Storyline

Eileen Cleary has just been nominated for Catholic Woman of the year when her family drop a bombshell. Over the dinner table she discovers that not only is her son leaving his wife and children for the local beautician, but her daughter is 5 months pregnant and about to marry her girlfriend. Desperate to win the award, Eileen is conflicted between shame over her family and still desiring to do the right thing by them. Unable to accept either of their choices her family begins to splinter, with even her husband threatening to leave. Ultimately this is a feel-good movie and Eileen proves herself to be a person worthy of both the award and her family. Written by Ida Raine

Boring!
16 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

I don't see how this film is even called a comedy. The acting is not very convincing at all and the entire premise of the story is old and tired.

Do we really need more movies making religious people look stupid? This movie is essentially a slam on Catholics and not even a good criticism of the faithful. I am not a church-goer and I found this film to be downright offensive. In addition it is a completely immature view of the subject of religious intolerance and "behind closed doors" lives of so'called religious people.

Kathleen Turners voice is unfortunately not very pleasant and downright hoarse. This made the film very hard to listen to...I'm not saying that to be cruel, her voice is just raspy and manlike and hard to take.

The move moves extremely slow and is just boring really. One of the worst movies I have rented in a while.
