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.

Cute Movie
29 November 2010 | by maddentlSee all my reviews

This is a cute movie...it's not meant to be an Oscar-winning masterpiece, it is what it is...and it's cute.

The village may be depicted as a bit of an "European Cliché," but it makes the movie all the more charming.

If Irish people really are insulted by it...I honestly don't know why. Why would anyone be insulted as being portrayed as a hard-working, religious, honest people?

I am from the mountains of North Carolina, and often my people are portrayed as "hillbillies." Does that offend me? NO, because some of them are...and even if I don't consider myself a "hillbilly," I am PROUD of where I come from...and proud of my ancestry - ALL of it...the "hillbillies," the "rednecks," and the "educated, Southern don't-want-to-be-associated-with-North Carolina's-past" people...all of them...so, why aren't the Irish proud of this...even if it relies somewhat on cliché'??
