The ironing is delicious.

Dead Long Enough Irish comedy is not dead yet.

The story follows Ben Jones played by Jason Hughes (This Life), a depressed Welsh Lawyer who lives in the shadow of his promiscuous TV celebrity brother Harry, played with tongue in cheek verve by British Los Angeles based actor Micheal Sheen (The Deal).

Ben hankers after his lost love, the fiery Irish colleen Sinead. In this case the Maureen O Hara role is well realized by Angeline Ball. (The Commitments). In a fit of pique Ben accepts the marriage proposal from his ball busting girlfriend excruciatingly played by Channel 4's Bo Selecta's Bauraunka O Shaunessy.

As a surprise Harry takes Ben back for a Stag night to where they were both happiest, the postcard-perfect land of Donegal, Ireland.

Such begins a series of chaotic events. As soon as the characters arrive in Ireland the film and humor take off. Dead Long Enough parodies such Irish classics as The Quiet Man, The Informer and Derby O Gill with a hilarious swipe at Clint Eastwood both in Dirty Harry and the Spaghetti Westerns. The film could be too esoteric for a broad American audience yet it's good to see the Irish doing it for themselves in this well worth catching satire.

John Hinde's fans look out for their favorite postcard.
