Storyline

On New Year's Eve 1944, American pilot Mike Clarke inadvertently bets Al Capone's nephew $10,000.00 that he can shoot down five enemy aircraft. Later, forced to land near a remote village in Ireland after running out of fuel, Mike learns that he is cut off from the rest of the world with no way to rejoin the war and shoot down his fifth plane, which is the only way he can win the bet and save his own life. With nowhere to go, he eventually befriends the colorful villagers and meets a fiery red-head named Maggie who shows this pilot that combat can take place on the ground just as well as in the air. It doesn't take long for Mike and Maggie to grow close as she helps him figure out how to win his bet while winning her heart in the process. Written by Cinema Libre

Major plot flaw,but watchable
26 April 2012 | by (Round Rock Texas) – See all my reviews

There is one major flaw in this picture and many will never forgive it.It's like in the great film "A man called Joe"later remade and updated as"Always".In the original a pilot is shot down attacking a "German "aircraft carrier.For those non students of the war,there were no German aircraft carriers.Well in this film Al Capone was in jail in 1931 NEVER to be released for a New Years eve party during WW11 to make the bet this films stakes its premise on.So IF you can get over that major flaw,is a kinda fun film,as much as WW11 can be fun. But back to the story that is interesting and off beat.A bet is made that this young pilot will or will not become a "ace"during the war,which means shoot down 5 planes.He crash lands in Ireland being a plane short of his goal, and then finds out a German plane and pilot are also there.Ireland being a neutral country will intern them in Dublin for the duration.However our pilot meets a lass and a blind WW1 vet and together with his English co-pilot hatch a plot to shoot the German plane down and get his "ace"standing.Add to the mix in a German agent out to kill the German pilot,well it does get silly for a war time film.The cast try but is "b"at best.So if your looking for the off beat,you can do a lot worse.
