As warm and lived-in as an old pair of boots, The Snapper is an honorable feel-good movie.
March 11, 2008
At once realistic and idealised, this is a rare attempt to make drama of ordinary people doing the right thing.
March 11, 2008
Gritty, charming and with a heart as big as the Emerald Isle itself.
March 11, 2008
Well written and directed, The Snapper celebrates common sense and human decency, qualities which triumph over prudishness and restrictive social mores.
March 11, 2008
Casting and playing are uniformly tops, with special praise for Fionnuala Murphy as Kellegher's best pal, Ruth McCabe as the quiet, long-suffering mom, and the five kids as her loopy brothers and sisters.
March 11, 2008
Better-than-average sitcom stuff, enhanced by the lively performances, Doyle's own adaptation, and the able direction of Stephen Frears.

A small, joyful lark of a film.

A charming Irish comedy in the same spirit as Waking Ned Devine. Colm Meaney is far funnier than his Star Trek credentials would suggest.

I can't get enough of those wacky Irish, and this film's got plenty.
