Irish Jam Review
This movie is really nothing more than a goofy comedy to showcase Griffin's hip chattiness. What makes it worse than King Ralph is that it tries to become a morality play. I never had any delusions of it being a landmark piece or anything like that seeing as how my brother paid $3 for it at Zellers. But the fact that it even tried kind of bugs me.
So, we've established that it's a bad movie. But it is really an entertaining movie as well. Griffin's antics, while not as good as Undercover Brother, are still quite fun to watch. And the supporting bits from the villagers are pretty fun too.
If you're in the mood for a straight to DVD "classic", I would say see it. But if "so bad, it's fun" or goofy lead acting is not your thing, give it a miss. But, for me, it isn't a bad way to waste an hour and a half.
