Reviews
Mine: Sweet, but not very interesting. Janeane is cute, but there is never much energy to the story. Could have been much better.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Cute comedy about a campaign worker for a less than exemplary U. S. Senator from Massachusetts, who's given the job of tracing his relatives to a small village in Ireland and setting up a photo opportunity to entice the state's Irish-American vote. Garofalo arrives in the remote village during its annual matchmaking festival and, despite everything, gets caught up in a relationship. Fanciful, rather than realistic, but entertaining throughout. Super 35.
