    Featherweight tale of Guinness-guzzling bachelors.

    A sweet film, mildly pleasant to watch, but it's not worth the trip or even a detour.

A delightful film in which the fish are out of water in their own pond. The men in a small Irish village cannot see their own perfect mates right before their eyes. It takes both the promise and threat of exotic newcomers coming to the village to make them realize that what they wanted was there right in front of them whole time. Fun and charming film with plenty of character. Expand
