Gal­lagher Hi­lar­i­ous Ir­ish com­edy con­cern­ing two Cork layabouts who head into the coun­try in search of washed-up co­caine. The key to the film is the mag­nif­i­cent comic part­ner­ship be­tween Wal­ley and Mur­phy. Both play de­cent guys at the mercy of their baser instincts. They do ter­ri­ble things, but they are not ter­ri­ble peo­ple. Ex­cept for a mis­guided piece of cast­ing in the last act, this might be a mod­ern clas­sic. 15A cert, gen re­lease, 83 min
