Some of the prisoners had taken the character of Rats to their hearts that they wrote some of Rats' sayings on their cell walls. See more »
Look, this movie was, so, so. But the fact that it had is main fella, doing what he did because he wanted his granny to go to Lourdes, spelling wrong, lo. Whats wrong with that. Hell, I just thought the idea was fine, the movie, well, I guess we all got to make one before we go all, well you know, lo. That said, Irish movies seem to be having a hard time, well intermission was Fabe, but all the same, Mr Cruise and his fellow actors who take on the Irish accent, should take a moment and actually listen to how we speak, hold on I have just seen a rainbow, bet that pot of gold is at the en of this one. To end with, this movie was fun, I'm irish and wasn't upset. Guess that's because it was made by europens. lol. no offence at all, my fav movies come from Japan.
