Movie Info

Jacqueline, played by Jacqueline Ryan, is the daughter of a Belfast shipyard worker Mike McNeil, played by John Gregson. The worker's worth is compromised by his crippling fear of heights. Dismissed from his job, he finds solace in the bottle. All seems hopeless until Jacqueline breaks through Gregson's self-imposed gloom and helps him to regenerate. Jacqueline wouldn't be as effective as it is were it not for the lead actress's blessed avoidance of cloying cuteness. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Jacqueline

All Critics (1)

Hackneyed as to plot but warmly human in the telling, this is a genial Irish comedy about a little girl (Jacqueline Ryan) whose faith in her drunken daddy never wavers.
