A real gem. I've watched it so many times already, and never get tired of it. Funny, and touching. It really moves you.

What a wonderful film. The lead actors are absolutely terrific. Ian Bannen in one of his best roles. The film is an absolute delight, the humor is unforced, the joy of a small village is fully captured, and life long friendships are more important than mounds of money. I don't anyone who could watch this film without letting out a chuckle, a smile, or a laughfest at times.

This is a grand movie indeed. The tipoff that this is a very rare movie is the amazing number of reviewers that have reported that they have viewed the movie multiple times. This one will take it's place next to the likes of 'A Christmas Carol', 'Casablanca', and others on this lofty plateau. Buy this if you don't own it. You'll never regret it.

I have purchased this movie three times--twice I've given it away and I'm keeping this last copy for myself. It is simply delightful--the actors are actual elderly Irish men and women. There are no cariacatures; the characters are people you'd want to meet and share a pint with. Too often US movies appeal to the famous names and faces, whether they are realistic potrayals or not. The story line, while perhaps unplausible, is truely entertaining and delivered in such a way as to make it believable. The humor is gentle, not demeaning or insulting, and well delivered. I'm not of Irish descent, yet after each time I watch it I find myself wanting to visit Ireland---so charming is the scenery, the story and the characters. It remains my favorite movie and I never tire of watching it. I highly recommend it for anyone desiring a relaxing, entertaining movie. It is neither high action nor high stress, but offers a truly enjoyable experience.

This is a great movie that must be seen by everyone considering its great cultural aspects and wittyness. Hilarity will ensue! Watch out!

If I were ''all thumbs,'' they'd all be turned up for Ned Devine! A gem of a movie about life, death, greed, friendship and the awe-inspiring power of good luck. To top it off, Shaun Davey has written one of the loveliest scores I've ever heard.

Truly a movie with a sense of place ... you come to know and love all of the characters, and you wish them well for the future when the credits roll. It's a sad parting, but a funny and wonderful place to which to return.

I haven't laughed so hard in a movie I laughed for hours after it was over.

I watched this movie in 2000 and I just HAD to have it. Funny thing is, I didn't buy it until just this year when I was fingering through the comedies. Brought it home and made the man of the house watch it, who is very picky with his movies, and he absolutely LOVED this movie. It's a must have if you'd like to just sit back, have a pint and a laugh. It's superb.

This movie has been a jewel since I first watched it in 2000, and with each subsequent watching, I find more beauty and enjoyment. The basic values in life are brought out through comedy and love. Great movie, great actors.

This movie is one that is funny in a number of places. You will want to see it more than once. And the music at the end is great.

Waking Ned Divine is a very good movie. It was touching, funny, and a bit suspenseful.

It seemed like this movie lasted 5 hours. It moved so slow that it was excruciating to watch. I saw the title on this list and was curious what other reviewers had written, and thought I should weigh in to give some balance. If you like a slow movie, this is the one for you.
