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

enjoyable if minor little comedy
4 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Waiting For Dublin" is a modest, unassuming little charmer set in the peaceful Irish countryside just a few months prior to the end of World War II (Ireland being a "neutral" country in the conflict). Mike (Andrew Keegan) is an American fighter pilot whose plane goes off course, stranding him and his British co-pilot, "Twickers" (Hugh O'Connor), in a village just chock full of lovable eccentrics and cranks, brimming over with thick brogues and quaint, old-fashioned country ways. Mike is also one "kill" shy of the five he needs to officially become a flying ace and to win the $10,000 bet he inadvertently made with Al Capone's nephew back in the States right before heading off to war. The opportunity for achieving that goal comes in the form of a German flyer who finds himself stuck in the same town. Now all Mike has to do is to somehow convince the affable chap to let him shoot him out of the sky so the American can claim his fifth victim and win both his title and his wager.

With cleverness and wit and more than a touch of the customary blarney, "Waiting For Dublin" doesn't add up to very much in the end, but the truth is it really doesn't care that it doesn't - and, quite frankly, neither do we. For its greatest charm lies in its not trying to be anything more than just a pleasantly innocuous, no-sweat-no-strain kind of offbeat diversion. And at that it succeeds very well - even if it does go off the rails a bit towards the end. Pleasant performances, lovely cinematography, and a fine sense of atmosphere are just icing on the cake.

It's not a movie you're likely to remember much about years after having seen it, but it makes for enjoyable enough viewing while you're at it.
