  • Very slow and a lot of bad language.

  • I thought this was the epitomy of intelligent humor.

  • So slow that I fell asleep and missed most of it. Could not be bothered to watch what I had missed.

  • A bit strange and slow - but slowly got where it was going.

  • Quirky, irreverant, totally politically incorrect and VERY funny! This charmingly offbeat Irish thriller/comedy had me hooked from the start. Excellent acting all round, particularly Brendan Gleeson who is perfect as the subversive, yet startingly flamboyantly romantic police sargeant in a small Irish town - he is hilarious! Don Cheadle is also delightful as the FBI agent sent to Ireland to help break a drug ring. Other supporting characters are equally hilarious and bizarre. Highly recommended.
