great depiction of life in the 70's.....very true to life for those of us who lived our lives with true \"white irish dirinkers\"!! Great portrayals by all actors and wonderful chemistry between Nick Thurston and Leslie Murphy!

I saw this movie at the Toronto Film Festival and I thought it was GREAT!! It had everything, humor, drama, action, great acting and I loved the music! It was a sold out theater and the audience was laughing, cheering and at times, crying. I'd like to see it again.

I went and saw this movie when it premiered in LA, expecting to see abunch of white guys drinking and ended up walking out with a new movie on my top 5 list. It is one of those movies that delivers on every plain while keeping it real and not using those special effects. Watching the struggle of a man trying to become a better person and lift himself out of his current scituation really hit on

I thought this film was very captivating. The acting and story were phenomenal. If you're into crime/dramas, I would highly recommend it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and everything that it brought to the table. I felt the story was extremely well written and the film was brilliantly cast. Newcomer Nick Thurston delivered a brilliant performance and really put himself on the map I feel. I also really enjoyed watching Karen Allen's performance for I thought she did an amazing job at bring the character to life

As you might have guessed from its title, Drinkers is as full of cheap sentimentality and predictable behavior as a Hell's Kitchen bar would have been in the 1970s. Full Review

Time Out New York
Atmosphere and acting can't save a script filled with easy-target irony ("Who ever heard of gettin' rich from workin' with computers?") and a plot that telegraphs every left turn miles in advance. Full Review

New York Daily News
There's an unexpected appeal to John Gray's modest drama, emanating from its center. Full Review
Joe Leydon
A modestly engaging domestic drama that earns few points for originality but rewards aud attention with persuasive performances, outbursts of robust humor and a vivid yet understated evocation of time and place. Full Review
Kyle Smith
New York Post
Writer-director John Gray, who created "Ghost Whisperer" on TV, is a son of Brooklyn whose love for the borough is as thick as a pint of Guinness, and he keeps finding fresh ways to present familiar plot points. Full Review
