The Upcoming UK ★★★★★
“There are very few dull moments in the film as we go from joke to joke and from slapstick action sequence to the more heartfelt scenes. The performances of the two central characters are great and manage to effortlessly combine the faux macho posturing of teenage boys”.
The Independent ★★★★
“The Young Offenders is a hoot – another in the long list of Irish shaggy dog story-style movies made in recent years. Writer-director Peter Foott fills the film with slapstick and with plenty of scabrous, witty dialogue”.
“A classic movie double act is born! It captures everything that makes Ireland so special – it’s very funny, outrageous, and full of heart. Sell all your cocaine and buy a ticket to see this film!” Graham Norton
