Good comedy, Three men trying their luck with a dog and a bit of gambling
Great funny film, three men in Ireland, penniless and trying their luck with hilarious results.
If you like gambling films, then you will love this film it has all the tension and keeps you on the edge of your seat, I could not help but cheer them on on their way.
This film is fast paced and action packed, you join them on the road in Ireland getting chased, getting into hilarious Situations, and trying to race their greyhound while they are at it.
I enjoyed this film very much and it made me laugh a lot, which I find that many films cannot manage these days.
I think that people outside the UK may have trouble understanding the broad Irish accents though, however that aside the three main characters were brilliant in their roles. I recommend this film very highly.
