Only the title lets you know this is supposed to be Belfast
26 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I bought this movie as a present for my da who was born and raised in Belfast. He watched it with my mum and his older sister (also born and raised in Belfast). When I walked in on them and found them crying I thought that this must be a tremendous movie until I realized they were crying from laughing so hard! Then I heard the accents! My cat sounds more like a Belfast native then these actors! I had to apologize as I didn't realize when I got them the movie that this was supposed to be a comedy! Someone didn't do their homework! If you want to see a good movie, see Bloody Sunday. That was outstanding and gave you a true insight into the troubles! Or get the Rebel Heart. Based on a true story. This was all over the place.
