      Audience Member We saw this film on an Aer Lingus flight, it is hilarious. Unfortuately does not seem to have been widely distributed. It's a great story, well-acted, lots of laughs and a great story. As usual the critics slam it, IMO the critically acclaimed films are often a pretentious BORE (just like those who review them.

      Donald Clarke Irish Times The excellent cast just about make the creaky old farce tolerable. Rated: 2/5 Oct 14, 2016 Full Review Michael O'Sullivan Film Ireland Magazine At best, it can be recommended to those who admire Pat Shortt and are willing to see anything he does, but there is so little offered in the film that it will inevitably plummet into complete obscurity within a year at least. Oct 21, 2016 Full Review Aine O'Connor Sunday Independent (Ireland) The Flag will prove divisive, giving fans of slapstick a hearty guffaw, while anyone favouring subtler humour will possibly be less amused. Rated: 2/5 Oct 18, 2016 Full Review Sinead Brennan RTÉ (Ireland) The Flag shows that a good idea can only take you so far, and a better idea would be to consider seeing a different film this weekend.
