The script needs more work
2 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

The movie starts with an attention-grabbing scene of the Irish character Donal (Domhnall Gleeson) finding a place to masturbate with a girlie mag on his father's farm. He stops when he realizes the sheep are watching him. Donal's father sits dead on the stair lift when the farm lad arrives home, but Donal casually takes his time to bring him down by pushing the remote. Looking at a sex site, Donal then phones the attractive Courtenay (Luanne Gordon) to meet for sex, but she asks, and he agrees, to meet first at a café. He asks her to stay for dinner because he is hungry. Then strangely she says she is not used to such things as Donal interpreting the web profile saying she enjoys "going out to dinner" when her clients don't have to. The next scenes show that Donal wants to woo her like a girlfriend but unusually she seems slow to catch on to this. They connect at last and decide to go into the prostitution business together using the farm sale money. There is an argument in the 4WD between the two main characters which seemed like the most real scene in the movie to me, and made me keep watching. The boy-meets-girl movie then turns into a different movie – a pimp grows out of needing the girl movie. This is where the script needs work. Oops too late. The pace and scenes speed up so unrealistically when Donal suddenly becomes pimp-wise, so it then lost it for me. As a movie with current Irish feel and with the difference of having a NZ girl love interest, the movie has some intrigue. But as a movie portraying a highly-sexed Irish farm lad supposedly becoming a knowledgeable pimp the movie disintegrates.
