1.0 out of 5 stars Angela's Ashes unplayable Feb. 1 2012
I thought it might be my player, so I ordered a second when the first was unplayable. The second Angela's ashes was unplayable as well. I got a couple friends to try on their players and no, no play. Then I found out it's because it from the UK, so unplayable!

3.0 out of 5 stars Captures the hardships, misses the humor and spirit March 18 2002
Angela's Ashes is based on Frank McCourt's best-selling memoir about growing up in the 1930s in a poverty stricken family in Limerick, Ireland. The movie tries valiantly to be faithful to the book, and even the author has been endlessly quoted as to how fine an adaptation it is. Yet something has been lost in transition, and sadly it is much of McCourt's dark and often rude humor, which is one of two elements that made the book so readable. The other element was his writing style, which is marvelous. I will return to the humor issue later.
After falling to succeed in New York, the McCourt family was forced to return to Ireland in 1935. Frank notes that they may be the only Irish family in history who immigrated back to that [then] miserably poor nation with it's [still] warring Protestants and Catholics. Within three years, the family loses three children to disease. When they first move back, they live in one room. When they finally get a rundown two-story row house, its front door opens onto the communal outhouse. It rains a lot in Limerick, and water runs into the first floor most of the year. The family resorts to living upstairs.
Dad [Robert Carlyse] has difficulty finding work, and the family lives on the dole [welfare]. The cards are stacked against Dad. He is a Protestant in a Catholic town, he is full of pride, and he drinks. On the rare occasions he finds work, he drinks the pay away and ends up getting fired. He is the primary reason the family is so poor. Carlyse plays him as an intelligent, affable but weak man. Much has been made about this character. How could any father and husband sit by and see his family suffer so much? Carlyse said in an interview that he finally decided to play Dad as what he must have been - an alcoholic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Product March 15 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bought this movie for my brother, but he was unable to watch it because it would not play on his DVD. After he received the DVD I went back through the reviews to find most customers had this problem. The customers should made aware this might happen. It shoud be listed with product information.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sent from the U.S. to Canada in UK format! Jan. 13 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was very unhappy with this shipment. I love this movie and was very excited to receive the item within about 2 weeks of ordering it. When I tried to play it, I discovered that it would not play in my Blu-ray/DVD player and upon checking the back of the movie sleeve, discovered that it was manufactured in the UK and was therefore not compatible with Blu-ray/DVD players used in the U.S. or Canada. I can't for the life of me understand why an American company would send me a UK disc! I have sent it back by mail (Dec. 31, 2012), but have not yet received (Jan. 14, 2013) either a replacement DVD and credit for shipping costs, or a full credit including shipping costs if they cannot provide the item I need. I will update my review if I get any action on this item.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Movie Oct. 19 2003
By Cally
This movie was indeed a great movie. The depiction of little Franky McCourt was great. The flick managed to pull through and follow the book at a whim but not by much. Key events and scenes are taken place but I think it lacks the true emotion of Francis McCourts story. Bottom line is READ THE BOOK.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy what you are having Aug. 26 2003
McCourt's story began with an unimaginable mixture of tragedy and shame; feckless and drunk, the family's father, Malachy, a man from the north, failed to provide for his wife and children for their new life in America. Their baby sister Margaret died in their squalor and they had to return to Ireland.
It just liked a fate to their family, poverty and hunger. As Frank said in the film, his dad is made up with three sorts of people. In the morning, he's a good father who loves his children and tells some stories to them. In the afternoon, he went to find jobs but usually with no results. At night, he used the money from rage or even family to the pub. Then he came home drunk at night and sang some Catholic songs.
Frankie's childhood was harsh. He lived to take care his brothers and sisters and also faced the death of his sister, Margaret and twins brother. When he returned to Ireland with parents, the problems become more and serious. At that time, he was only five, going on six. Under the poor condition, he got typhoid and conjunctivitis which almost killed his life. Within these months, he read many books of Shakespeare. Although he was in the hospital, it's so lamentable to see that the condition was even better than at home - at least he got enough food and the living place not so damp and dirty.
For getting more money, Frank's dad went to England and find jobs. But he has never sent them back money. At that time, Frank knew that all he could do was - finding jobs. Then he followed his uncle and distributed the coal. But the worst was - it nearly blinded him. After that, his mother moved to live with the relative who is fat, ugly and hateful. He always asked Frank's mother did all the things for him.
