Loved it!
9 September 2004 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

'Rats' has just been released from prison - again - and he returns home to find he has been replaced in his mother's affections by his best friend Tommo. Not only that but the money they had painstakingly raised to send his cousin to Lourdes to get a miracle for her terminal obesity has been stolen! Rats decides that to get back in everyone's good books, he has to find a way to raise the cash, and to this end he reforms his pop group spermdotcom and gate-crashes the National Talent Show (like American Idol, or Pop Idol).

That's basically the plot but for me the humour that binds it together is what I loved about the film. As a Dublin 'cailin', i loved the dialogue and the irreverent depiction of a certain part of Dublin in the Noughties, and the low budget quality of this independent film suits it perfectly. I just wish I could find out where I can buy the DVD!
