Critic Reviews for The Van
This third movie from novelist Roddy Doyle's Barrytown Trilogy is as good-natured as The Commitments and The Snapper but far less consistent.
The movie builds its comic scenes by close observation.
Audience Reviews for The Van
I've always game for those droll little UK comedies, but this one notably disappointed me. Superficial and lightweight. Doesn't resonate as emotionally true. And Donal O'Kelly is not appealing at all. Another major problem: drunken Irish accents. I'd say that I understood about 95% of this film's dialogue, but no more than that.
