I used to work someplace where the radio was on all day* and whenever Maeve Higgins came on I'd reach for the headphones. I couldn't understand what was supposed to be funny about her. Of course maybe she's improved since (that's at least 10 years ago)
(* that I subsequently wrote a song about, as yiz know)
I saw it, I thought it was alright. It's not really that funny, small laughs for the most part.
I think the best thing about it was the editing, which was used very well and also well done in both visual and sound. I didn't like the music so much, it was all fairly standard fare, but like I said the sound editing/foley stuff was well done mostly.
I do think the actors did a very good job with what they had, and I get what the review says about Maeve Higgins having the worst performance of them all, BUT at the same time it seems to me like maybe her character is the one that kind of has the least to work with and I'm not sure how much she could have done about that. And maybe that character will appeal a lot more to a certain kind of person, it's just not shit I find that funny. Yer man playing his possessed wife was brilliant on the other hand, I'd say that was the best thing about the whole film, and the satanist lad was really good too, you wonder would they not have just got Pierce Brosnan to play himself for that one.
Oh also some of the shots were really nice too, good cinematography.
Overall I'd say enjoyable enough film that is pretty well made, I don't think there's anything in the performances that ruins the film. What is pretty clear though is that although it's all well done, there's a lack of comic timing all round that stops it being hilarious. I think that comes from the direction mostly, the directors do a good job with other aspects and there is some good creative editing that works very well but it feels like it's missing the great comedy actors and the timing being nailed down it for it to be as funny as it wants to be.
