Another year, another Irish-American release. This one has a wedding party visit the old country and travel from Dublin to Clare. The best man and chief bridesmaid don't get along but you'll never guess what happens by the end of the movie? Much humour from how the Americans adjust to Ireland: the weather, breakfast, roads, pubs, etc. The script is good but nothing else is, including dreadful camera work and direction. Many scenes have characters appear out of nowhere and step into shot. Some funny stuff include watching the football game from 1994 and the cranky landlady. Strictly straight-to-DVD material but worth a look.

Rather sad article in today's Irish Independent newspaper about Ireland's most overrated female film director. She's been abroad...
