Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
The movie luxuriates in cinema references while laughing at its own fetishes -- a neat talent.

It's a winning little movie about two people who get together, though they have no business getting together.

Chicago Tribune

By Michael Wilmington
This is only a movie. But a good one. May Roddy Doyle give us many more.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
It has that unwound Roddy Doyle humor; the laughs don't hit you over the head, but tickle you behind the knee.

New York Post

By Lou Lumenick
A too-cute-by-half Irish romantic comedy that's overloaded with movie references that begin with the title.

Mr. Showbiz

By Cody Clark
McDonald makes for an appealingly befuddled bloke, and the sprightly Montgomery would turn any blighter's head. In a better movie, we'd care about what happened to them.

Trudy is really the only character with the "Barrytown" zest, and Montgomery throws herself into the role with unselfconscious abandon. She makes the screen crackle with energy.
