Aside from the strong language, this romantic comedy is really cute, and is one I come back to time and again. Marcy Tizard (Janeane Garofalo) is a cynical campaign worker for Senator John McGlory (Jay O. Sanders), an incumbent running for reelection in Boston. The Senator is a good man, but he has had problems sticking to certain issues in the past, and these little mini-scandals are coming to bite him during this election season. Since Boston has such a heavy Irish population, the senator’s slick campaign manager, Nick (Denis Leary) is looking to play up the Irish ethnic factor of the senator’s roots. They send Marcy to Ballinagra, supposedly the town in Ireland where the McGlorys came from in the 1930s. What Marcy does not know about about Ballinagra is that she has come to the town during the week of the annual Matchmaking Festival, and the town is in chaos from all the people coming in from all over the world trying to get the ultimate hook-up.
