Exactly what I had expected, a snapshot of a Dublin community, difficult task portraying it to such a wide fan base. Great pictures of Dublin, shown off in all its beauty, underneath the comedy a real subject is being dealt with the developers have spent many years trying to close it down, yet markets like it thrive in city's allover the world. As always there is no hidden meaning and no punches pulled. To those who complain about the language, do you walk around Dublin ? This is reality in the areas portrayed. As for those who say some of it is over the top ? The cinema is the place for over the top ! This is about Dublin shot in Dublin with Dublin people, not a set in Pinewood or Hollywood. A comedy played for laughs and succeeds. Well done Brendan I would not expect less.
