An lightweight scammer from LA South Central winds up in a beleaguered Irish town that held a contest, and neither the young, black American nor the townspeople can believe their fate. Yet each is willing to give the other a chance, and this spirit of cooperation is kept alive by a lively and lovely Irish lass, played by Anna Friel. The premise is a stretch, a huge stretch, and despite a good cast and great performances, the unfolding story leaves you wishing the writer had tried harder to make it work. There are funny moments, and some good cross-cultural gags, but it isn't ever going to add up. It isn't that you couldn't have a story with these hugely dissimilar cultures mashed up into a hit, it's just that it would take better writing than this treatment got. Eddie Griffin has some real talent, but Friel's performance really shines.
Scenery was pretty. A fish out of water that got the town to love him. Very touching when the mute girl started talking and wanted him to stay.
The landscape was beautiful. The plot was different, but not believable. Eddie Griffin I have seen better
