  • Summary: Peter McDonald and Flora Montgomery make an insanely appealing mismatched couple in this fast and fresh romantic comedy for movie maniacs. He wants to show her the glories of pre-Star Wars cinema. She wants to teach him her burglary skills. Kieron Walsh directs from a riotously funny script by Roddy Doyle. (Shooting Gallery) Expand

  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
    If you're charmed from the outset, this is an enjoyable trifle; if you're not, it never gets any less mannered and convinced of its own wit.
  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.
