Movie Info

This Irish-British road movie follows the misadventures of some Irish ex-cons. When Dublin hood Tom French (Tony Doyle) comes down hard on slow-witted Anto (David Wilmot), Git (Peter McDonald) intervenes and then is assigned a mission. He is ordered to travel to Cork to bring back French's friend Frank Grogan (Peter Caffrey) and the money Frank in holding. Along for the ride is French's associate Bunny (Brendan Gleeson). The two rescue Grogan from gunmen, but Grogan claims to know nothing about

Almost perfect.

Well-acted crime drama, though the thick accents might be off-putting to some.

This good-natured, rough-housing Irish comedy is one of those buddy pictures where two oddly matched chaps thrown together by caustic Fate eventually save each other's life and become the best of buddies.

It's a tribute to Conor McPherson's richly detailed script and the fine performances by McDonald and Gleeson that they genuinely do grow on you.
