Packing two terrific turns and an offbeat spirit, this coming-of-middle-age comedy is an unexpected treat.
70
Village Voice
Elegant, engaging meditation on displacement and the modern man.

Variety
This engaging character study functions best as a two-hander: The male leads build a wholly believable, offbeat co-dependency, while their interactions with others tend toward the more generic.
50
A very sympathetic turn by Colm Meaney both lends box-office appeal and helps Byrne pull back from the saccharine possibilities inherent in the premise.
40
Time Out
The fact that director Darragh Byrne has laden things with a Celtic Whimsy 101 score and a sketched outline of a script makes it even tougher for Meaney to lift this film out of its social-drama rut.

The Guardian
Parked putters, but doesn't go anywhere.
40
Parked collapses into sentimentality that not even an actor of Mr. Meaney's dignity and restraint can redeem from mawkishness.
25
Slant Magazine
The film takes dramatic material that sounds fairly standard-issue to begin with and proceeds to uncover precious little of genuinely fresh intrigue within it.
