News & Interviews for Waking Ned Devine
Critic Reviews for Waking Ned Devine
Though it strives for broad humor, pushing cuteness and light irony, this bland 1998 movie isn't exactly a comedy.
Charming performances and easygoing humour are the strengths of Jones's enjoyable Oirish romp.
Audience Reviews for Waking Ned Devine
Charming Irish comedy with a pretty dark but nevertheless sweet sense of humor about a small village trying to find out which one of their own won the lottery millions, discovering quite a bit of a surprise. The mostly aged cast delivers lovable and quirky characters you easily cheer for. Once the dilemma is on the table things maybe go a little too smoothly, so the plot could have used a turn or two more in the second half. But that doesn't take anything away from how enjoyable this film is. The Irish countryside and soundtrack add up to the quirky, traditional feel of the movie that makes it hard not to be absolutely enchanted by the story.
Weird, I thought I rated this already on my Gx acct? Just watched it again, 2 old farts, 1 small village and a winning lottery ticket. My kind of funny ^_^
Oh so funny!
