Boondock Saints 2: All Saint's Day

This Saturday, Andrew and I opted for the A.M. Movie Special ($6 pp instead of $10.50 pp) to see Boondock Saints II: All Saint's Day.

What can I say? Let's break it down...

1st: our movie-going experience was plagued by just-turned-20-hormonal-crazed boys saying "MILF!" proceeded by Butthead huh-huh-huh-huh everytime the main female character was on the screen.

2nd: The funny as ever....addition of "their Mexican" - even better. "Whoop Ass Fajitas!"

3rd: We learn the background story on Il Duce (the brothers' father) and what caused him to be a killing machine (also where he got his leather vest from, why he was in prison, etc.)

4th: Judd Nelson plays a paranoid mob boss (new Yakavetta family head.)

5th: There is definitely more humor in this movie than before, but some of the old jokes are brought forward as well - think...."rope."

6th: The detectives all seem a little more dumb/juvenile than the first one.

7th: There's an addition of a new FBI agent that takes over for Smecker's replacement. It's not stated WHY he took over, and he doesn't play a large part at all in the movie.

8th: It's been left open for a third installment in the Boondock Saints legacy.

All in all, if you liked Boondock Saints, you'll definitely have no qualms with the sequel.
