I thought this movie was brilliant. If you were a fan of Paths to Freedom you'll love the comedy in this.
It was done on a low budget so obviously it's not as polished as most other productions, but with what they had it is definitely a cult Irish classic.
The lyrics of the songs featured in it are hilarious, but it definitely would not translate very well to a non-Irish audience. "You cultchie gaurds think you can come up here and act like narmal (sic) people!!"
And the cameo roles are great with Louis Walsh, Gerry Ryan and Miriam Callaghan really sending themselves up.
