We Want It On DVD!
on January 8, 2003
This is a top rate murder-comedy that more movies should be like. Think of the movie "Clue" only in Ireland.
OK... so the main performers are mostly English with an American thrown in for good measure -- still, it's set in Ireland with many talented Irish actors involved and the humor is as Irish as it gets! ("Back that at 8 to 1, ya bollix.") Each non-Irish actor is thoroughly convincing though and I had no clue that Natasha Richardson wasn't born in America her accent is that good!
The movie itself is set in Ireland with all the beautiful rolling hills, quaint towns (Inistioge? Help me out, people...) and scenic lakes that country has to offer. I can watch this movie over and over for the background alone - and often do. The twist had the end is one you'll never see coming which makes the movie that much the better.
If you love great acting, Ireland, mystery and a good laugh then watch this film. And be sure to bug New Line Studios for a DVD version!!
