Great fun, but perhaps not everybody's cuppa,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Perrier's Bounty [DVD] (DVD)
I guess, crime thriller comedies are perhaps not everybody's cup of tea. Add to that this film's setting in Dublin, with a north side accent to boot which some non-Irish viewers may find difficult to understand at times (but, hey, there are always the subtitles), and I can see why some reviewers simply don't fancy this film. Perhaps they also don't appreciate the film's bizarre brand of humour, but if you, dear reader, appreciate all of the above, then this is the film for you. I found it truly funny and was delighted by the amazing Irish cast (Murphy, Gleeson, Cunningham, Wycherley, Delaney, McElhatton, Byrne [voice only]), cameos by one of Gleeson's sons and the author Pat McCabe (Butcher Boy, Breakfast On Pluto), and the very funny Brendan Coyle, playing a small role so unlike Downton Abbey's lovely Mr Bates.
To be fair, Perrier's Bounty is probably one of those films which one either loves or hates, but I - for one - thoroughly enjoyed it.
