When Michael McElhatton was researching the prison scenes for this film he went to one of Ireland's Prisons. While he was there he met prisoners who were huge fans of the series Paths to Freedom (2000) in which Rats first appeared. 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 »
This movie is funny as anything! Now, non-Irish, I think will hate this. Nobody but us Irish will like. I think, mainly, Dublin people will like it the most because we can relate to it the most. I think culchies might like it also, but won't relate to us like us. Maybe culchies will hate it because they make fun of them. It also makes fun of people from Northern Ireland. It's all in good fun, however. I like to see and Irish movie for Dubliners, seeing as most of them are made for culchies and Dubliners hate them. This time the shoes on the other foot! Anyway, Dubliners, check it out. Anyone else, stay away! However, if you do think of watching it, you might learn some Dublin words!
