Storyline

Mark is a wannabe actor, penniless, clueless, and inept. He cares for a brother who's paraplegic, and he has a girlfriend, Sally, who wants out of the relationship. His idea of life is to go to the occasional audition, dodge his landlord (having spent the rent money Sally gave him), give Sally a hang-dog look, and talk with Pearce, who lives upstairs. Mark's flat is in disrepair: the kitchen window slams shut, bits of plaster fall from the ceiling, a bulb fizzes, and the sitting-room chandelier sways. When an awful accident happens, Mark freezes, which precipitates additional accidents; he finally calls Pearce, perhaps the worst decision possible. Will Mark come to his senses?

What could this be ...
19 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

Actually with a title like that and after the first few minutes you will catch the drift. The question if you will like were this is going or not, will depend on how much you like "dark humor". If you have seen quite a few of those movies, than you might anticipate quite a few things that will happen.

Still it is done very good, many jokes are really exciting and the movie ends very well. One of the things that stuck out though, was the fact that this movie is Irish. Which means the guys playing this have a very unusual accent (for me and I'm sure for quite a few other guys), which also means, that I had some trouble getting every little thing that was said.

The (inevitable) American Remake will come surely, but before that, make sure to watch this original!
