Based on the third of Irish writer Roddy Doyle's "Barrytown" trilogy, following THE COMMITMENTS and Frear's THE SNAPPER. This heartwarming exploration of working class Dubliners struggling to get by features the gritty and realistic dialogue of Doyle's own life experience, as well as superb character acting from its all-Irish cast. A pair of unemployed suburban Dubliners (Colm Meany and Donal O'Kelly) decide to renovate an abandoned fish and chips van to start their own mobile fast food business. Much to their suprise, their new business becomes wildly successful, landing the two life-long friends in numerous outrageous business dilemmas as they juggle fast food fame with their wives and eccentric families. Full of heart and big on laughs, this tale of working class triumph is a sweet and moving tribute to Doyle's Ireland.
