VOD REVIEW: Extra Ordinary an out-of-this-world comedic experience


Sometimes a film just comes into your life at the right time, and gives you exactly what you need.

In this time of uncertainty and fear, Extra Ordinary was a guiding light, bringing me some true relief and a ton of laughs.

This farce about an Irish driving instructor who must use her supernatural powers to help the daughter of lonely widower Martin is full-blown hilarious, with an amazing cast.

As a disgraced former rock star tries to use Satanic spells to use the daughter to bring him back to his former glory, he’s pushed against from all directions.

Will Forte may be the marquee name — and his over-the-top performance the most immediately interesting — but this film is made by Maeve Higgis and Barry Ward, as the instructor and widower.

This comedy sends up ghostly tropes and with perfect direction from Mike Ahern and Enda Loughman, levitates its way above other comedies released this year.

4/5 Stars
