* HeyItsThatGuy:
** The bartender at the [=MacManus=]' favorite bar is played by Gerrard Parks... AKA the kindly old Doc, from ''Series/FraggleRock''. It's... a little jarring hearing him drop a ClusterFBomb.
*** His name is also Doc in the film. Maybe Fraggle Rock is located beneath South Boston. Could Il Duce in fact be Ned Shimmelfinnie?
** Not to mention porn star Ron Jeremy as Vincenzo, the mob guy who gets shot in the strip club.
** Concezio Yakevetta [[Film/TheBreakfastClub once spent a Saturday in detention]].
** Robb Wells from ''TrailerParkBoys'' spends a ton of time standing around in the background.
** Jeanna Fine, another porn star, also appears in the strip club shootout.
** Connor used to be Series/YoungIndianaJones.
** Apparently [[Series/TheWalkingDead Daryl]] was very busy before the zombie apocalypse.
** A very young Bradley Cooper is one of the people interviewed about the Saints in the end of the first film.
** Who knew [[Film/SpiderMan1 Norman Osborne]] was once an FBI Agent.

* PlayingAgainstType: The [[TheStoic stone-cold]] veteran [[HitmanWithAHeart hitman]] Il Duce, is played by ''Billy Connolly'' of all people. He's done serious roles before, but not like ''this.''

* BillingDisplacement: [[Film/EasyRider Peter]] [[Film/GhostRider Fonda]] doesn't appear until the last 20 minutes of ''All Saint's Day'', yet still got billed over Billy Connolly (Il Duce [[spoiler:and the father of Connor and Murphy]]).


Added DiffLines:

**In the sequel, Judd Nelson plays the son of the BigBad of the first film (who was played by Carlo Rota). Judd Nelson was born on 1959 and [[PlayingGertrude Carlo Rota]] was born on 1961. Do the math.

Added DiffLines:

* DevelopmentHell: The second film took ''ten years'' to make due to a lack of funding and Troy Duffy's ego. The third film, thus far, seems to be in the same position. Duffy has said if negotiations go through, the story may be continued in a TV series, but the progress seems to be going slowly.


Added DiffLines:

* InvisibleAdvertising: As mentioned, the film was all ready to be released, but unfortunate timing meant it had to be released quietly.
** The second movie was set up this way at first, but positive reception among the fans gave it two wider releases.

* DawsonCasting: A rather bizarre example in that Judd Nelson is actually a year and a half older than Carlo Rota, who played Papa Joe.
