Although Mrs Brown is set in the real place of Finglas, a northern suburb on the outskirts of Dublin, a lot of the film "Finglas" was actually shot in the immediate area around the Dublin Fruit Market. This is the area immediately north of the River Liffey, between Church Street and the real Moore Street. See more »

I am a massive fan of the TV series and was really excited to hear that a movie was being made. It had some highlights but overall it was major disappointment. Sadly, much of the humour was very unoriginal or very dated (reminded me of Les Dawson) or low brow stereotyping of the Chinese and Russians that was so bad I actually cringed rather than laughed. There is something wrong when the funniest bit was the outtakes shown during the final titles.
I also found the sound track to be a bit over the top.
Guys you are better than this movie, the TV show proves this - maybe the formula simply does not port well to movies.
