  1. The movie luxuriates in cinema references while laughing at its own fetishes -- a neat talent.
  2. An Irish lark that blows in, trailing daffodils and the sniff of spring, from that adventurous releasing company Shooting Gallery Films.
  3. 50
    Director Kieron J. Walsh never quite figures out what to do with the numerous film references (he quotes dialogue, they reenact scenes), and the resulting uncertainty in tone, which sometimes treats the characters as parodistic products of mass culture, undercuts his later attempts to suggest that their love is authentic.
  4. McDonald and Montgomery are fun to watch in this mildly amusing Irish romantic comedy.
  5. 42
    Lacks the perfect timing, luster and true vitality of its predecessors.
  6. Doyle loves bad jokes and his story has no rhyme or reason, dissolving in its last third into a bungled heist and jailhouse face-off.
