At the start of the film, the car is a 1996 VW Golf with a Dublin registration number. When they pull up outside the house to drop Jess off, the car has changed into a 1993 model with Kildare plates. Later, when the car crashes after they run down Craig, it has changed back into the 1996 Dublin car again. See more »
What's it like, being dead, Nathan?
It's empty. Numb. There's no blood circulating.
None? Not even... down there?

From the title "Boy eats Girl" it's pretty clear that this film is one that requires you to leave your brain outside the door. Do that and you should enjoy it. If you're hoping for anything more than a bit of enjoyable fluff, look elsewhere.
The film starts off great, the audience gets to know the main characters quite well, and there are more than a few good laughs. It goes downhill slightly from the moment in the film were the infection begins to spread. This is mainly because it all seems so rushed. However the gory bits (which there is quite a lot of for a 15A film) are varied and inventive enough to keep the viewers entertained.
The main cast all do a good job, in particular David Leon and Tadhg Murphy. Samantha Mumba is good in her role, but she hasn't got as much dialogue as you'd expect from the films lead. Some of the supporting cast however (for example, Bryan Murray as Fr.Frears) are awful.
Overall it is an entertaining, funny, gory movie, and one of the best Irish productions in a long time.
