ashley h The Irish in Us is an okay film. It is about two brothers who vie for the affections of a lovely young woman. James Cagney and Pat O'Brien give decent performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Lloyd Bacon did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the humor.
