Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Almost perfect."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"It's a tribute to Conor McPherson's richly detailed script and the fine performances by McDonald and Gleeson that they genuinely do grow on you."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International

‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com

‑ Brandon Judell, Critics Inc./America Online
"This Irish crime charmer has 'the gift of gab.'"
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
