James and Eoin are down-on-their-luck Irish emigres living in the Bronx’s Woodlawn neighborhood. Lured by the promise of easy money, they agree to place a bet on a horse, but after they bail on the deal, gangsters blackmail them into doing their dirty work. Joining in on their reluctant crime spree is Ruby, a generic manic-pixie-dream-girl type who at first seems to have been written for no purpose—the friends practically ignore her even after she jumps into their getaway vehicle. But that’s the only glaring misstep in a film brimming with witty dialogue and colorful characters. Misty Button is most engaging as it explores whether these two deadbeats have any character beneath their boozy surfaces, resulting in comic and tragic twists and turns, including an uncomfortably funny church scene involving a pedophiliac ghost and experimentations with crack cocaine.
