Charming performances and easygoing humour are the strengths of Jones's enjoyable Oirish romp.

Some funny parts, but kids may not be interested.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie features an unmarried mother who refuses to disclose the father of her child. And, there is a good deal of very black humor, including some shenanigans with a dead body, which some children will find upsetting. But others who enjoy wicked jokes will find this movie delightful, and it can lead to a good discussion of the morality of the decisions made by the characters and what they are likely to do after the movie ends.
