This movie was brilliant from start to finish,...there's no other way to describe it.The plot is about a number of Irish businessmen who relaise they can make a lot of money if they bet small sums of cash in the correct order and make sure that it's their horse that wins.This was an early role for Pierce Brosnan as the horses trainer as well as some other small faces.What makes this movie very interesting is the fact it is based on a true story, and is quite accurate in how it portrays it.It is an excellent movie with good clean fun(...and a lot of chain-smoking).Great if your in the mood for a laugh...and its less then an hour and a half long, so it wont take up too much time.
