In a small town in Ireland named Tulaigh More, one of the 52 inhabitants wins the lotto jackpot of nearly seven million pounds. When nobody claims the loot, the town goes on a search to find the winner. However, all they find is old Ned Devine dead, a smile on his face, clutching the winning ticket. In Ireland, the lottery winnings must be claimed by the purchaser, which puts the town in a spot -- if the lottery officials discover Devine dead, he, and the town of Tulaigh More, forfeit the money. Hilarity ensures when the community embarks on an outrageous scheme to claim the winning lotto ticket! But in the process, the townsfolk learn the importance of friendship and the true value of money.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A genial, feel-good item.
Fresh: If this film doesn't make you want to smile, you've no one to blame but yourself.
Rotten: It's instructive that Waking Ned Devine is being so aggressively sold as a feel-good comedy; the "good" feeling in question is called condescension.
Excellent and very clever!
I love this movie from the first scene to the last. Funny, great Irish music, lovable and memorable characters. Worth your time.
This is my absolute FAVORITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME. Now, if you are a person that must have lots of action, this might not be for you. Or if you have trouble following quiet plot twists. But really the first time I saw this I was literally rolling on the floor, but my tastes go right in line with this movie so just watch it and see what you think... Clever premise, great characters, catharsis.
I haven't enjoyed a movie this much in years!
I was worried this movie would be too dark or too weird, but I smiled from beginning to end. I think I'll buy this one!!
