This is a very funny movie.  Surprised no one has mentioned it.  I can't remember the name of the actor who starred but he was quite famous (now deceased).  Can anyone help me with that?

Great film, Jean.  A classic, and one of the first movies people mention when the subject of Irish film comes up.

I believe the name of the actor you're trying to remember is Ian Bannen ... is that the one?

I mainly remember the sound-track. Thought it was great.

I remember seeing this. It was great! :

Have to watch this again.  My speakers died also!  So this trailer was a teaser.


Thanks for reminding me, gang.  This one is due for a re-watch!  So funny and light-hearted, capturing much of the rural Irish spirit I believe.  Recommended despite excessive old-man-naked-butt scenes!

I loved this film.  The acting was wonderful; the characters unforgettable, especially David Kelly's character, Michael O'Sullivan.  I'd watch it again in a minute!

Relax and enjoy watching it with a glass of B ulmers in cold Sturbridge. Lived in Leominster for about 5 years and Ma. is my favorite place in US.  Haven't forgiven my husband for moving me- and that ws 30 years ago - but hey, I'm Irish and I hold a grudge.

Love the come-uppance depicted, in such a whimsical, comical and hugely surprising, manner. One of the best Irish films ever made! Trying to avoid a spoiler here.

Definitely one of my favorites!
