"Kiss me, I'm an Irish terrorist!"
2 stars

Let's eat, drink, be merry and have bad accents.

Brad Pitt and Irish accents do not go well together.

The plot's a mess, Pitt's accent is lame, Treat Williams is a terrible bad guy and Harrison Ford just seems tired. Let the guy take a nap already.

It's hard to enjoy a movie when Pitt, one of the stars, badmouthed it before it opened. When your cast has no faith in a movie, it's hard for an audience to have faith in a movie.

Not horrible, considering the talent involved, but way below expectations for the talent involved.

Why did Reuben Blades die? That was dumb, too.
