If you want a charming and amusing break from the disfunctions of the "real world" this is your film.
Best movie we have seen in ages! A truly funny, warm story without any slap-stick, rude humour! It is a good representative of what life is for some Canadians and there is lots of good Canadian humour in the movie. Well done and kudos to all involved!! Love the scenery, too!
Loved the movie, great actors ! Nothing was missed in this movie, had it down to the old blankets, old pillow slips, wallpaper on the walls, etc.. I look around at the background to make certain that I don't see modern things and I couldn't find anything! Well thought out movie... great job..
I couldn't wait to see it from the moment that I heard they had started filming. After a forever wait, I was thrilled to see its AFF premiere. I'm not sure what I had anticipated, but it surpassed all of my expectations. It might possibly be my all time favourite. I would highly recommend seeing it to everyone, and have done so on numerous occasions. I can't wait to buy it, providing me with the luxury of watching it any time that I need an emotional hug! Oh...to the person that said Taylor has come a long way from American Idol days...take two...I believe you must be thinking of Taylor Hicks...our Taylor (Kitsch) is Canadian.
Love, love, love this movie!!! Will be purchasing this when it comes out on blu ray.
Completely engaging, and delightful! I loved that there was no need for special effects, overkill action scenes, or gratuitous sex. Instead, we watched superb acting, excellent writing, and sensitive directing, which resulted in a hilarious, poignant film.
My kind of movie. I loved it.
Delightful, hilarious, and touching.
Charming, delightful, Canadian movie you could take your Mom to see! Saw it twice, liked it as much 2nd time. Highly recommended.
Loved this movie. Great cast and loved the scenery
I loved every minute of it! The story had a serious theme - the plight of small communities when their mans of livelihood disappears. We never lost sight of that. BUT -the movie was hilarious, the acting of not only the brilliant main characters (Brendan Gleeson and Gordon Pinsent were amazing! Taylor Kitch was handsome, endearing and charming))but everyone was excellent and made the absolutely unbelievable story utterly believable. This movie is a - must see. Congratulations to all involved!
This is definitely the movie of the year for me. Loved every minute of it. The storey, the actors,and the scenery ... All wonderful. A must see!
Wonderful cast. Great story. Loved every minute of it. Gordon Pinsent and Mary Walsh together. I laugh just thinking about it.
Excellent, very funny with a great Newfoundland cast including Mary Walsh and Gordon Pinset. Well worth seeing.
Loved this movie. The Canadian humour was fantastic. Brought my 12 year old son to it and at first he was worried because everyone in the theater were adults but he laughed along also
Such a great Canadian Film!
Charming, very funny and PG
Loved it! ... and loved the music! Soundtrack?
5 Stars all around. I'd go again so any laughs
So refreshing to see a flick that relies on acting not special blow em up effects. The audience was LOL time after time. Excellent.
very entertaining movie .loved it
Best movie I have seen in a very long time!!
Most boring, uneventful movie ever. Bunch of old white men in the cast with no diversity. Not even any women to see either - and I'm a woman! Blah!
Wonderful movie - Loved the acting and the scenery was spectacular. Well worth the money.
Good clean movie...something to smile about!
Just pure entertainment! The best movie in awhile.
This was a Fantastic Movie!! I would watch it again!!
Don't miss this lovely and charming movie... Laugh out loud funny. Great performances and terrific story. If that's not enough, the scenery is spectacular.
What can I say that hasn't already been said? First Rate, First Class, if your a Newfoundlander, go see it, then go see it again for the first time. Bravo
Absolutely loved this movie, would go to see it again..Recommend it to everyone..funny, great acting, scenery and everything about it.
I know some might find this a little slow, but it was so well thought out and the acting was great. I would definitely go see it again. A surprise hit in my book
Very funny and well acted, you are transported to "the rock". Must see, not restricted to Canadian humour.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. This is one of those rare treats that satisfies the need for great acting, laughter, sensitivity, and beautiful photography.
