The Yank

 

84 minutes · 2014

Comedy
A blue-collar guy in Cleveland (Sean Lackey), pressured by his Irish-American parents to settle down with an Irish-American wife, travels to Dublin for his best friend's nuptials and falls for the Greek maid of honor (Niki Spiridakos). One can't write off this low-budget romantic comedy completely—its handmade quality and its exuberant performances by a mostly amateur cast can be charming—but the cliché dialogue, stereotypical characters, and cheesy, G-rated humor belong in a sitcom. Lackey, who directed his own script, seems to have put zero consideration into the visual design; his best decision is to let Fred Willard, as the protagonist's father, improvise his own lines. With Colm Meaney.
