Christopher Walken is in it, so his accent was destined to be terrible. (How could you make a voice like his sound Irish?) Emily Blunt doesn’t fare any better. Somehow Jamie Dornan’s is the worst of the lot – and he’s from Northern Ireland...
Suffice to say, the nation of Ireland was slightly offended.

But wait, there’s more.
Wild Mountain Thyme is actually the film adaptation of Shanley’s own play, Outside Mullingar, which ran on Broadway in 2014. The Irish Times called it “mystifyingly awful” – shall we call it mixed reviews?
And as one Twitter user pointed out, the accents were just as laughable in the stage version. Case in point: Debra Messing.
We must never forget Debra Messing’s accent in the play Wild Mountain Thyme is based on. https://t.co/5cZpjLRuqo
