The Commitments

4

Try to forget the decades of karaoke crimes that have been carried out in The Commitments' name, and concentrate instead on the dialogue (richer and filthier than a prime cut of Irvine Welsh) or the soundtrack (easily the finest soul score since The Blues Brothers). A simple tale of a dozen disaffected Dubliners who come together to form the palest soul band in Ireland, the film endures as the Full Monty it's okay to like. Thank director Alan Parker, whose phenomenal enthusiasm illuminates every frame.
