With or without you

Another rare Irish movie - this one is told from the middle-class Loyalist side in the North. It's a 'comedy' about a childless married couple. One day a pen pal arrives from the continent. Nothing happens! Yes, they do get to sing that U2 song - badly. It's a terrible, terrible movie full of obnoxious people. The only interesting part was when the pen pal wanted to go to a ceili only for Eccleston to reply that it's really for the Catholics! A predictable and badly handled ending on a beach. This gets my vote for one of the worst Irish movies of the '90s - that's quite an achievement!
