The critical consensus

The subject matter is bleak and the comedy is sometimes grimmer than the grave, but a first-rate cast makes this a left-field local hero of a film.

Donkeys is a strong follow-up to its feted predecessor, one which benefits from the change of tone that establishes it as a film in its own right.

It’s slight in the extreme, but there are enough lively scenes to keep it interesting and it’s always nice to see Cosmo on screen, here looking very much like a Scottish Robert Duvall.

Paul Greenwood, Evening Times, 07/10/2010

Donkeys isn't a disaster, but it is disappointing that it couldn't rise to the challenges set for it.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 09/10/2010

At 78 minutes, it's not a substantial piece but there is enough to linger in the mind.

Is it as good as Red Road, which was the best Scottish film of the century so far? Of course not. Is it better than half of the British films released year in, year out. Definitely.
