The great thing about Intermission is that you barely have time to spot the gaps.

Not real Irish, but the movie kind: the latest to stumble off the [John] Ford assembly-line.

Such are the dangers of teaching foreign cultures to yelp like Reservoir Dogs.

Intermission bursts with the energy of a documentary filmed on the run with a stolen camera.

Intermission is the first movie in ages to show us what Irish native Hollywood star Farrell is capable of.

Invigorating fun -- cheeky, saucy, a bit crass and just drunk enough on its own sense of playful invention.

Very, very funny, thanks to a lively first script by Mark O'Rowe, who has a good ear for earthy dialogue and a sense of life's absurd little synchronicities.

The cast is strong enough to overcome the more frantic moments and lend some weight to the characters.

Often unsettling -- random acts of violence outnumber those of kindness. But it's also touching, startlingly original and even profound.

A virtuoso act from beginning to end, juggling violence and farce, coincidence and luck, characters with good hearts and others evil to the core.

There are some genuinely funny moments... There also are some genuinely horrifying ones. The problem is, they never really mesh.

Visceral thrills and mordant humor are on this film's agenda, and it serves up both in style.

Working off a very funny and intricately formulated screenplay by Mark O'Rowe, what Crowley gives us is an entertaining example of Irish-Alt cinema ('alt' standing for both 'alternative' and 'Altman').

First-time director John Crowley and novice screenwriter Mark O'Rowe -- both Irish theater veterans -- make impressive movie debuts as they sketch a huge gallery of colorful characters, beautifully portrayed by a top-drawer cast.

It's as if Crowley, a theater director, took Pulp Fiction as his guide without understanding its appeal.

A tedious and under-inspired comedy about a dozen all-too-ordinary Dubliners leading lives of not-so-quiet desperation that intersect with one another improbably.

A gritty tapestry embroidered with the light and dark chiaroscuro of wit and sorrow, Intermission is a jagged hymn to transience and the self-discovery it offers.

A fairly saccharine collage of self-redemptive gestures and happy endings that, true to its title, only fitfully compels.

The first Irish creation I've seen in ages to pull off the high-difficulty feat of trafficking in grit, drollery, and emotion without turning to blarney as a crutch.

Armed with playwright O'Rowe's fresh dialogue, the characters are a treat to get to know, but the most intriguing thing about the film is the always inventive way in which their lives intersect.
