Audience Reviews for Divorcing Jack


Funny black comedy about a journalist Dan Starkey who has a fling with a girl who is then murdered. He is being hunted by everyone for the murder as she was the daughter of a policitan. He sets out to find her murderer to clear his name. Set against the backdrop of the political scene in Northern Ireland, it is satirical, irreverent (with a nun-o-gram striper) and ultimately about love (Dan's wife is accused of murder and then kidnapped).
