Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Van

This movie is a hilarious account of two down-on-their-luck Irishmen who decide to convert an old van into a chipper, a mobile fish and chips vendor. Oddly enough, Larry (Meaney) and Bimbo (O'Kelly) find success and all of Larry's family has to chip in just to keep up with orders. There are funny confrontations with drunken soccer players and "heavy metalers". The success of the business puts a strain on both Larry's family and his friendship with Bimbo, but the will to survive and pursue the dream is enough to get them through.
