Quotes

Maureen Duffy: "Once there was a time," my dad would always say before tellin' us stories that would send me off to my dreams. "Once there was a time when the land was taken from the people and split into parts to be ruled by kings and men and laws. But the people were protected by the magic ones, who sailed out from the mist on ships from the sky, full of light and music and beauty." And it said, by those who ought to know such things, that the magic ones no longer walked among us. But to hear me dad tell it...

Much better than expected
7 April 2006 | by (Trinidad) – See all my reviews

Saw this lurking in a corner of the DVD store and borrowed it on a whim. It was much better than I expected. Eddie Griffin was funny as usual, the beautiful Ann Fridel was great.

Quick outline - village pub in Ireland is about to be sold to greedy land developer. To prevent this, the villagers decide to have an international poetry contest and give the pub to the winner. Ghetto hustler Jimmy Tha Jam(Eddie Griffin), on the run from various creditors and ex girlfriends, somehow wins the contest. Much culture-clash humour then ensues, but Jimmy eventually gets the villagers on his side. Much better than I'm making it sound here. Not too many clichés around, which is nice.

Not to take anything away from Ediie, but I think if Will Smith had done this movie, it would have been huge!
