Easy going Irish comedy
20 September 2002 | by microx96002See all my reviews

Milo O'Shea steals the show in this easy going film version of Lee Dunne's "Good-bye to the Hill". Raunchiness of Dunne's novel has been watered down for film, but if you're looking for 90 minutes of old fashioned "stage" Irishness with a touch of sixties free love thrown in, then this is OK. Similar to it's contemporary Quackser Fortune has a Cousin in the Bronx (Gene Wilder, Margo Kidder) also 1970, but not quite as cute.
