If you're looking for a cozy Irish movie that will make you giggle a couple of times, this will do. Just keep in mind, it could be a little awkward and cheesy in the same way How I Met Your Mother is. Also the sound editing is poor. Be prepared to turn it way down when a song starts playing and turn it way up when anyone starts talking.
A complete GEM of a movie! The little seaside village on the Isle Of Man is filled with unforgettable characters, not the least of which are the two main plotters in their scheme to enrich the entire village from the lotto. The winning lotto ticket, which Ned Devine held but alas, was unable to claim, is the focus of this sly and witty comedy, and the hilarious efforts to highjack the ticket as "what Ned would have wanted" will have you laughing out loud along with a tear or two. And the musical score is unforgettable. Don't miss it!
“Waking Ned Devine” is hilarious. It is an Irish movie about the shenanigans of Ned Devine’s fellow villagers during their frenzy to cash in on Ned’s windfall after he dies of shock with the winning lottery ticket in his hand. The aerial shots of the countryside and quaint village are delightful, and the gaunt motley actors are fantastic in their portrayal of the townsfolk. The Irish accent was sometimes a little difficult for our American ears to decipher, but thankfully, we were able to back up and replay the few problematic scenes. The segment of Ned’s naked friends racing on bicycles to cajole the rest of the villagers to agree with their devious plan and the segment of the final hurrah of the village’s female curmudgeon are rib ticklers for the ages.
