Not a bad film.. Not bad at all.
12 June 2005 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I feel a lot of people have been way too harsh on this film. It's not an epic adventure or not the greatest film to hit the Irish scene in 2003 but it is very Irish. You can relate to some of the characters.. It's main attraction is humor and that it does well. This film is funny in a lot of parts but that is all it has for it.

The plot is a little thin but it doesn't have to be in-depth to get this film along. It follows Rats upon his release from Mountjoy Prison on his attempt to get his band together and make a break for it.

Spin the Bottle grows on you after a few times of watching it.. I think it's good for the Irish Film Industry to have films like this to be put out there. The more the merrier and I for one welcome Spin the Bottle. Good effort.
