Eddie Griffin's Irish Jam

Some things are so bad, they're good. Other things are so bad they make you want to stab yourself repeatedly in the forehead with your own eyeballs:



Strangely enough this one went straight to DVD in 2006... In the US and, erm, Serbia. Worry not however, as it's now also available in Ireland. Phew!

I personally aim to slap everyone who's ever seen this movie.... it shouldn't take long and will be very cathartic...

Yes it is shockingly bad .... but watched it with mates last night and we turned it into a game ... predicting scenes (music stopping like blazing saddles) ... predicting lines ("I'll make an honest woman of you") .... the kid talking eventually. Possibly the worst film i've ever seen. The village was .... i'm lost for words. The street wasnt even paved, sheep wandering the streets, people dressed like they had survived the famine, one car (an old morris van). Surely it was filmed in some themed folk park ...

I got this out from Laser the other night, thinking it might be one of those SO bad it's good type flicks. But it was just bad. I lasted about 15 minutes and had to turn it off in disgust.
Anna Friel, you should know better.
It was filmed in Cornwall. Begarrah jasus mary and joseph and the donkey me poteen.
Big ups on the blog nominations my man! See you at the awards no doubt!

This film had a typical and simple plot carried off in a pleasant non-overwhelming fashion. It was fun to watch, went through the usual ups and downs, and ended ... (can't say). If you like a movie that you can watch more than once, this is it. Basically, it is a story that addresses cultural stereotyping at it's core, but the simple love story and fun activities tend to overshadow the seriousness of that problem.
