Gavin & Gavin (2 stars)

This article is from 2008

The two bickering Gavin sisters pillage their Irish heritage to offer up domestic skits and 'aren't the Oirish funny' jokes while lamely trying to undercut their nice-girl personas with misjudged vulgarity bombs. When they reach an anecdote about secretly loving being forced to do a 'turn' on stage at family functions, it seems as though they are still there but playing to a much less indulgent crowd.
