The Commitments Movie

Recommended Posts

I have all the commitments music but have never seen the movie. Is it worth watching? I'm thinking of ordering it. But having a hard time making up my mind. :freak:

It's not a bad movie, especially the first time you see it. The second time I saw it, a couple of weeks ago, I thought it lays the Oirish thing on a bit thick, but maybe I was just in a bad mood when I saw it.

 

Definitely a fun film worth watching with very lovingly drawn characters and situations. Oh, and the soundtrack's not bad either! ;)

Do yourself a favor and read the book if you can find it. I found the movie to be quite nice and all that, but the book really develops the characters and storyline in a more realistic way.

I've been meaning to do this. I'll start seeing if my library has it.

 

Of course, it's got nothing on the book I'm still waiting for YOU to write.

Hm. Seriously, just read the Roddy Doyle book. Mine's a long time coming.

Roddy Doyle? He won a Booker prize. I didn't know he had written it. Explains why the movie is so good I expect.

 

I'll read the book then.
