Poor film but great acting
21 June 2009 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I'd rather watch paint dry.

Myself & my partner thought we were in for a great movie when her uncle recommended this film very highly but we were left very disappointed as it was very poor only the odd giggle here and there.

The acting is first class with some great characters.

I wouldn't rush out to buy this DVD as it would not be worth the money.

As this wouldn't be my cup of tea it is bound to be somebody's.

Mick lally as the priest made us laugh.

you have great individual acting from Mick Lally who is a genius in his own right also Stephen Rae.

I would love to hear others feedback from what they think of the film.
