Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This programmatic entry in the tykes-and-trophies genre has too much on its plate and not nearly enough on its mind.
Fresh: Uncovers the sweat and toil behind all the sparkly outfits and clickety-clack footwork.
Rotten: There are too many personal stories and themes (rivalry, triumph over adversity, the nobility of sportsmanlike determination...) slugging it out here.
Fresh: This highly involving film deftly captures the unique physical, emotional and financial aspects of diving into competitive Irish dance, with the participants' addictive immersion the overwhelming takeaway.
Awesomest movie ever!!! I could never do have the steps they do and I'm an Irish dancer!!!
im a irish dancer so this is awesome………..must buy
Best movie ever!!
I begged and begged my mom to take me to see jig. She finally did after a few months. I've never been to a majors let alone worlds. When I saw the movie I cried, I'm so proud to be an Irish dancer! It makes me sad to see so many people have given up on dance because others don't consider it a sport. For all of you who don't consider it a sport, we train as hard as olympic athletes. When we get it wrong, for those of you who have an Irish teacher, we get yelled it until we get it right. We have 4 to 5 classes a week 2 to 3 hours each. We are supposed to train 2 hours a day the days we don't have classes. You really want to go there saying it's not a sport?
