    Is it a comedy?
    When is it supposed to be set?

    I’m looking forward to seeing it, for all the wrong reasons.

    When is this supposed to be set? It looks ancient but then Emily Blunt mentions freezing her eggs?

    The American audience will lap this up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 56,364 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    It's based on the play Outside Mullingar which had a run on Broadway 5 or 6 years ago starring Debra Messing it closed in less than 2 months.

    John Patrick Shanley wrote it he won an Oscar for Moonstruck.

    Iris actors that put on ****e Irish accents need to ridiculed relentlessly

    Is this the Irish version of Moonstruck, Emily Blunt taking Cher's role

    Even if they had proper accents it still would be awful. Its like they have based this off Darby O'Gill.

    You'd expect better from Emily Blunt, this just seems way beneath her. Same with John Hamm. It looks like made for TV ****e by someone who has never been to Ireland


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,840 ✭✭✭✭ snoopsheep


    looks an absolute shocker tbh

    John Patrick Shanley (writer and director) is probably the type of Irish American that think's he's really, really Irish but is in fact very, very American.

    Christopher Walken’s Irish accent is gloriously bad.

    The film looks like it was shot for the budget of a cheaper episode of Fair City. Fascinating they managed to get big name actors for something which looks so hilariously amateurish.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,353 ✭✭✭ tonycascarino


    This will probably be the next PS I Love You movie that Yanks will go crazy for. I am not so precious about the crappy Irish accents as I am all for Hollywood selling anything Ireland related.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,722 ✭✭✭ El Rifle


    Sometimes I think we don't realise how the accents in the irish countryside really sound. Take for example these boys in the Dail , whom if anyone from outside the island was watching might think some these guys slept in the fields.


    Im pretty sure I've heard Irish people living in Ireland with far worse accents then those in that trailer!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,743 ✭✭✭ Heres Johnny


    Accents sound like the family guy episode when they come to Ireland. And that's a parody. Peters dad is called mickey mc finnegan, wouldn't be surprised to see names like that in this too.

    The whole setting and timeframe looks weirder than the accents. Is it modern or pre independence or what?

    Amazing you would even hire him for this. The only accent Christopher Walken can do is Christopher Walken.

    Look sure let Jamie off Irish lads are sexy at the moment so might as ride the wave

    Maybe it's the 1980s they were kinda both

    Or it's about whatever planet the Healy-Raes are from

    Maybe "Outside Mullingar" will be looked back on someday as Ireland's "Springtime for Hitler"


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 40,086 ✭✭✭✭ Harry Palmr


    This certainly looks like it could have cult classic status thrust upon it, ideal for a group watch.

    I think the point is we have so many genuine different Irish accents - and yet Hollywood Irish is none of them. Just some Blarney O'Gill leprechaun mashup.

    But then maybe only the Irish can recognise this, and we're not gonna kill the box office.

    Going by certain parts of Ireland if the actors wanted to sound authentically Irish they should just use their American accents

    The phone in this clip looks to have been released in the late 80's / early 90,s

    There was one listed on adverts as 1987 year model

    Why is he interfering with himself with the door open. Is he watching someone down the hall

    I'm surprised the film is depicting the Irish as having telephones at all and don't just send our messages across the fields on horseback.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,786 ✭✭✭ wakka12


    Goodness me, can this be a real movie? And such a major cast OMG what were their agents all thinking some kind of collective lapse of common sense in hollywood?

    Whatever about the other's accents wtf is jamie dornan doing this man is from ireland. You'd think he never visited the island before going by his attempt an irish accent

    Sure my parents still have that type of phone, as I'm sure loads of others do.

    I never knew I wanted to hear Christopher Walken attempt an Irish accent until now.

    Parodies not taking long
