    An irresistible Irish comedy, lovingly told, beautifully acted and graced with the perfect balance of chuckles and bittersweet heartache.
  2. Lots of lively tunes and spirited acting.
  3. 70
    The film's modest charms are ingratiating and sweet, thanks to Colm Meaney's hilariously salty lead performance and a soundtrack that channels the warm spirit of traditional Ceili music.
  4. 60
    This uninspired comedy drama seems to have been bankrolled by the state tourism board, yet the Celtic music sequences provide welcome relief from the reheated plot.
  5. 50
    County Clare holds little of interest, with a generic story line and a cast that's mostly just going through the motions.
  6. Isn't a total loss, but neither does it have the charm of "The Full Monty" or other feel-good indie Brit flicks it emulates.

    This movie is just wonderful! The soundtrack is amazing, and Andrea Corr is a really good actress.
