Feel good funBy rkeen (1 review) from London , 27 May 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]In a sleepy Irish village, nothing much is happening and the only exciting part of everyone's week is when the local band play in the pub. Then with job cuts and no prospects of financial security, local postman, Podger Burns (Cornelius Clarke), hatches a plan to hijack a shipment of viagra and together with his bandmates (John Lynch, Lochlainn O Mearin, Cian Barry), the heist is set in motion. This is a fun film. Full of Irish charcter actors, bursting with charm, this is an ideal way to spend 90 minutes. There are some truly comic moments and the dialogue cracks along, sometimes drifting into Spike Milligan surrealism. There's something for everyone here.

Better than you thinkBy a customer , 19 Nov 2013to be honest I never heard of the film before finding it here, but it turned out better than I expected it to be, nice easy film to follow and good bits of humour dotted around plus the random recipes in the credits gave me a smirk.
Terrible MovieBy a customer , 26 Jun 2013I am usually up for some homegrown comedy but this is a terrible movie with some horrific acting and accents, usually ranging from crap irish to australian with a little scottish thrown in. 2 hours of my life I will never get back.
Holy water waste of time...By Pootage (11 reviews) , 23 Jun 2013Had such hopes for that unique brand of Irish humour. It's possible that I'm just in a bad mood - I didn't think so. But 20 minutes in and I haven't been even close to laughing.
Must see good fun..By walker1984 (11 reviews) , 21 Apr 2013It's like that terminator film were that terminator fella 's going round terminator people. Favourite quote from the movie it's an irish gem this one got to watch it.
Waste of timeBy Idontknow (5 reviews) , 14 Apr 2013Daft and not funny. Very poor storyline that goes from stupid to ridiculous. Didn't make me laugh once, actually I don't even think I cracked a smile. Not the worse film I've ever watched but very close. I think I've been very generous in giving it one star.
