Cast: Colm Meaney and Donal O'Kelly

The third film based on Roddy Doyle's Barrytown Trilogy finds two entrepreneurial Dubliners bumbling into business with a ramshackle chipper van. Let's just say they're not natural businessmen — one customer gets served a deep-fried diaper! Alone, the film is an endearing character study; together, with the other adaptations of Doyle's works, The Commitments and The Snapper, it completes a poignant triptych about blue-collar Irish.
