"in america"...

A movie about an Irish family that moves in America...

Theres this scene: After they watch E.T, they go to a festival thing... anyway, the small girl see's an E.T doll but you need to play the game to win it.

The game is this: you pay $1 and if you can throw 7 balls inside a hole in a row, you get your money back and you get to choose a doll. if you lose, you can give up or double the money...

So the girl's father thinks its easy-peasy and tries it. As you guessed, he keeps doubling up, and everyone gets really frustrated. A crowd gathers and it starts to get serious... The father asks his wife to get their rent money (which is all they got)... As the father keeps losing, the crowd draws away until he doubles even more!

And with the last of their money, which they could stand to lose, the last ball... goes in! They get the money back and also the doll -imagine that! Talk about bragging rights.
