Entertainment Weekly
Modest and prosaic, with an unfortunate fairy-tale ending (yes, it features Tom Jones).
75
Philadelphia Inquirer
Even though the soap employed is Irish Spring, this is still a soap opera.
75
New York Daily News
A standout feature of the movie is its representation of female friendship.
63
Chicago Sun-Times
This is a modest but likable film, and Anjelica Huston plays a heroine who makes us smile.
63
Chicago Tribune
A bawdy comedy that convincingly celebrates the resilience of the urban poor and the power of friendship in the teeth of despair.
63
New York Post
A satisfying Irish stew made from very familiar ingredients.
63
Baltimore Sun
A pleasant little confection that leaves behind the sneaking suspicion it should have amounted to so much more.
63
Charlotte Observer
It flies apart when it clumsily introduces humor at a funeral or an application for death benefits.
50
San Francisco Chronicle
Floats along on the strength of its writing and supporting cast.
50
USA Today
Great slabs of blarney are washed down with tears and Guinness in this yarn about a struggling Irish clan, and the resulting sentiment is blatant enough to wake Ned Devine.
50
Christian Science Monitor
The material is familiar and the ending is corny, but Huston's acting and directing keep the comedy-drama likable if not very imaginative.
