      Film Threat

      Those expecting that a movie about an occult sacrifice to ever become scary will be disappointed with Extra Ordinary. The filmmakers use the trappings of that kind of film for an all-out comedy. Thanks to its nonstop jokes, strong, likable characters, and marvelous cast the movie is hysterical.

      Los Angeles Times

      Like those cheeky genre-splicing comedies that came before it, the Ahern-Loughman collaboration doesn’t merely goose the boundary between charming and outrageous, it gleefully tramples it into oblivion.

      Austin Chronicle

      It’s a scrummy omelette of a movie, a dish that’s off the menu. The ingredients are unorthodox, but they come together in an uproarious way. As a Dubliner would say, it’s absolute gas.

      The A.V. Club

      Some jokes may dissipate quickly, but its unusual warmth lingers in the air like a friendly ghost.

      San Francisco Chronicle

      Armed with wit and charm to spare, Extra Ordinary is joyful and creative and deserves to find an audience — in this world or the next.

      Screen Daily

      The humour is low key, repeatedly mining the juxtaposition of the supernatural and the banal; a likeable performance from Maeve Higgins is the picture’s driving force.

      The Hollywood Reporter

      A well-tuned vehicle for the comic charms of Irish stand-up Maeve Higgins.

      Extra Ordinary is a kind of tea-cosy “Ghostbusters” that’s consistently funny in a pleasingly off-kilter way.
