  1. Those needing their Irish fix will be satisfied and no doubt will leave the theater in far greater spirits.
  2. Modest and prosaic, with an unfortunate fairy-tale ending (yes, it features Tom Jones).
  3. It flies apart when it clumsily introduces humor at a funeral or an application for death benefits.
  4. Has an episodic rhythm and little dramatic tension.
  5. Reviewed by: Jan Stuart

    Huston is a sucker for sentiment, and Agnes Browne is a sap's holiday.
  6. Great slabs of blarney are washed down with tears and Guinness in this yarn about a struggling Irish clan, and the resulting sentiment is blatant enough to wake Ned Devine.
  7. Soft-boiled blarney so sluttish with Hollywood clichés it could've been made in Burbank.
