Chad and Tony attend the wake of Lucky McMan, who died from the shock of winning the lottery. This plot was shared in the film " Waking Ned Devine" and the actor who portrayed the titular character, acts in this film as a regular patron at Brady's pub. See more »
OK, I enjoyed the movie. A good part of what I liked about the movie was simply learning a little about the daily life of people in Ireland. Take that away, and I'm not sure that the somewhat flawed script and story would hold up. The story holds your attention in that you get to know the characters and you want to know what happened 20 years ago. The revelation is fairly predictable, and not overly satisfying.
I give it a 7, and that's probably a little generous...
