      Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Entertains more than one would expect but misses the mark far too often. Rated: 2.0/4.0 Sep 12, 2020 Full Review Kam Williams BlackFilm.com A fish-out-of-water comedy with Eddie Griffin as a con artist who finds love and a new ease on life in Ireland.

      alt. surf. u Steer clear, not funny at all Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/09/24 Full Review Audience Member Better then expected. This shows what you can do with a shoestring budget I guess. It wasn't terrible or anything but I don't think I would watch it again or suggest it to anybody. Has its moments- like the ending! That was funny! Anna Friel's performance as Maureen was outstanding. Very impressed with her especially towards the ending on the docks. Great scene! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen in my life. Almost every thing about this movie is wrong. It has a funny comedian like Eddie Griffin as the lead, has a fun and goofy premise and manages to squander both. This movie as a whole fails to deliver a single laugh, a cardinal and unforgettable sin for a comedy. This movie strangely feels like more of a drama, but the protagonist and premise are just goofy enough you can't take it seriously. I suspect that this movie was written as a comedy, but the studio decided to rework it as a drama. Interestingly I can see the same failings with this movie that plagued the I'll fated "cavemen" TV show (the tv show based on geikos cavemen commercials. Both pieces of media had a premise based on ethnic stereotypes but were too scared to learn into that edgey and risque type of humor for fear of offending people and becoming controversial. As a result we were left with a boring uninteresting stupor that wastes the audiences time. Do yourself a favor and skip this movie. If your looking for a funny black culture meets white culture, "culture shock" movie try "how high" instead Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member It's sucha different type of romantic comedy but I enjoyed it very much. Its not at all what you would expect it to be. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Off beat, mildly entertaining, culture clash romantic comedy Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member funny .. kinda ... worth the time ..
