A movie that takes place in Boston that's full of people talking in exaggerated Boston accents and Irish accents. Typically, such movies try to get the message across about just how great Boston is. Boston Movies often star actors who are native to Boston, such as Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg, Robert Wahlberg, Ben Affleck and Casie Affleck. Such movies tend to be filled with special slang relevant specifically to Boston. Some of the well known Boston Movies are 'Good Will Hunting', 'The Boondock Saints' and 'The Departed'.
In light of its win of the Oscar for Best Picture, 'The Departed' is arguably the greatest Boston Movie.
