To the two who gave it one star
21 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After reading all the comments it seems one either loves this movie or hates it. I loved it enough to buy a copy which, before I had the internet, was no easy chore. The manager of the local Blockbuster managed to find it for me. When a friend wants to see it they watch it at my house. I won't lend it out. To the two who hated it - get a life. No one ever said it's the worlds most important film. It isn't. What it is instead, is an enjoyable little movie about two men who take what life throws at them and make the best of it. It also captures a time when Ireland was losing many of its young men to other countries because of lack of work; a situation that, fortunately, is no longer common.
