Wendell Everett (Don Cheadle) is an FBI agent, and just a little high strung! He’s been sent to an Irish village to investigate some international drug dealers. He’s up against local cop Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleeson) who seems set on driving Wendell insane. Gerry is not really up for the level of this case, and is really happy with the humdrum normal life. He also zings Wendell at every turn which drives Wendell nuts. But when it comes down to it, he’s a fitting partner in crime fighting.

This movie was really funny. Some of the quips in this movie stayed with me a long time after the movie was finished. It actually really cracked me up from time to time. The characters are spot on. Don Cheadle was absolutely born for this role. But Brendan Gleeson brings it all together. I really thought the film was very funny, and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Granted the bad guys are really cardboard cutouts and very caricatured, but the movie is not about them anyway, so that didn’t bother me. It was the battle between Wendell and Gerry is classic.
