Critic Reviews for Jig
The practice and performance sequences are compelling, but the history of the dance style, the intricacies of judging and the personalities of the hoofers are hardly addressed.
It's not the best movie you'll ever see, but as movies about Irish dance competitions go, well, it's pretty high on that list.
Uncovers the sweat and toil behind all the sparkly outfits and clickety-clack footwork.
Bourne shows little knowledge or curiosity about her subject and doesn't find its magic in this pedestrian documentary.
Bourne belabors the judges' final decision to such an excruciating length, it makes the whole movie feel a bit more cloddish than it should.
Audience Reviews for Jig
I think this is one truly amazing film, who could've thought of making a documentary on Irish dancing? I was engaged through out the whole film, the editing was amazing and the individual stories were great too. It's an inspiring film that makes you feel good inside and out.
This is the kind of documentary that I enjoy. It is a well done look into the world of competitive Irish dancing and gives you an education about an event that most people don't know exists.
Toddlers in Tiaras....with Talent! Typical edge of your seat documentary with amazing dancing by some very dedicated little boys and girls. And then there are the costumes.....and the wigs....and the bouncing parents.....
