The Van

About two unemployed buddies who convert a dilapidated van into Bimbo's Burgers, a mobile fast-food joint selling fish and chips and hamburgers. Bimbo (Donal O'Kelly) is the brains behind the operation, while his slacker friend Larry (Colm Meany) is his bumbling helper. They first set up shop outside a pub to capture patrons streaming out after watching a telecast of Ireland playing in the World Cup. When Ireland is eliminated, the bumbling entrepreneurs move to a forlorn beach. They get the help of Larry's daughter, Diane (Neili Conroy), and son, Kevin (Rauidhuri Conroy), who soon becomes so disgusted with the fare that he becomes a vegetarian. This is the third installment of author Roddy Doyle's 'Barrytown' trilogy, following "The Commitments" and "The Snapper".
