Cute movie, but been there, done that.
on May 25, 2008
Irish Jam is a cute story, pretty well written, and pretty well acted, and filmed in a beautiful locale.
It is the story of a con man who goes gooey, and buys his own con, or goes good, depending on your perspective (The Music Man, Curley Sue etc, etc.). A fatherless child sees the good in a hustler that no one else can sense, and then changes his life. There are some funny parts, lots of stereotypes, a far fetched romance, and a happy ending.
All in all, not a bad way to spend an hour and a half.
