Ballinagra, the name of the town in the movie is a reworking on the Irish 'Baile Na Gra' which means 'Town of Love'. See more »
The Irish version of the town Ballinagra should be "Baile an Ghrá", not "Baile na Grá" as depicted in the film. See more »
You could never live here.
What makes you say that?
You're a big city kind o' girl. You're-you're Mary Tyler Moore.
Oh, yes. I am so very Mary Tyler Moore. Everyone says so.
No, but you're- It's like you need to be hooked up to the city otherwise your batteries go flat.
Okay. So, I'm like a battery operated Mary Tyler Moore? If you flatter me any more I'm gonna have to toss your pale, Irish ass off the side of this boat.

I am not a short person myself but I am sure that short people are tired of tall leading ladies and tall leading men being in every single romantic comdey or tv. show. So here we have Janeane and whose his face from Braveheart. Both short but both talented. The movie for me was a lot of fun because I love Janeane. When the movie is at its best it is charming. I am a bit sentimental so these type of movies tend to do well with me. I prefer to see Janeane and Miles then Richard and Julia because most of us are more like the latter than the former. Now hold on because I am not one of these people who thinks that all films should be reality driven. No sir I love Terry Gilliam and I want films to take me somewhere but when a film is not doing that please try and add some human beings instead of always using these cyborgs. If you have no idea what I am talking about then you probably should not read any movie reviews. I liked this movie it made me laugh and warmed my heart go and rent it.
