It’s Saturday night and here’s a little movie suggestion in case you need a good laugh. The Young Offenders is available on Netflix now and you do not want to miss this little gem.
Inspired by the true story of Ireland’s biggest cocaine seizure in 2007, The Young Offenders is a comedy road movie about best friends Conor and Jock, two inner-city teenagers from Cork who dress the same, act the same, and even have the same bum-fluff mustaches. Jock is a legendary bike thief who plays a daily game of cat-and-mouse with the bike-theft-obsessed Garda Sergeant Healy. When a drug-trafficking boat capsizes off the coast of West Cork and 61 bales of cocaine, each worth 7 million euro, are seized, word gets out that there is a bale missing. The boys steal two bikes and go on a road trip hoping to find a missing bale which they can sell so as to escape their troubled home lives….But Sergeant Healy is in hot pursuit.
So here’s a bit of original Irish comedy, sharp witty script and funny as fekk. There really isn’t much more to say, its great all the way through – there’s not a single bit fault. Acting, soundtrack, script, characters, story – completely great. Don’t miss it.
Here’s a trailer:
