Classic comedy western following gang leaders Butch and Sundance as they evade the law on their escape to Bolivia. Happy Death Day 2U. Mickybo is Catholic, JonJo is Protestant, but they are friends anyway. They run away from home and want to get to Australia. Agree with all the previous positive comments about this terrific, underrated little movie. Do I Need a Licence? Especially with tag lines stating that this film comes from the makers of Billy Elliott and starring Julie Walters, Adrian Dunbar, Ciaran Hinds and Gina Mckee, I would have thought this film would have been pushed a lot more, however I am sure you will enjoy the film as much as I did!
Classic comedy western following gang leaders Butch and Sundance as they evade the law on their escape to Bolivia. As another reviewer said, it wasn’t about the “Troubles” or our presence over there, but it was a magnificent backdrop to the film. Leader rating This film has not been rated by a club leader yet. Niall Wright isn’t an actor I have seen in any other movie, I might have to watch other movies with him, while I will admit that I sometimes felt he was a little annoying I will however still state that he actually is also a lot likable and acts very genuine, and his role is defiantly not an easy one so he did extremely well for such a young actor. Mickybo and Me 7. The acting of the two young boys is the best that I’ve ever seen from children, Mickybo in particular stole every scene that he was in. Do I Need a Licence? It did have a few scenes that were out of place but I still rate it 10 in my book.
Man With a Plan. Don’t have an account?
His life seems really bad until he meets a young protestant mifkybo called Mickybo, the two break into the cinema and become obsessed with “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” this leads the two onto a journey to Australia on the run from the law.

Sometimes however I am happily surprised to find that some of these movies in the end have me enjoying them. Back to top Load more Viewing 0 of 0 Storylne found. Mickybo’s Da Gina McKee The scene towards the end of the handover at the border is very true, as an outsider coming into Northern Ireland I have seen how some perceive it as akin to the Berlin wall, whereas in reality it is quite insignificant.
In the stage-play, the scene when the lads run away to the seaside and come back literally takes a minute. I didn’t realize how much I enjoyed it until I heard myself describing it to friends when I got back to the U.
I watched this film not knowing what to expect We are in and going to the moon, etc and still thinking that one way is better than the other.
The two boys act very well and the end of the movie is surprising. It was really a big problem for me to understand the talking from the amd in this film.
Strong message, good story and funny, worth watching. I hired it out from the video shop on a whim and it completely blew me away.
They share an obsession with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid andd, with the consequence that they run away to Australia. Nevertheless, an important film to see. Mickybo and JonJo are two of these young beings who simply don’t see the things the way we adults too.
Classic comedy western following gang leaders Butch and Sundance as they evade the law on their escape to Bolivia. Mickybo is Catholic, JonJo is Protestant, but they are friends anyway. It would be nice to see Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid before watching the film, just so you can catch all of the inside jokes, but it’s not very necessary.
The story of two friends from different backgrounds is definitely nothing new, and Miclybo also shoryline think it was told in any storylibe new way. Too many people are judgmental. The acting was exceptional and it had sotryline comically and emotionally galvanised all the way through.
It is a praise for friendship but thank God without Disney-like sentimentality – even if it is touching at times. This film has not been rated by a club leader yet. I will however still state that it probably also depends on what movie he was cast in, some just don’t work and others nad, some actors are fit for their role while others aren’t, and this is where I will begin the review of Mickybo And Me that in fact did have me watching it all the way through. In The Name of the Father Powerful drama based on the true story of Gerry Conlan, an Irish man who spent 14 years in prison for a deadly terrorist pub bombing he didn’t commit.
Can’t wait to buy it on DVD, does anyone know when the release mickyno is? I enjoyed all the performances. It did have a few scenes that were out of place but I still rate it 10 in my book.
They live in Belfast, a beautiful city that is unfortunately terrorized by bombs and religious division.
Especially with tag lines stating that this film comes from the makers of Billy Stotyline and starring Julie Walters, Adrian Dunbar, Ciaran Hinds and Gina Mckee, I would have thought this film would have been pushed a lot more, however I am sure you will enjoy the film as much as I did!
Set against the backdrop of the Troubles, the film charts this imaginative pair’s mischief making, as they imagine themselves to be stoeyline from justice like their idols, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. After watching their heroes at the movie theatre they see daily life as a scenery for the adventures they create on their fresh minds. That is the whole story, which in a way is kind of pathetic, but it is the way that the story is fed to you that pulls you in, I am not going to go into detail about how this works instead I will simply just say that it works.
It is about the loss of innocence in a tragic environment and two friends trying to hold onto what little peace they have left. Micky Boyle nicknamed Mickybo and played by John Joe McNeill – a consummate troublemaker and one child of many in a large Catholic family – and Johnjo Niall Wrightan only child torn between the attentions of his mother and his maritally unfaithful father.
Drab, unimaginative, predictable – and with all the usual suspects. If you don’t know the whole story of north and south Ireland I do recommend reading it up before reading any further. At all it would be a great choice to watch the movie,especially because of the funny scenes, So don’t wait and watch it.

I thought it was good how they dealt with the Northern Irish situation without making it feature in every scene as some have done. The story is about a young catholic boy called John Jo who leads pretty normal life, his life starts to go wrong when his dad has an affair with the woman from the cinema and his mum moves out into his Aunite Ritas.
