Ireland has qualified for the Euros in Poland, but with no money and apathetic mates, the task falls to Eddie to get them out of Castletown and onto the road in search of football and the craic.Written by
Don't listen to the monumental gimp above. Who the f*** watches a two second graphic of a 2 dimensional van full of drunks that's only there to save time and gets upset because there isn't a union flag up in Northern Ireland. Absolutely f*** off you t**t.
All things besides I thought this having a bigger budget would take the lovely painful grubby reality out of it but it's pretty much hilarious the whole way through. It does sag a touch towards the end but this is an extremely common problem with a lot of movie length comedies. The plot is standard gear but again, with comedy it's sometimes not that important. If you're laughing it really doesn't matter. Have to say too that all the lads have gotten pretty decent at acting. A few uneven bits like but for the amateurs they are they really did well.
Only thing that confuses me is why Chris Tordoff isn't listed ad a writer. Was he only involved in the acting side? I was under the impression it was half his creation, perhaps he's moved on. He makes other good stuff anyways.
These damn reviews won't let you swear, some bizarre prohibited words. Shc*terring like? How do they know that one?
