No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
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.
