THE GUARD (John Michael McDonagh, 2011)

***
UK
Brendan Gleeson plays Eddie Murphy, Don Cheadle plays Nick Nolte, instead of San Fran we're in Limerick, Ireland, and instead of 48 hours it takes a few more days to allow for some Sundance workshop soul searching.

The actors are game and it's all pretty harmless really, but this kind of slightly snarky, self-referential skewering of genre clichés has by now become something of a cliché itself.
