Terry George is known for directing masterful but grim dramas like “Hotel Rwanda” and “In the Name of the Father.” Who knew all along he had a comedy in him? It’s a fish story starring Brendan Fraser as an Irish American working in his cousins’ Belfast curio shop to get away from his crazy wife in Boston. Nearby, a botched robbery at a fish market is in progress, executed by a young man hoping to pay off a crippling debt to a gangster. What he doesn’t know is that the mobster owns the market. George’s stated goal is to make a film about Northern Ireland after The Troubles that would show a humorous relationship among locals, police and remaining British officials. He succeeds brilliantly.
