Review by Eric (posted on 13-Oct-2010)
IF this movie doesn't have you in hearty laughter I'd say you're as dead as Ned Devine himself.
Great acting, campy setting in rural Ireland (filmed on the Isle of Man)and a keen insight into greed, fate and a town that needs to cooperate to fool the man from the city and cash in a winning lotto ticket held by Ned Devine who died from the shock of winning it.
This low budget film goes a long way with the great cast of characters whom you knew where having real fun in making it.
Tragically the lead, Jackie O'Shea (Ian Bannon)died suddenly in a car crash in his home country of Scotland.
Do you know something we don't?
