A good movie

Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I'm a huge fan of Jodie Foster, I really wanted to check it out. To start with, in my opinion, the whole thing was rather misleading. Indeed, on all the promotional material, you have Jodie Foster displayed prominently but, unfortunately, she had actually a very small role and didn't do much during the whole thing.

Description: A refreshing and honest portrayal of adolescent Catholic boys. The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys follows Tim (Kieran Culkin) and Francis (Emile Hirsch) as they engage in aimless vandalism and mockery--not from malice but boredom. Sadly, the theft of a religious icon and a plan to kidnap a cougar result in far more serious consequences ... (more)

" "A refreshing and honest portrayal of adolescent Catholic boys"... if this was the 80's perhaps. Still for yet another 'coming of age' film it wasn't that bad but honestly... does anything new happen in any of these types of films?"

A good movie

“Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I'm a huge fan of Jodie Foster, I really wanted to check it out. To start with, in my opinion, the whole thing was rather misleading. Indeed, on all the promotional material, you have Jodie Foster displayed prominently but, unfortunately, she had actually a very small role and didn't do much during the whole thing. Still, even though I didn’t really get what I was expecting, I thought it was actually a pretty good flick. Indeed, first of all, the young cast (Emile Hirsch, Kieran Culkin, Jena Malone) was really good and they all gave some rather impressive performance (later on, Emile Hirsch completely blew me away with ‘Into the Wild’ and, at some point, I seriously thought he might become one of the best actors of hi” read more

"The angst file: Francis: Not everyone has to make up trouble for themselves, just so they're not bored! Tim: At least I'm doing something. What are you doing, Francis? What exactly do you do?.... Have you done anything with Margie yet? Francis: You don't know anything about that! Tim: Oh, so you haven't done anything with Margie. Maybe I'll just write her another note, so that you can have a lot more time doing shit like this!!! (A special thanks to नोएल)"
