This film is about a young woman who plans a masterminded heist. Still, these become a little more complicated than originally planned when she meets two young men, who both fancy her, who quickly find they are not only out of their depths being chased by gangsters disguised as priests but witness a fair few murders along the way too.
Upon watching a few trailers for this film, I finally had time to watch it on Monday afternoon, after I had finished work; however, this film was completely different to what I originally assumed, I knew it would involve some sort of runaway across Ireland, I just was not expecting this film to be as good as it was.
With a great casting involved, especially Alex Baldwin involved, this was a great watch, with characteristic undertones of criminal behaviour, involving two characters who clearly were not prepared for being on the run with Pixie, away from Father Hector (Alec Baldwin) on their trail, they seemed to really fall for her charismatic charm, and at one point, ended up kissing each-other during a make-out session with Pixie!
The key elements of this story revolve around a BIG bag of drugs, which the three young individuals attempt to sell for cash, but fail on several occasions before eventually ending up nearly being at gunpoint with the gangster priest and his friends, towards the end of the film, and the three end up fleeing the scene after a mass shoot out, with a bag full of cash with them.
An all-round humorous film, where, although some parts of the film I was a little confused about (mainly to do with the scripting, relating to the dated humour), I found it a great watch, and usually I would recommend going to the cinema to watch this, however, as cinema will not be open after tomorrow, Wednesday, due to Lockdown, I would keep an eye online for digital release/download, and watch this!
I give this film a 5 star rating!
