Waking Ned Devine

"Good"

Waking Ned Devine Review


With more naked Irishman than any other film this year, Waking Ned Devine is a pleasant and breezy comedy about a tiny Irish village and its one Lotto-winning resident, who dies after the shock of winning. A scheme is cooked up to collect the winnings in his stead. Happy comedy. Light on the finish, though.
