cool. Most of what I remember is people standing 5 feet apart, emptying clips in slow motion at each other without dodging, and nobody hits anything. Dafoe seemed pissed to even be onscreen in that movie, and I can't blame him. This movie actually made me angry with the people who recommended it to me. The only good thing that came out of it was Overnight.

    by bagwanbob

    I can see that. I've heard a lot of people say the same thing. I'm thinking Billy Connelley as the old hitman, Willem Dafoe as the drag-wearing, clue-sniffing Fed. The whole "divine mission" thing topped of with the voice-overs. While these things alone might not amount to much, stir them all together and add in a shot or two of Jamesons, and the thing just gels somehow. I got lucky enough to stumble onto it for 9.99 at Bestbuy, so I can't complain. I'd lump it into the same category as State of Grace. Is it The Seven Samurai? Hardly. But as small movies go, definitely solid enough to put it in my go-to pile.

  • Sept. 3, 2009, 2:24 p.m. CST

    Mattman, I don't get upset...

    by ebonic_plague

    ...that people like it. For me, this was a case of a movie being hyped by certain friends as "OMG THE BEST MOVIE EVAR!!!1" and when I watched it, it was so bad that it made me question my friends' fundamental taste in movies. And that made me dislike the movie even more fiercely. Sorta like Donnie Darko did for a lot of people... an example of one I thought was a decent movie that was hurt by emo kids hailing it as "TBTE!!!1" But I actually enjoyed DD... there wasn't much at all that I enjoyed about BS, and even that little bit was ruined by the over-hyped recommendations.

The majority of people who saw these films saw them on video, as that is where they made their bones.Seeing a film you've never heard of, that is for all intents straight to video, and it being halfway decent is always fun.<br><br> Also I am well aware of when The Matrix came out. That's exactly my point. The Matrix was a revolution in the movie goers eyes of this kind of thing, so anything after that would get simple regarded as a Matrix rip off. <br><br>Oh and I did not say "John Woo/Matrix shit" as you quoted me as such.

    by Bob of the Shire

    One of the most blatant Pulp Fiction rip-offs I've ever seen. The ham-fisted "moral question" that appears out of no where for the last third of the film was just fucking painful.

  • Sept. 3, 2009, 3:06 p.m. CST

    What did Troy Duffy ever do to you?

    by pierrelabite1

    I'll agree, Troy did not come across as very sympathetic in Over Night. As a Boondock Saints fan, I was a very concerned about his behaviour, and I did feel that many of his problems were self-created. Having said that, I have to give him credit for having the guts to make his film at all costs. He is a flawed creature who (like many on this board) has more than a few anger issues, but he got the job done. And ten years after he was supposedly blacklisted from Hollywood, he has a new movie. What should this tell all of you? That there is no justice? That scum floats? NO! It should tell you that you if you have courage and determination and can back that up, you can get a second chance. Sure, Boondock Saints isn't for everyone, but there are A LOT of fans of the movie out there. Get over yourselves, it's like a truck stop men's room in here.

    by Madcapper

    to make a good movie, it doesn't deserve the level of hate it is getting by some of you guys. If it is a bad movie made by lazy people, THEN a movie deserves flaming. It's fine if you didn't like the first one, and fine that you're sceptic about a sequel, but wait till you've seen it before you induce self-combustion or heartattacks. This goes for all movies except fuckin' Bad Boys 3. Everbody KNOWS this movie is going to fail. The former one did, and besides, Will is in it. Bay directs.

    Your lumping this in with a Cohen and a Gilliam movie. WOW. For everyone else. You are majorly over reacting to a (at the time) little known movie that gained a bit of popularity because it was a "little known movie". To trash it cause you saw a doc (after the fact) and went into the film already hating the director is bullshit. If you saw it and didn't like it cause you thought it was derivative, fine. Not a whole lot of irish catholic brothers from Boston on here apparently. Rocco was a great character. Adding Benz is a msitake. She was terrible in Rambo. Hot but generally emotionless. This movie was fun. For the record I think a sequal is a mistake. Looks like a polished turd.

    As for Duffy ripping off Tarantino...

    by Tenebre

    Let's just pass by how laughable that statement is, since every Movie Big T has made has been a pastiche of scenes stolen from other movies. Let's instead ask ourselves what movie Tarantino has ever made that had religiously motivated Irish brother vigillantes who are being tracked by an FBI agent who by borderline paranormal means reconstructs their crime scenes. Then, when he catches them, is so moved by their motives that he joins them. Closest might be Natural Born Killers, but I don't buy it. Hmmm. Is it perhaps a ripoff because it's a crime movie? Does Tarantino own the genre? Truth is, some idiot made this statement years ago and its been repeated ad nauseum ever since. It sounds like a good sting, but have any of you lemmings checked to see if the shoe actually fits?

A couple of drunk irish kids who fall ass backwards into becoming vigilantes? Billy Connolly as a uber hitman. Come on? That's great. I think it's tons better than plenty of other things that get huge releases and make gobs of money.

    Awww come on,

    by dancetothebeatofthelivingdead

    Boondock was a cool little movie, loved it the first time I saw it. On multiple viewings it loses a lot each time; cool little movies often do. The fact that Duffy is and was a colossal asshole and a prick that stands out amongst all the pricks in Hollywood simply makes it a little hard to root for him and has the inner me hoping All Saints Day is a colossal mess. <br> <br> The original was a movie of its time and in its time was pretty cool. It was not important cinema and was never worthy of the enormous praise that was heaped on it by people who can only find self worth in "discovering" something no one else knows about and then shitting on it once it has an audience. <br> <br> I bought Boondock on Blu Ray a few months ago and it was a little painful to watch. The movie has aged horribly and things that were cool in their time are really silly now. It doesn't change the fact that the movie was pretty fun and bad-ass the first time I saw it. I would love to see a sequel of Overnight, watching this jerk-off self-destruct was hilarious the first time, and now that he's grabbing the spotlight again, I'm sure the end result will be similar.

  • Sept. 3, 2009, 6:21 p.m. CST

    I liked Saints when I saw it...

    by Ebixby

    It was a direct to DVD in my eyes, so when I watched it, I wasn't expecting much. For a movie with a shitty budget and first time director with no previous movie experience, it wasn't bad. Not great but better than "Stolen Summer" or "Battle of Shaker Heights"... hell it's definitly better than both Punisher films. Again the nerds love to flame- they can;t help but have a mob mentality. Oh well.

  • Sept. 3, 2009, 6:28 p.m. CST

    dont blame the nerd

    by Nerd_Rage_Retard_Strength

    sure nerds love to flame, but this is not mob mentality. just a large group of people expressing their contempt for this movie and its jack-ass creator. i think more people dislike this movie than like it and don't understand why a sequal is being made. (and it is fun to flame this turd of a "movie")

    by JediRob

    I mean there's really no chance of it being anything but right? For arguments sake, even if we say there was some charm to the original for what it was, surely it was a fluke of lightning in a bottle. Not a chance that's gonna fly for a second time.

    Like Blade Runner...

    by Red Ned Lynch

    ...in reverse. I remember when Blade Runner came out I liked it better than anyone I knew. One day, oh about a decade and a half later, I realized everyone liked it more than I did. When Boondock Saints came out I didn't like it much, but I can't say I outright hated it. Like most of the "I can be Tarantino too" movies it had a few moments that made you smile and a lot more that made you groan. I think my favorite of the lot was Killing Time, but no one even remembers that movie. Now everyone hates it worse than I do. Can we at least all agree the documentary was good but not quite great? And stick to it? Thanks.

    Tarantino is a nice guy according to his peers. Also many an interviewer and fan has gone on record as what a sweet and generous guy he is (unless you are that cocksucker don murphy). <p>Cruise also is said to be a lovely guy. Strange how all the people outside of his friends, family, fans and peers seem to think otherwise. People with an agenda can be so cruel. <p> To sum up then. Troy Duffy is a cunt and a shit director. Whatever else he might be I can't comment. But I'll give him this - The boondocks script was kick ass by all accounts.

    wow, the outright hate is surprising

    by SirBiatchReturns

    I loved the Boondock Saints when I saw it, and I just saw it for the first time about two weeks ago. I dunno if it's because movies today are of lower quality so my expectations is lower. Anyway, BS is a fun movie, and a damn good one. Tightly plotted, well acted, very well directed and a geniunely interesting concept. So what else is left to judge the movie by?<p>I don't care if Troy Duffy is a douche. I just want a good movie at the end of the day. With that said, this trailer looks like shit.

    Boondock saints is retarded

    by martinlutherkrangjr

    I'm surprised a sequel ever got made. I thought harvey Weinstein made a solemn vow to bury murphy until the end of time. Does this mean the weinstein bros have finally lost all of their juice in Hollywood? <p> The first one was terrible. One of my exes owned it and when we broke up she pit it in a box that contained the items I had left in her apt. I figured it was a mistake and tried to give it back and she refused to admit it was hers. I gave it to a homeless man outside her building. If he was able to trade it for crack its probably the best thing to come from that movie being made.

I guess this is just one of those things where it just doesn't matter what the rest of the crowd thinks...i happen to like Boondock Saints quite a bit, and I'll definitely see this one when it comes out...everyone deserves a second chance...even arrogant pricks ....oh...and there's another thing...my guess is that there isn't one person in this talk-back that actually knows the director....and everyone is basing there opinion off of a doc created by dudes that definitely had an agenda...so there ya go....I'll enjoy the movie when it comes out, and you all can just go and enjoy...well...whatever it is that you don't hate.... :)

    by vettebro

    Boondock Saints was a cult hit for a reason. Despite all it's flaws, it was an entertaining movie. However, "Overnight" is a better movie to be sure. I also have to agree with some of the earlier posts. This looks like the same movie re-hashed over again. I wanted a sequel years ago. Now, I don't care so much. I hope it is better than the first one.

    Why Duffy made this movie...

    by dgaughan

    Also, for those of you who see this film as some sort of "redemption" of Duffy in the hands of Hollywood, this is not a studio picture. And the only reasons he's making a sequel are: 1) his contract on the original film did not include home video/DVD, so he hasn't made a dime, and 2) he's a fatheaded tub of shit with a single idea.

  • Sept. 4, 2009, 7:14 a.m. CST

    The original is one of the worst films ever made

    by reflecto

    The ultimate in "embarrassing movies college film geeks like and soon realize are horrible." It combines all sorts of sub-Tarantino/Scorsese cliches and adolescent fantasies, shoves them in a blender with about 20 lbs of human feces, and presses frappe. It's worse than Howling VII. Duffy should not be allowed to direct traffic, let alone celluloid.

    by Chakraborty

    You're right, it's just my opinion, but let further explain why your video is awful. Apart from it's deprived nature, it was totally uncreative. Apparently when given the assignment of making a video with kids, the first thing that comes to most peoples' minds is that have them killed, or to have a twist where it turns out they are doing the killing. Look how many of the videos fit those categories. However, I felt that yours was the most devoid of any humor or creativity apart from the of killing a baby, no less. <p>. And yes, I'm aware that your son wasn't actually killed, as is the case in movies. So your logic is that anything can be portrayed in movies since it is all fake anyways? Do you draw the line anywhere? Would you have a problem depicting your son getting raped or sodomized? I mean, withou actually doing it. Because after all, like you said, how many 2 month olds have been on film...lucky him. As for Brad Pitt dying as a baby in film, there's a huge difference between a baby dying of natural causes and a baby being chainsawed to death with the intent of being funny. Your arguments were just as bad as your film...in my humble opinion.

As far as BoonDock Saints is concerned, i'll watch it out of shear curiousity. I've seen the original and then rented Overnight after I read Kevin Smith's ranting about it one day. I think the idea of the movie was a good one in a Punisher kind of way, the execution wasn't horrible for a first time director, it just kind of borrowed alot from different films. I have to admit, even though I don't hate it, I FUCKING HATE the pricks who have the tatto's and shit. It's just a bit much man.

    tarantino is kind of a douche bag. a douche bag with some talent, granted, but still a douche bag. tarantino has a cult following of fans who love his shit regardless of whether its good or bad. <p> now, troy duffy, who is a douche bag with NO talent who rips off tarantino also apparently has a following of fans who love his shit, DESPITE the fact that it sucks. <p> so for all you troy duffy fans, my advise to you would be to jump into the tarantino camp. that way people won't realize what horrible taste in movies you have and you won't get dissed constantly for being the fan of a loser.

    redhorsevector: 26 Smeckers are living in the US

    by itrainmonkeys

    According to Whitepages.com, there are 26 people with the last name Smecker living in the U.S.A. - mostly from Pennsylvania. I'm sure there are more. I've never met one of these folks, but at least Duffy didn't just make it up.

    Sorry, I do think Boondock Saints is decent. And I don't have a mullet. Fairly certain my brain is made of maggots either. Nice image, though.

    Dafoe and Della Rocco made the first movie!

    by Koborover

    Willem Dafoe and David Della Rocco were great in the first movie, lots of hilarious moments. I didn't care for those brothers at all, so I don't think I'm gonna like part two. Collins Jr.'s character does seem like fun though, I'll probably check it out sometime.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Duffy thought he made it up. The other names in the movie aren't too inspired either - Detective Duffy (just using his own name) for one. Rocco as another (I get using your friend in the movie....but giving his character the same name?).

    by micturatingbenjamin

    I actually liked Boondock Saints. Duffy may be an egregious fella, but the Funny Man was funny, the scene with the Don was funny, and the cat scene was kind of funny. The dialogue was 'me too!' Tarantino-fare, and like most movies of that decade were as Scott Mosier put it: 'Hitmen Misplace A Body' 'Hitmen With A Heart of Gold' 'Anything Kind of Like Pulp Fiction'.<p>I want to see Over Night now too, though. :)

    I loved Boondock Saints

    by SavageJuicebox

    and the hate continues

    by SirBiatchReturns

    Honestly, if you guys think Boondock Saints is an example of shitty writting, shitty directing and shitty acting, then I think some of you guys have no idea what actually makes a good film. Or you're just hating the guy himself and transferring that to the movie.<p>The 're-creation of the crime scene' stuff in the movie was brilliant - a cool idea and executed quite well. Crappy action? are you kidding me? There was no shaky cam, the action scenes were clear and chereographed pretty well for the most part. You can't tell me that when the dad shows up for the first time with all those guns, that it wasn't a cool moment. Fuck outta here with some of these 'criticisms.' If you're an action fan, I just don't see how you can hate BS. You may not like it, and that's cool. But outright hate? fuck outta here.

  • Sept. 5, 2009, 3:10 p.m. CST

    SirBiatchReturns I think it's shitty directing..

    by Talkbacker with no name

    and shitty acting. I also think The Departed, The Friends of Eddie Coyle, Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone and Mystery Street all tower above Boondock as a crime film set in Boston in everyway. Guess there goes your theory eh? Unless of course you don't think they are 'good films'. Hating on duffy is a nice bonus.

  • Sept. 5, 2009, 3:14 p.m. CST

    I just watched the first one again, for first time in years...

    by JediRob

    ..and it is severely flawed. It does not really hold up to repeat viewings as a full functioning film. But I still think it works as a whole, as it does have enough good people, and entertaining moments.

  • Sept. 5, 2009, 3:16 p.m. CST

    SavageJuicebox who's bagging you?

    by Talkbacker with no name

    People are bagging on the movie arn't they? Why are Boondock fans so defensive and touchy? Is this like your Reservoir Dogs or something? <p>'bagging'. To 'bag'. I like that! I'm going to start using it!

  • Sept. 5, 2009, 6:18 p.m. CST

    This is like...

    by micturatingbenjamin

    Saying 'You know what? Attack of the Killer Tomatoes was a pile of crap'.<p>TBWNN, if you ever put Boondock Saints in the same thought as Reservoir Dogs, I'm pulling your film fan card, and giving it to Danny Glover's Dickblood.<p>I happen to like 'Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man'. But if someone says 'that movie's total shit, and the Matrix was better'. I say, 'No shit, but I still like it.' And lots of the stuff in Boondocks was good...<p>PS to Duffy, don't blame the Weinsteins. Blame the douchebags who shot up Columbine.

  • Sept. 5, 2009, 9:21 p.m. CST

    watched Overnight again...

    by dgaughan

    It holds up even better than I thought (though it's pretty undeniable that it's a hatchet job... on a dude who deserves a hatchet between his eyes). "Harvey Weistein wants to be me." "a deep cesspool of creativity" "I'm Hollywood's new hard-on." "a logpile of creativity" What a fucking prick.

    Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man

    by MacReady452

    is fucking awesome. I love when Big John Stud slides the motorcyle at Daniel Baldwin and lights it up. One of the most fun movies of my youth. LOVE IT! Still holds up.

    by SirBiatchReturns

    Boondocks IS NOT a crime film. LMAO at comparing it to The Departed and Mystic River. You guys have to be kidding me. Might as well take off points for it not being like Shawshank Redemption.<p> BS is a fun vigilante action movie with an interesting & slightly shallow premise. It's not a deep movie. I REPEAT, it is NOT a deep movie. But it is a fun, well-directed movie.<p> and HercsRadio... SirBitch, huh? CLEVER. lmao. Now you may shoot yourself because that's as intelligent as you'll get.

  • Sept. 6, 2009, 7:49 a.m. CST

    oh SirBiatchReturns you were doing so well!

    by Talkbacker with no name

    Blimey I thought murder was a crime! You best tell Duffy because he seems to think it's a "crime thriller" as well as pretty much every single person who reviewed it. To like it or not is one thing, but to not even know what it is, well that means you have egg on your face, sir. Egg on your face. Point still stands. All of the above are all far better crime movies set in Boston. Want to try again?

    Replacing\re-hashing Willam Dafoe with a hot chick?

    by Joey_Redballs

    I dunno. I don't like that. I wouldn't be surpised if this chick is supposed to actually be Willam Dafoe's character post-sex change and plastic surgery. If that's the case, keep the weiner for a shock factor.</p> And are we to believe they stopped killing gangsters for 10 years? I would rather believe they kept killing random gangsters throughout the past 10 years.

    by SirBiatchReturns

    who cares what Duffy labels it? If you can't see the CLEAR difference between Boondock and other actual crime movies like Mystic, then you're an idiot. Because they're like night and day. Not for 1 second did I watch BS thinking: 'this is an accurate portrayal of crime in Boston.' To take points off for 'accurate protrayal' is RETARDED, because the whole vibe of the movie just isn't focused on that. It's a JohnWoo/Matrix influenced Tarantino pop gun movie with crime elements in it. That's it. Not hard to understand, but apparently it is for some of y'all.

  • Sept. 6, 2009, 12:08 p.m. CST

    and techically, it IS a crime thriller

    by SirBiatchReturns

    just not a realistic one, and they don't have to be. How hard is this is to understand?

  • Sept. 6, 2009, 2:35 p.m. CST

    SirBiatchReturns, you are not getting the hang of this are you?

    by Talkbacker with no name

    Not once did I even mention anything about "accurate portrayal of crime". I said it was a crime film. You said it wasn't, but have since agreed it now is. You were wrong and we can now move on.

    by FluffyUnbound

    To the guy above who said that this movie is the epitome of the movie you thought was cool and interesting in college but now realize kind of sucks, I gotta disagree. That movie is BLUE VELVET.

  • Sept. 6, 2009, 7:48 p.m. CST

    Herc, does Duffy owe you money or something?

    by SirBiatchReturns

    lol at bringing up his name like it matters. I don't give a shit what you thought Duffy thought when he was making the film. The fact that you continue to bring him up shows that you hate the movie because of him, which is just lame. Duffy is probably a super douche and a racist, but even racists can make good films. Think about that for a sec.<p> "Clearly BS is the male version of Twilight" - right... because all the mob bosses are secretly vampires. LMAO. And the two retards in the audience clap uncontrollably and pat each other on the back<p> You guys are pathetic. The sad reality is that LOTS of people liked the first movie for good reason, and STILL like it a decade later. Feel free to hate - you're definitely in the minority.

  • Sept. 6, 2009, 10:55 p.m. CST

    "you're definitely in the minority"

    by MidnightMeatTrain

    Haha, keep deluding yourself with that one, retard.<p> BS sucked when I finally got around to seeing it 5 years ago and I *just* saw Overnight today for the first time. When this sequel bombs, your little minority of wanking fanboys I'm sure will insist it's a great movie also.

    There are a mountain of people in this thread calling fans of a movie various insults (getting "bagged" on, glad you enjoy the term) just for liking it. So what I said isn't that far of a leap. I don't think it makes me defensive, just realistic.

  • I saw this in the theater (Somerville theater for one week only, one of the very few theaters it was released in.) because it was rated NC-17 for violence. I thought it was big dumb fun and quite enjoyed it. Now, like ROTJ, a movie I thought that everybody at least likes is universally loathed. Is there any other movie that I like, but am supposed to hate? I really need a listof movies I'm supposed to hate in order to keep my movie-geek street cred, And yes, I saw overnight. Duffy comes off as the biggest douchenozzle in the world, but I, being a grownup didn't let that detract me from liking the movie.
