Just as the charming British film The Full Monty told the story of simple men willing to shed their clothes for money, Waking Ned Devine is the story of older Irish men who pursue money and take off their clothes. Commercial director Kirk Jones makes his feature directing debut with a story about a small town in Ireland called Tulaigh More, where one of their 52 inhabitants wins the lotto jackpot of nearly seven million pounds. When nobody claims it, the town goes on a search to find out why. They find the winner, old Ned Devine, dead -- a smile on his face, clutching the winning ticket. Well, in Ireland, the lottery winnings must be claimed by the purchaser, which puts the town in a spot -- if the lottery officials discover Devine dead, he forfeits his money. What ensues is a community coming together in hopes of getting his money to split 51 ways. What they learn is the importance of friendship and the true value of money. To reveal any more would spoil some major surprises, but suffice it to say, it involves aging actors David Kelly, 69, and Ian Bannen, 70, naked. Chris Gore, Rovi

One of the best movies I have ever watched. Clean, hilarious, a movie I can sit down and watch with my Dad and my great nieces and not have to worry about language/violence/etc. Great movie.

Will put a smile on your face
This film in Ireland Isles is just one of the sweetest and dearest stories about the people of the islands and when they have a chance to win the Lottery by a friend who died. It keeps you on the edge wondering how they are going to pull it off and the surprise at the end makes you stand up and shout----and have another beer!! Love it.

Unique storyline and funny!
Set in Wales, this is the story of a little town of 53 people who share in the winnings of the lottery. There's lots of humor, fine character acting, and a surprise ending that will make you laugh out loud! The scenes with the little old man riding his scooter in the buff was so hilarious, we had to rewind, rewatch, and laugh again! Delightful!
