The marriage of humor and drama is admittedly imperfect, but it works well enough to occasionally spawn laughter and touch the heart, and there's a crucial scene between Colm Meaney and Tina Kellegher that is beautifully written, acted, and directed.

As always, Colm Meaney is brilliant, rough-hewn and bewildered by the changes going on around him, but determined to figure it all out and help his daughter as much a possible.

The Snapper sees its characters with warmth and acceptance, and earns its laughs by being wise about human nature.
