The 'Hardy Bucks' are a group of bored slackers living in the sleepy hamlet of Castletown. Originally started as a bit of fun on Youtube, the mockumentary was entered into RTÉ's 'Storyland' competition, which it subsequently won. There followed two TV series and a Christmas Special on the Irish national station. In four short years Hardy Bucks have attained over 7 million Youtube views, with over 20,000 channel subscribers and have over 130,000 fans on their Facebook page. 'The Hardy Bucks Movie' sees the lads as they finally leave Castletown and head out on a wild road trip across Europe.
Eddie Durkan, self-proclaimed leader of the 'Bucks is dreading spending another summer 'bored out of his skull'. Ireland have qualified for the Euro's in Poland, but with no money and apathetic mates, it's up to Eddie to get them out of Castletown and onto the road in search of the football and the craic. A small inheritance and an old van provide an escape plan, but the trip takes a turn for the worse after an unscheduled stop-off in Amsterdam. To pay off a huge strip club bar bill two of the boys have to become drugs mules. Suddenly it's not just about getting to Poland to watch the football - they need to get there alive, with the 'package', without getting arrested and without being molested by baboons... And with mounting pressure from Dutch and Polish gangsters, the last thing Eddie needs is to bump into his arch nemesis 'The Viper' along the way...
