Well-meaning and undeniably energetic, but also unsure of itself, fitfully sputtering and tonally jagged.

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

...a rowdy, raw Irish comedy, which goes down like a slug of cheap whiskey.

A mean-spirited movie with not just one character you don't like but a whole host of people you couldn't care less about.

Like a loud and intermittently charismatic drunk at a dreary dive bar, Intermission grabs your attention, but in no time you're looking for the nearest exit.
