A sprightly pace and a fatalistic sense of humor propel the proceedings over a generous amount of drinking jokes and other cliches of Irish life and culture.

It offers few surprises, but the strength of the performances, and Beresford's touch as a director make it a worthwhile diversion.

Old fashioned spirit and resolve work well in a movie like 'Evelyn.'

Here's a sweet film to rent for Father's Day or Christmas. It's a heart-warmer, charming, and shot with a sugary cinematic eye.

Fluffy, light-hearted and with a nicely comic script that sparkles with all the warm glow of an Irish picture postcard, Evelyn is an enjoyable 90 minutes of unashamedly clichéd shamrock shenanigans.

Yes, it's a bit warm and quaintly Irish (down to the freckled children and rosy-cheeked barmaid!), but it's also a crackling story about the difference between the law and justice.

A film for those that rarely go to the movies 'because they don't make movies like they used to.' Well, apparently they do...

Adults might find the movie on the slight side, though it's a good choice for family night viewing.

Director Bruce Beresford follows a straightforward and predictable path, yet succeeds in pulling your emotional strings even when you know what's coming.

Beresford nicely mixes in as much humor as pathos to take us on his sentimental journey of the heart. It really is a shame that more won't get an opportunity to embrace small, sweet 'Evelyn.'

She is cute and she is good and in the end she loves her Guinness-breathed daddy and that's all that really matters anyway, isn't it?

I can't say as I was surprised by a single scene in Evelyn, and yet, despite all the manipulations of the script, the film is so sincere and good-hearted that it won me over anyway.

Enjoy it for what it is; you can hate yourself later.

It's the relationship between Desmond and his daughter Evelyn (Sophie Vavasseur) that gives the movie its heart and emotional heft.
