Truly a great film and the best of the Barrytown Trilogy films. I saw it time and again in the theatres until it was finally released on tape. By the time it wore out, it was on DVD. Even after all this time, it is a fresh experience with every viewing.
If you like soul music and have a sense of humor you`ll love this movie! Its "Rapid" as they would say in dublin!
Excellent movie, fantastic music played with great passion, very funny
Excellent movie. Very realistic! In my opinion, the best musical I`ve seen. Have watched it more than 15 times and never tire of it!
very important for the general developmen of the rithm and blues and the rest of the musics.
I very much enjoyed the movie
Great fun, wonderful music.
It was a very important story to tell.
An interesting story with some great music.
Really enjoyed...Would love to get to Ireland again!
I found the scenes amusing, the plot weak, the acting strong, the egos of the characters very interesting. However, what possible excuse could be given for such a proliferation of such foul language in virtually every dialogue? Is that language so commonplace in real Ireland? I often thought I wanted to visit it, but my travels haven`t taken me there yet to see Great Grandfather`s homeland! 2stars
i liked it,
as real as it gets, you feel the music.
a different movie than the typical formula style of movies where you can predict the whole movie - worth it
wonderful,kept my interest, very well written
Excellent music and story line.
Great movie and soundtrack. Andrew Strong probably COULD sing anything. Predictable, yet gives viewers insight to Dublin life. Characters and their growth well-acted and depicted!
The movie and music was highly enjoyable. It lest yearning for a sequel....The Commitments ..10 Years After.
Enjoyed it very much!
Very fun movie
I would say it definately had some moments, however, overall average at best.And that is being a little generous.
A really good movie
I think we are due for some awesome comedy and The Commitments definitely givs us that
Kept me wanting more!
I loved the movie. The music was amazing and the actors were great.
the first time i saw this movie was in 1991.the next time was on t.v. 2004.13yrs later,this movie has still go it.it aint a sleeper
great movie,great music and above all very fanny.
I haven`t watch this movie yet, but from reading the infos. This movie is a true reality of what is life,career commitments is all about. I believe it is not what the music is about but it is about the character and the building of the character. It is not what one does but how one does it that matters. Before we achieve something, we all struggles, I believe this movie will give the message to people about struggles, determination, united and true friendships, that trying to face our struggles and working to achieve our dreams is a true accomplishment. Overall to describe this movie, it is a simple true meaning of life and dreams.
Great movie, we play in a band for fun so can relate to the musicians struggles, personality conflicts etc. Love the movie and the music!
I really enjoy this movie, everytime I feel down I can throw this in the DVD player and in no time at all I have a smile on my face.
Great. Very funny and great direction
As they would say in Dublin, Bleedin Deadly!
It was a very good movie, with excellent movie. We have the soundtrack.
Great music, extremely funny and true to human nature.
Very very funny and great music
I loved it
Loved the brazen attitude of the band members and the honesty of the depiction of their characters. Brit humour rocks. I`ve seen the Committments in concert in Ottawa, Canada and thuroughly enjoyed the show, it brought back hilarious moments of the movie. I think they should curse more on stage during their concerts and banter back and forth a bit, maybe a gaint screen with some movie scenes. The rock n` roll is super.
I thought it was a great movie! i was so "committed" I bought the soundtrack!
I thoroughly enjoyed this film, and lost myself in their energetic, fun music. This is one to keep & enjoy again & again.
I enjoyed the movie as well as the music. It was one movie I would love to see again.
I loved it. I thought the music was great!
Quite irish and I really loved it
Loved every minute of it every one of the 15 times that I have seen it!
A rollicking good laugh, love the CD.
fabulous movie, the true spirit of Ireland
I loved the pure joyfulness of the forming of the Commitments-the singing and songs were awesome-it was a bit nostalgic & lots of fun
I enjoyed the movie at the show and bought a copy of the VHS tape
