Superbly funny and a fantastic adaptation from the book penned by real life genius that is Roddy Doyle!!
Such a good man that dad... Bless them Curly's
This is my favorite Colm Meaney movie. He's a father who loves his family. Ruth McCabe an Meaney actually looks like they belong together. The kids are perfect for their family. An support her to the end.
Joyful and positive film!
As Macho Man Randy Savage would say: Snap into it! Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh yeah!
Offbeat, a bit contrived and one note (how many bar scenes/drunkenness/barfing, and how much yelling can we have?), but also charming and illustrative of a tight Irish clan in the 80s/90s. While not played as a straight drama, it is much more drama than outright comedy. I was hoping to laugh more, but found Colm Meany's evolving father figure to be an interesting sub-plot in itself that added to the depth of the story.
It's a comedy about a very young woman (maybe early 20s) who gets pregnant, but somehow the dad ends up being the focus of attention.
Somewhat dated, but great acting by Colm Meaney (the father) and Ruth McCabe (the mother). Enjoyable.
"The Snapper" is not a bad Irish movie or a good Irish movie but it is sort of a mixture between everyday life, not only in Ireland, but all around the world. The story tells about a young woman named "Sharon" played by Tina Kellegher who is pregnant and is finding it hard to tell her parents that she is pregnant, not only is she afraid to tell her parents she is pregnant, she is also afraid to tell her parents who the dad is, although there is some confrontation between her and her family about who the dad is. Desmond "Dessie" Curley, Sharon's dad who is played by Colm Meaney is just as struggling as Sharon is by finding out who the father of Sharon's baby is but not only is a very keen father, but he also got a heart and loves Sharon and shows it in most scenes. He also loves his own time, like going down to the pub, and have a few pints of Guinness with his friends. He likes to talk to his friends if he has a problem and some times goes with what they say and sort of makes him feel better. The story is also a general story where it is very hard to be pregnant at young age, and she is also finding it hard with everyday life, with people calling her names under the sun, making horrible remarks about how she is.
End of review.
Very, very funny. The dialogue, the situations, the quirky characters, everything. And the acting, exaggerated but still realistic, was a treat.
