John Patrick Shanley created the classic Moonstruck (1987). In Wild Mountain Thyme, both Emily Blunt and Jamie Dornan are fantastic. It is always great to see Christopher Walken in a film. I actually really missed him once he was off the screen. He looked as though he was really enjoying himself. Apparently, in Ireland the Irish press expressed shock and disappointment in the horrible Irish accents in this film prior to its release. This is really not a good film but I secretly loved it!
