Mild-mannered schoolteacher Brendan (Peter MacDonald) is a man caught up in his own obsessions and out of touch with all those around him. However, when he meets the mysterious and kooky Trudy (Flora Montgomery), all that looks set to change. Trudy is a burglar and it's not long before Brendan agrees to come along on some of her midnight raids, a decision which leads to a variety of comic - and romantic - consequences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny & tender 1 April 2002
By A Customer
If you enjoyed Roddy Doyle's other films, you'll love this one. Full of fun and some wry asides on the Celtic tiger economy, it's a romantic comedy that can be appreciated by both sexes.
It's a crying shame that films like this don't get the distribution they deserve. Who needs another High School teen horror when you can watch something as intelligent and charming as this?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great off-beat comedy 25 Jun 2006
Shy, opera singing, movie-buff school teacher Brendan falls for the brash in-yer-face blonde Trudy who turns out to be a burglar. Which is a relief for him as he suspects her of being the masked female castrating vigilante who is attacking men. Slowly he turns away from his old stuffy persona to using Iggy Pop to illustrate his school lessons. Oh come on Brendan sing the Penis song again. Some good movie trivia plants from the obvious visual tributes mainly to A Bout De Souffle from the first film poster onward to more subtle tilts at Once Upon a Time in the West and many others, just freeze-frame the sign outside the cinema and who does not want to see Oskar von Hamme in Remedial Action, as well as a longer version of Flora Montgomery in the Song of Bernadette.

When he finds she is a thief Brendan even helps Trudy out, comically robbing a model village and its inhabitants and refusing to make love until the exhibits have had their faces turned away from him.

You must see this at least once.

4.0 out of 5 stars Irish but not too quirky 6 Aug 2010

A very enjoyable film with lots of filmic references which I enjoyed.
The script was a bit thin in places which was a surprise given the writers.
Good fun

Roddy Doyle always captures my attention with his Dublin wit. The acting was true to life .Superb casting and acting performances.
