Great movie. DRY humor. Fantastic.

The west coast of Ireland is cold, damp, windy, and rural. People who live there are stuck in time. The local constabulary keep the peace. Scotland Yard they are not. The \"Garda\" (Gaelic for \"Guard\") are a proud lot. Can they run with the big dogs? Find out. Funny, sad, profane, uplifting, and tragic all at once and in large doses. Bring your Irish to English

Great comedic acting on parts of both actors. Unpredictable plot. Some very quotable lines throughout.
