Salvation Boulevard 2010

      Based on a book with the same title by Larry Beinhart.  Charismatic evangelical preacher Reverend Dan oversees a mega church.  He receives an invitation to meet with his nemesis, Dr. Paul Blaylock, an atheist author.  Dan takes Carl, a former follower of the Grateful Dead, with him to the meeting.  There is an accident and Dan accidently shoots a loaded antique gun at Dr. Blaylock.  The bullet lodges in Dr. Blaylock's head. 
     This has a lot of not going for it, not funny, not any surprises, not much else but a waste of acting talent and one cheap shot after another.   2* (I didn’t like this movie)

96 min, Comedy, directed George Ratliff with Pierce Brosnan, Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris, Greg Kinnear, Marisa Tomei, Ciaran Hinds, Isabelle Fuhrman, Jim Gaffigan.

Note:  Blockbuster 3*, imdb 5.2 out of 10, 21% critic 26% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
