“The Hardy Bucks Movie” is one of six films showing at Irish Film New York.
RUNNING TIME: 89 minutes
It’s the most successful Irish film of 2013, and also one of the raunchiest comic offerings so far. The Hardy Bucks gang makes their debut feature in The Hardy Bucks Movie, which follows the boys on their journey across Europe. The goal? Reach Poland in time to support the Irish football team during the UEFA Euro 2012 competition. Of course, the trip is easier said than done, with each inappropriate, intoxicated, inconvenience blending into the next.
Eddie Durkan, the self-proclaimed leader of the ‘Bucks is dreading spending another summer bored out of his skull. With no money and apathetic mates, the task falls to Eddie to get them out of Castletown and onto the road in search of football and the craic. A small inheritance and an old van provide an escape plan, but the trip takes a turn for the worse after an unscheduled stop-off in Amsterdam. To pay off a huge strip club bar bill, two of the boys are forced into becoming drug mules. Suddenly it’s not just about getting to Poland to watch football; they need to get there alive, with the ‘package’. With mounting pressure from Dutch and Polish gangsters, the last thing Eddie needs is to bump into his arch nemesis, ‘The Viper’, along the way. Cockayne’s action-packed film is guaranteed to bring the laughs.
Just make sure you don’t bring your grandma.
