The plot is fairly ropey but this is a vibrant, at times hilarious comedy, something that is all too rare in Ireland. Some laugh-out-loud moments and the two lads are great. It's good to see Cork get a run on the big screen and the film is a more low-brow companion to Lisa McInerny's Cork-set novel The Glorious Heresies. Well worth a look.
Commendable and entertaining in bursts although relies too heavily on movie tropes and generalised character observations when better casting and a tighter script could have elevated those characters to something much more interesting.
