THE misadventures of feisty Dublin matriarch Agnes Brown (Brendan O’Carroll) transitioned seamlessly from stage to the small screen in 2011 with the birth of the BBC sitcom Mrs Brown’s Boys.

Creator O’Carroll cast numerous relatives and friends in supporting roles, ensuring that the programme was a family affair. Now, Agnes and her crazy kin stampede onto the big screen under the watchful eye of director Ben Kellett. Agnes proudly runs a fruit and vegetable stall in Moore Street Market, but a dastardly developer intervenes. Agnes resolves to take on the Irish establishment aided by a troop of blind trainee Ninjas tutored by Buster Brady (Danny O’Carroll), an alcoholic solicitor and a barrister called Maydo Archer (Robert Bathurst).
