Jeffrey Dean Morgan,
At the end of the movie, during the initial end credits where a few actors are actually shown and subtitled with both their real name and character name, the actress "Julie Claire as Judy" is incorrectly displayed as "Judy Claire as Judy". Later, the B&W scrolling end credits do have her listed correctly. See more »
After seeing so many mediocre movies in a row, this was definitely a breath of fresh air. To describe it I would say it's one of those off-beat films not driven by a plot but by characters. It reminded me a lot of The Breakfast Club in more ways than one.
As far as the actors, all of them were great and their characters were well defined and easy to relate to. In Fact, another movie to compare this to might be Glengary Glen Ross. It's not the story but the cast that make these films fun to watch. Jam had a great cast.
While I just compared Jam to two classics, I wouldn't necessarily rank it in that category, but I do think it certainly deserves better than it's current IMDb ranking of 5.3. I give it an 8.
