The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

An Asian kid in Sligo (Pa­tel) has his easy­go­ing life up­ended when his dad (Ma­lik) ar­rives and em­ploys him to run a halal abat­toir for lo­cal Mus­lims. The open­ing hour is per­fectly grand. All the cast are strong. There are nu­mer­ous amus­ing sub­plots. But the com­edy falls apart in the fi­nal act when the plot takes a baf­fling turn in a point­less di­rec­tion. Nice enough. But un­sat­is­fac­tory. 15A cert, lim re­lease, 94 min
