"After discovering that lucky local Ned Devine (Jimmy Keogh) croaked from the shock of hitting the jackpot in the national lottery, Jackie (Ian Bannen) and Michael (David Kelly) mastermind a scheme to impersonate the dead man and collect his prize money. But to pull it off, they'll need buy-in from the rest of Tulaigh Mohr's denizens -- and not everyone is willing to cooperate. Fionnula Flanagan co-stars in this quirky cinematic charmer"

Thankgawd for copy-paste.

It would be the third viewing for me.
I saw it in the theater first, rented it years ago and want to see again.
I guess that describes a classic.

I think I own this movie. Hmmm, I'll have to dig it out for another view. I remember thinking it was a grand comedy.

I love humor when its people being themselves and less than perfect.
