Pick your “Boston Movie” trailer parody: All-star celebrity mashup or homegrown original?

It's St. Patrick's Day, so obviously that makes some people think more about Boston than usual, because of its larger Irish and Irish-American population (full disclosure: The McCarthy side of my family settled in Lynn (sing it if you know it)).

Funny or Die posted a special St. Patrick's Day-timed movie mashup trailer for what it called "Boston Movie," tying together the plots and characters from Good Will Hunting, The Departed, The Fighter, The Town and Fever Pitch.


 

But you know who also had put together a video called Boston Movie? Boston-based sketch and improv group Improv Asylum, that's who. Except they used their own actors to weave in every potential cliche from The Hub.

 

Which one do you prefer? Or is it comparing apples and oranges? And if so, how do you like them apples and oranges?
