Short Review of Waking Ned

Waking Ned is a slightly surreal British comedy about a small village where a man wins the lottery, but the shock kills him. The town's close-knit inhabitants feel that it wouldn't be right for the money to just go to waste, and cook up a scheme to keep it in the community by having someone impersonate Ned Devine, the dead man, for long enough to get the money. Not everyone is so happy to play along though...

Slightly slow paced, this comedy is nonetheless extremely enjoyable and delivers a few belly laughs along with a lot of wry smiles. If you like British comedy you'll definitely enjoy this. It always reminds me slightly of the classic Ealing comedy, "Whisky Galore" - if you liked that, I think you'll like this too.
