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

A lovely and very funny movie
12 March 2013 | by jvdesuit1See all my reviews

Yes as one of the reviewers said previously there are two major errors in the scenario. But this is not important. It's fiction and it's funny. It reminds me in some ways of the other film that takes place in Ireland too If I'm remembering well: "Saving Grace" The plot is utterly funny here too, the characters are gorgeous especially one of the Germans hitchhiking and bribing the cop with his whiskey not to say the rest of the action which I wont reveal. I had a good laugh and enjoyed it very much. As usual the critics are downgrading a film either if it's not violent or if you just don't take your head between your hands and don't "mea culpa's" on the miseries of the whole planet!
