Get Up and Go Review

1 May 2015 4:25 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Writer-Director Brendan Grant’s Get Up and Go, pairing Love/Hate alumni Peter Coonan and Killian Scott is an enjoyable if sometimes uneven, home-grown comedy drama. The story follows one day in the lives of frustrated musician Alex (Coonan), who has long dreamt of a move to London and his friend Coilin (Killian Scott) a dreamer hoping to break into the stand-up comedy circuit in Dublin. When his girlfriend Sinead (Sarah McCall) tells him she’s pregnant Alex panics and fast-tracks his London plans, hoping to borrow the fare from Coilin, but Coilin has problems of his own. He’s just lost his job and he’s become obsessed with Lola (Gemma-Leah Devereux) a girl who barely registers his existence. It’s a wry and often funny look at how we deal with life’s ups and downs.

Watch The First Trailer For Irish Comedy Get Up & Go

10 April 2015 2:27 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Reuniting Love/Hate's Peter Coonan and Killian Scott, Brendan Grant's Get Up & Go follows two friends Alexander (Coonan) and Colin (Scott) nearing the end of their twenties frustrated with their lives as they watch all their hopes and dreams get further and further away from their grasp. Over the course of an action packed 24 hours, they attempt to get their live back on track, battling all that life throws at them, including irate girlfriends and dwindling bank balances, along the way. The type of slacker comedy rarely seen from Irish talents, there is a lot to like about the above trailer, especially the great central pairing of Coonan and Scott. It provides a snap shot of a time I think all people have suffered through in some form during their lives, handling it in a slick and very funny way. Get Up & Go hits Irish cinemas May 1st. »
