With Irish guts and grit, lives collide, preconceptions shatter and romance is tested to the extreme. An ill-timed and poorly executed couple's break-up sets off a chain of events affecting everyone in town. There's the hapless romantic and his sex-starved best friend, the hotshot detective and the crook he's after, a young girl on the rebound with an older married man--not to mention his deserted wife, an ambitious TV producer, an abandoned fiancée, a… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The great thing about Intermission is that you barely have time to spot the gaps."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"Intermission bursts with the energy of a documentary filmed on the run with a stolen camera."
‑ Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
""Intermission" is a bloke-and-smoke spin on "Love, Actually." It's for women seeking a romantic comedy that doesn't reduce relationships to cutesy-poo homilies. By adding shootouts and car chases, it's slso for guys who are just not that into goo, either."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"Dizzily paced and structured, the Irish import Intermission charms with a never-let-'em-see-you-sweat exuberance"
‑ Jay Antani, Los Angeles Alternative
"A well-acted and interesting dark comedy, but the convoluted writing becomes the big drawback."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
"Not real Irish, but the movie kind: the latest to stumble off the [John] Ford assembly-line."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Intermission is the first movie in ages to show us what Irish native Hollywood star Farrell is capable of."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"A direção bem-humorada e a montagem ágil exploram bem o ótimo roteiro e o elenco impecável."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"...the performances keep things moving, even through some of the more superfluous moments."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It doesn't add up to much profundity and tries too hard to be amusingly quirky."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"Such are the dangers of teaching foreign cultures to yelp like Reservoir Dogs."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"One of those films that should keep you entirely entertained but that disappears from memory almost immediately."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"A gritty Irish Love Actually. No, you heard right..."
‑ Oz,
"Una de esas que, al salir de la sala, te deja con la maravillosa sensación de haber disfrutado una buena película."
‑ Alex Ramirez, Cinenganos
"Attentive viewers will be rewarded with several intriguing story lines, a host of fine performances and a darn good time at the movies."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
