Storyline

"Irish Eyes" explores the relationship between two Irish-American brothers in Boston born to immigrant parents and raised in a rough, working class Irish neighborhood. After watching their father being gunned down in front of their eyes as children, Thomas and Sean Phelan grow up building their lives on opposite ends of the law. Thomas, the studious and responsible brother, creates a better life for himself through education and hard, honest work. Eventually, he builds a successful career as a US Attorney. Sean, the more rebellious of the two, gets caught up in a life of crime and rises through the ranks to become the head of the Irish Mob. Spanning from post World War II during the late 1950's through the Irish Mob wars of the 1970's and culminating in their adulthood in the 1990's, the story is set to the backdrop of backroom politics and the realities of the Irish Mob and it's gang wars.

Worst Movie Ever
15 December 2006 | by (Long Island, NY) – See all my reviews

The plot was dull, the acting was forced and uninspired, the accents were unbearable, the direction was not present, the film itself was out of focus. Writer/Director/Actor/Producer Daniel McCarthy must have forgotten to include focus puller in his list of responsibilities.

I only wish MST3k was still on the air, this beats Manos: The Hands of Fate for the worst movie ever made. I saw this at the New York premiere and asked the projectionist about the film being out of focus and he told me he spent much of the running time trying to fix the focus only to realize it was the film itself which was out of focus. Despite all of these factors I stayed through the four times I expected the movie to finish and then kept going for another twenty minutes until it finally came to an anti-climactic and predictable end. It is no wonder why they had to get a new film editor during post-production.

I recommend this film for the U.S. government as an alternative to traditional torture techniques as this is far worse than water boarding, not to mention they have to watch Daniel Baldwin fail to act his way out of a paper bag or donut box. Whatever the title of this movie is watch at your own risk. If I had Bill Cosby's money I would buy the rights to this and destroy any record of it. I can only hope Writer/Director/Actor/Producer Daniel McCarthy does not inflict any more damage to the minds of unsuspecting film goers ever again. Horrible, just plain horrible.
