Storyline

Shot on location in Cleveland, Dublin and County Clare, Ireland, "The Yank" is a farcical satire on Irish America and it's "paddywhackery." It's the story of Tom Murphy, a middle-aged Cleveland bachelor whose view of Ireland comes from The Quiet Man, starring John Wayne. He also tends to let the expectations of his family get in the way of finding true love. So when his best friend, Marty, decides to get married in Ireland, Tom's family and friends send him off on a side splitting epic adventure. Tom does not know it yet, but he's about to come face to face with the real Ireland. Written by Sean Lackey

What a massive pile of rubbish. Badly acted, badly shot and Colm Meaney is in it for a really small portion of the film, despite having top billing. One very annoying flaw was the fact that the camera kept moving to the point where it was cutting the top of the actors heads. Also, how did they get Fred Willard? He's far better than this carry on! The one redeeming feature was Martin Maloney (Eddie Durkin from The Hardy Bucks). His cameo was hilarious, although it was disappointing when he didn't bate the head off Sean Lackey's character. In conclusion, avoid. How it's rated as highly as it is on here is beyond me. Utter scutter.
