Enjoyable gangster comedy about scam artists
19 March 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

It doesn't take long before I was hitched on this Irish comedy, which is what I would call a good old-fashioned light hearted comedy, along the style of the English TV-series Heartbeat. if you are like me, you'll be charmed as well. for Scandinavians the best reference might be the series of Olsen Gang-films (Olsenbanden) only this is funnier and offers less dead pan acting, and more of a romp.

MacMaster is the most feared gangster family all over Ireland, and after a big diamond heist in Cork, the family patron, called Big Mac, stumbles over one of his beloved garden gnomes and dies, before he has told the family where the jewelry is hidden. the police are on their neck, and a couple of old-timers are running a scam operation where the arrange sessions to talk with dead people. of course, the young misses MacMaster seeks them out to find out where the stash is hidden. But dealing with gangsters isn't always easy. They have both enemies and police in their heels. And they are losing control over their scam operation.

With an Irish A-team of actors, this little comedy is a little gem for those looking for some light entertainment. Even the gangsters are the ones you wouldn't be afraid to ask in for a cup of tea. Non violent, and not to dark either, but screw ball inspired with a gallery of funny characters and a good plot, it's a colorful film which supersedes most Hollywood comedies in charm, wit and above all acting. it's also easy to see that the actors are enjoying every minute of it. But the best is really that the film's got a drive, and you want to know the answers.

Excellent photography, great colorful pallet and a dramatical touch which will also be a great watch for elders, having a couple of them in the main roles as our protagonists. Music is right and the comical timing is spot on. I recently saw another of director David Blairs films, "Best laid plans" which I also enjoyed, so I would say he's a man you can count on when it comes to little gems.

David Kelly and Milo O'Shea are both perfect for the roles, and makes the most out of it. Recommended light entertainment.
