Finally, a comedy that will make you feel like a million bucks.
In the tradition of The Full Monty comes a "spectacularly funny" (Gene Siskel) comedy about friends pulling together to make a dream come true. When Ned Devine dies from shock after winning the lottery, two longtime friends, Michael and Jackie, discover the body and agree Ned would want them to benefit from his good luck. They embark upon an outrageous scheme to claim the ticket, but first they have to get all the townsfolk to go along with their plan! A "four star triumph" (Washington Times), Waking Ned Devine is definitely the comedy ticket of the year!

Editor's Note
A comedy about the inhabitants of Tulley More, a small Irish town with a population of fifty-two and dwindling. When Jackie and Michael discover that someone in their town has won the national lottery, they intend to uncover the lucky individual and talk him into sharing the jackpot with them. Trouble arises when they discover it's good old Ned Devine, and no longer is he one of the living. The citizens must band together and fool the authorities into believing that Ned is still alive, in order for them to receive the money and share it amongst themselves.
