This is based on the first story of Roddy Doyle's 'Barrytown Trilogy'.

Dubliner Jimmy Rabbitte, is a man with a vision - to bring soul music to Dublin. His friends Derek and Outspan ask him to manage their band and Jimmy agrees, but only on his terms. He places an ad in the local paper which simply reads "have you got soul? If so, the World's Hardest Working Band is looking for you".

And so were born The Commitments... However all does not go smoothly, and soon their success on stage is overshadowed by their off-stage rivalry.

This is one of the best Irish feel-good movies of the early 1990's, it is guaranteed to have you laughing, cringing and singing along. Watch out for the bit parts and cameos by Andrea and Jim Corr and the man himself, Alan Parker. Strong soul music soundtrack.

 "We're Black and We're Proud"

Top 100 DVD Reviewer

Funny, witty and intelligent with superb music. Hard to believe that Andrew Strong's incredible voice comes out of a 17 year old white boy. The "we're black and we're proud" speech is amazing as is the bickering and most of all the music. Treat yourselves Soul lovers.

 I like the music!

I like the music in this entertaining feel-good movie. The allways stunning Andrea Corr (leadsinger 'The Corrs') has a cameo, and doesn't sing, pity.

Regarding the DVD: the Aspect Ratio is 1.85:1 instead of the stated 4:3, however the image is just above VHS level. Fortunately, the audio is great.

My rating IMDb # 7.5/10.
