Storyline

Waking Ned Devine, The lucky winner of the national lottery is Ned Devine, so taken by his good fortune that he now can’t be waked, because he died from the shock of it! News of the win spread quickly in the scenic little Irish village of Tully More, but not the secret news of Ned’s demise. With lottery officials closing in to confirm the prize claimed by the deceased Devine, Ned’s closest friends scheme to keep the prize money close to home, in memory of Ned of course! But as the plot twists humorously, they learn it is hard is to keep such a secret in a small town.
This is a beautiful little film!

Offbeat and Hilarious!

 
This is one of my all-time favorite movies, complete with belly-laughs galore! I’ve always been a fan of off-beat, less-than-commercial stuff that doesn’t rely upon the standard comedy formulas– there’s no run-of-the-mill, cheap stereotype stuff; they don’t do repetitive physical humor that gets one laugh for every ten tries; and the shallow, vulgar humor to which so many of us Americans have become accustomed is nowhere to be found. Waking Ned Devine caught me from the get-go, with the opening scene with the lottery and apple tart being my all-time favorite in movie history. The wry, offbeat, and somewhat dark humor is good stuff in my book, though I guess (from the looks of a previous review) it’s not quite for everyone. It’s been a while since I last saw the movie, but I still remember the pigs, intestines, the mad dash on the moped, Ned’s dentures, mexican crisps, and the sea-bound telephone booth like I watched it yesterday! Then there’s the funeral service, the wake, and the beautiful closing scenes, all of which add some good, clean emotion to the humor. I think I’ll watch it again very soon!
