    A decent but slow movie. Overall it was enjoyable, but at times it failed to adhere to the principle of Chekhov's Gun. Couple that with the excessively simple and mildly gruesome resolution and it's hard to call it anything but decent.

    Although it is more of a lighthearted drama than a straight-up comedy, "Waking Ned Devine" still presents a wholesome message and some delightful performances.

    An unabashed excursion into feel good territory.

    Predicated on the slimmest of notions, this debut by Jones is so cuddly-cute in its desire to be pleasing that it's all but transparent.

    Writer-director Kirk Jones has the movie roll over, fetch and chase its own tail in order to make you love it.
