| Quite good
This movie turned out to be better than I had anticipated. I thought it was just going to be yet another comedy. But "Holy Water" is more than just your average comedy.

The story was good and catchy right from the beginning, and it just got better and better as the story progressed throughout the movie. The characters in the movie were well fleshed out and had lots of depth.

As for the cast. Well nothing to point your fingers at here. Although they did have fairly big names like Linda Hamilton and Tony "Tiny" Lister, the movie would have worked even without their names on the list.

Well, it is not the kind of comedy that will leave you laughing yourself breathless, but it got enough satire and 'out there' comedy to keep you amused throughout the entire movie.

If you are in for an evening, "Holy Water" is a good choice for a movie to watch. Though you should know that they are speaking English with heavy Irish accent, but that fact shouldn't keep movie fans at bay.
