oh , you have to see it!!!!!!
7 July 2000 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Roddy's gone and done it again--The film is exquisite. You will laugh 'till a lung bursts. Don't take you eyes or ears off the screen, every second counts!

Roddy Doyle can present Irish family life at its best and most painful and The Snapper will leave you gasping for more. Colm Meaney is as always amazing but pay attention to Ruth McCabe and Tina Kellegher, quick dry wit from the former and outlandish comments from the latter. Very very clever!
