Goofs

The theatre is obviously on the Protestant side of the bridge. Catholic bullies will not cross the bridge at the beginning of the film, but are routinely seen at the theatre. They even tell the Protestant at the theatre to go back to his own side of the bridge, implying that it is on the Catholic side. See more »

Wonderful!!
5 December 2005 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I loved this film! The boys were a delight, I laughed so hard, and must admit I saw a bit of my husband as a child in Mickeybo. I enjoyed the adventures, or rather misadventures, of the boys, and enjoyed watching their characters develop. I am sure we all knew a Mickybo when we were kids, and as mad as we might have thought they were at times, we admired them as wished we could be a bit more like them. As for "treacle-coated ending", as one review said, it was no such thing. I felt it showed that things are not always as they seem and through it all, people can learn to to understand and accept each other. And not before time. I highly recommend this film!
