Goofs

During the last quarter of the championship basketball game, the camera shows the scoreboard ticking down to 50 seconds, when the camera pans back later, the scoreboard shows 30 seconds and counting. However, a few seconds later when the camera pans back again, the timer has jumped back up to 50 seconds. Later on, the scoreboard shows 23 seconds. About 10 seconds later it shows the scoreboard again at 30 seconds. See more »

All in all this movie is great for those who are uneasy about there heritage
24 September 2005 | by RKO_screwup_horsecrazed_See all my reviews

I really liked this movie as I am from an Irish background I know the jokes and comments that were put into this movie. The movie clearly outlines what a true Irish man is like. Ryan Merrimans acting was sensational and he knew how to do the accent which was quite surprising. The movie is very creative and a feel good movie for all. The plot for this movie was very good and the cast were perfectly fit. The movie also has a good morale to it. The movie was in genre funny,sad and dramatic all rolled in one it is a significant movie for all. I recommend watching this movie as it is an exciting movie to watch
