Beautiful film, a joy to watchBy Moose from Greater London , 14 Oct 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]I first saw this three or four years ago, and the characters and the beauty of the film shone in my mind so vividly I couldn't help watching it again. Superb acting, the setting and casting is brilliant, and Roddy Doyle's dialogue is sheer genius.
One of the funniest films I can remember seeing, the dialog is sharp, witty, and cutting, keeping you rolling along with the fantastic story line. Even with such a funny script, the film is powerful in other respects - and the characters are so strong and well-developed you can't help being taken along with them for the ride.
Without doubt one of the funniest, most powerful, moving, and memorable films of all time. See it. Now.
10/10 - Sheer brilliance

Good film, Probably wouldn't watch again though.By Teeman89 (18 reviews) , 19 May 2013With all the great reviews i expected something really amazing. The film on a whole is quite predictable, however the performances are really good. Some of the characters we never really get to know much about. Overall a good film that kills a couple of hours but probably wouldn't bother watching again.
What's not to like?By homemademarmalade (1 review) , 15 Mar 2013This film lived up to expectations....quirky working class Dublin - passionate and very funny, with a great soundtrack, highly recommended.
amazing filmBy cheesekake (1497 reviews) from uk , 12 Aug 2012i have seen this film so many times before but still love it every time.
its just got everything, good music, a couple of nasty bits, but mainly really good fun and some hilarious bits too
A must see for any over 15 year oldBy a customer , 10 Jan 2012Saw this when I was in my late teens and rented it again so our 16 year old son could see it. He wasn't too bothered to see it but we 'forced' him and he absolutely loved it. My wife and I really enjoyed seeing it again too. A must see, particularly if you like music and down-to-earth humour !
Thoroughly entertaining, hugely enjoyable.By urchin (12 reviews) from Swindon , 22 Aug 2011Terrific film - a real laugh, great director, original and some great soul music. I watch it a while ago and enjoyed it equally the second time round.
