Quotes

Maureen Duffy: [rushes to the docks and finds Jimmy about to leave] Jimmy McDevitt, will you stop being so bloody stupid? You're just gonna leave and that's it, you can't do that. You can't just mess with people's feelings like that.
[Jimmy turns to her]
Maureen Duffy: God, what an idiot I've been, standing here thinking that you actually cared!
Jimmy McDevitt: I do care!
Maureen Duffy: No, you don't!
Jimmy McDevitt: Yes, I do. You know, for a moment there, Maureen, I thought you and I had something...
Maureen Duffy: We do.
Jimmy McDevitt: You and Kathleen. But I was just fooling myself.

Jimmy da Jam
21 March 2006 | by jakenl_nowSee all my reviews

I think that Irish Jam is by far the funniest, romantic, and heart-touching movie that I've watched. I might be only seventeen years of age, but i have seen a whole lot of movies, and so far this is the only one that I could watch ten times straight. Jimmy was hilarious with all his wangsta ways, and Maureen is a beautiful lady. The part that got me was the ending, Kathleen and Maureen just took my heart to tears with their acts. By the way where can I get the Irish music that Maureen sang in the show? Who's the original artist? I would really like to get her music! So please send me the name of the Irish music singer.
