A self-centred, pampered celebrity accepts a drunken bet that will change his outlook on life. On his funny and heart-warming journey around the coastline of Ireland, he meets a series of bizarre characters, falls for a feisty radio reporter and takes his fridge surfing. Written by Tony Hawks and based on his worldwide bestseller, this comedy road movie proves that, no matter how gloomy things seem, open the fridge door and a little light comes on. Tony takes the lead role and is joined by a stellar cast of comedians including Sean Hughes, Ed Byrne and Josie Lawrence. Special Features: Story Behind The Fridge Fridge Interviews

Have you ever made a drunken bet? Worse, still, have you ever tried to win one? In attempting to hitchhike round Ireland with a fridge, Tony Hawks did both, and his foolhardiness led him to one of the best experiences of his life. Joined by his trusty travelling companion-cum-domestic appliance, he found himself in the midst of a remarkable adventure, at times emotional, at times inspirational, but more often than not, downright silly. Only in the magical land of Ireland could such a notion lead to such fruitful adventure. Here is his record of the unlikely pair's fortunes as they made their way from Dublin to Donegal, from Sligo through Mayo, Galway, Clare, Kerry, Cork, Wexford, Wicklow, and back again to Dublin. In their month of madness, Tony and his fridge met a real prince and a bogus one; they surfed together and entered a bachelor festival; the fridge was christened; and one of the pair had sex without the other knowing. And unexpectedly, the fridge itself became a momentary focus for the people of Ireland. As the days rolled by, the fridge grew into a personality in its own right, developing its own identity and bringing people together wherever it went. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tony Hawks.
