Movie Info

An Irish married couple (Stephen Rea and Sinead Cusack) tend to define their lives according to the opinions of others. When little crises regarding his job and her parenting skills begin to develop, Rea and Cusack are devastated. When their friends and business acquaintances begin turning sour, they are debilitated. And when the planned renovation of their bathroom goes awry, they are utterly destroyed. The improvisational banter between the two stars was achieved by director Les Blair after extensive, laissez-faire rehearsals.more

Audience Reviews for Bad Behavior


What makes the film work is the cast, especially Stephen Rea and Sinead Cusack. Witty and well written, funny and touching. One of those films that work on all levels. It does drag a bit in parts, but overall it flows well.

James Higgins
