Crime, Comedy
In a rowdy little corner of Belfast, hapless young father Jimbo Reagan is having an unlucky week. Indebted to big-time gangster Mad Dog Flynn for $5,000, Jimbo decides to knock over the local fish market, only to find out post-robbery that it's a front for Mad Dog's illegal operations! On the lam with nowhere to turn, Jimbo holes up in a local antique shop and things go from bad to worse when he unwittingly takes five hostages. Shop manager Joe Maguire (Brendan Fraser) is one of these wrong-place-wrong-time hostages, but the situation proves to be serendipitous as Jimbo and Joe unearth encouraging discoveries about their intersecting pasts.

Shifting gears from weightier films like Hotel Rwanda and Reservation Road, Terry George (a two-time Oscar nominee for screenwriting and a winner this year for his short film The Shore) entertains with this madcap Irish crime comedy rife with amusement. Brendan Fraser charms, and a colorful cast of character actors bring delightful energy and wit, including Dublin-born Colm Meany as crotchety Detective Inspector Weller and Scotsman David O'Hara as Flynn.
