1h 58m

Jimmy Rabbitte, just a tick out of school, gets a brilliant idea: to put a soul band together in Barrytown, his slum home in north Dublin. First he needs musicians and singers: things slowly start to click when he finds three fine-voiced females virtually in his back yard, a lead singer (Deco) at a wedding, and, responding to his ad, an aging trumpet player, Joey "The Lips" Fagan.

A biopic about a band that's not real? Okay then. It's a lot of slurring, shouting and thick Irish accents screaming over each other in a fun ensemble piece about a burgeoning band that really has the goods, but get into their own way too much. The music in this is killer.

The film is a lot of fun, with infectious music, and talented performances from a mostly unknown cast of actors. What really makes the film hit home, however, is the feel of the film, the time and the people of Dublin, that brings a heady sense of reality into the mix. Not as fresh as it was back in the 90's, but still a decent film to watch when you're in the mood for a little soul.

Didn't like the first half. Is some guy ranting about soul supposed to give the movie a soul? Lower class people having fun on screen by getting drunk again, like that's the only way they can be portrayed as real and fun. Looks over grimey to be gritty. Punchlines ending in swear words and no laughs. Lad type sex ogling stuff at the girls corrrr dat arse etc. Completely mundane and slow. Second half is OK but all the outcomes are predictable

It has been 26 years since The Commitments was made and shown in cinemas. Director Alan Parker once again showed the no matter the topic his ability to produce a bench-mark film for a genre or story was strong in during the 1980s and 90s.

Casting real musicians from Dublin, who had next to no ac More
