great movie very funny
1 October 2017 | by oconnorindigoSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie, there are great characters it and some of the lines they come out with are so funny. It might deal with social issues but like any good movie enjoying it just takes over. It's much funnier than some of the comedies I've seen this year and it really needs more distribution for more people to see it. Its a great movie, if you like Irish movies and a good laugh I really recommend going to see it.
