Michael Lynch is Dublin's most notorious criminal, his brazen robberies making him the bane of the Gardaí and a hero to his fellow working class city Northsiders. When not playing happy families with his two wives - sisters Christine and Lisa - and his children, Lynch is busy plotting elaborate heists, thinking as much about the showmanship of it all as he is the loot involved. On his case is Garda Noel Quigley, his determination to convict Lynch slowly turning into an obsession. Inevitably, a showdown looms. Written by

Phlagmetic thief continually tries to outwit the coppers!
Typically English, and Spacey somehow seems to fit right in. Even behind his mask one can tell he is very pleased with himself. The movie is full of crazy ideas and every time you have to wonder how Spacey will work himself out of yet another precarious situation. The painting-robbery is simply brilliant. Well edited, with flashforwards and flashbacks which tell us a lot in just a little bit of time. Great fun, well written, amusement at its best. Nothing more, and certainly nothing less!
