The film offers no message, no solutions, only a great time at the movies.
March 10, 2008
Director Alan Parker's story of a band of young Dubliners playing American '60s soul is fresh, well-executed and original.
March 10, 2008
This is probably Alan Parker's best film, in part because it's one of his most modest.
June 24, 2006
Foul-mouthed, fast-talking and very funny, this is Parker's best to date.
May 20, 2003
Mr. Parker is capable of whipping a series of quick, well-edited snippets into a happy collage of musical high spirits.

Parker keeps going for the glitz. He may have shot The Commitments in Ireland, but his soul never left Hollywood.

As music and human comedy, it works just fine.

The musical numbers, actually performed by the on-screen band, are sensational.

Alan Parker's sexy, hilarious, exuberantly energetic new film, The Commitments, has so much rhythmic juice that it's nearly impossible to stay in your seat.
