People Are Howling Over The Irish Accents In Emily Blunt's New Rom-Com 'Wild Mountain Thyme'

People Are Howling Over The Irish Accents In Emily Blunt's New Rom-Com 'Wild Mountain Thyme'

The trailer for Emily Blunt's new rom-com Wild Mountain Thyme has dropped - and let's just say, the cast's accents have raised a few eyebrows.

Set in Ireland, and starring Christopher Walken and (real-life Irishman) Jamie Dornan alongside Blunt, the romantic movie has been dubbed "a crime against Irish accents".

Ouch! Watch the full trailer here:

Viewers took to Twitter to voice amusement and confusion over the actors' attempts at authentic Irish tones, with some questioning whether the movie was 'a parody'.

"I am only managing about ten seconds of the Wild Mountain Thyme trailer per attempt and my thoughts and prayers are with all actual Irish people at this difficult time," commented one viewer.

Another wrote: "This is a crime against Irish accents and one of the people in the film is Irish."

"Tis a fine bunch of Oirish accents, teh be shuer, teh be shuer," quipped a third commentator.

To make matters worse, Twitter accounts for The Leprechaun Museum and Dublin Airport joined in the rinsing.

"Even we think this is a bit much #WildMountainThyme," joked museum staff.

While Dublin airport's Twitter account chimed in: "Begorrah & bejasus, even the Leprechauns have disowned it."

Another despairing viewer asked: "Is this a parody? Even Jamie Dornan's Irish accent is awful."

Adapted from the play Outside Mullingar, the play follows Anthony (portrayed by Jamie Dornan), who works hard in the fields under eyes of his overbearing father (Christopher Walken).

Anthony's father has threatened to leave the family farm to Adam, Anthony's American cousin Adam (Jon Hamm), which causes tensions to rise in the family.

Meanwhile, Anthony seemingly fails to notice that his childhood friend Rosemary (Emily Blunt) has been pining for him for years - until a land dispute changes everything.
