The Commitments (1991)

Jimmy Rabbitte, just a tick out of school, gets a brilliant idea: to put a soul band together in Barrytown, his slum home in north Dublin. First he needs musicians and singers: things slowly start to click when he finds three fine-voiced females virtually in his back yard, a lead singer (Deco) at a wedding, and, responding to his ad, an aging trumpet player, Joey \"The Lips\" Fagan.

The Commitments (1991) Movie Reviewson rottentomatoes

"The film offers no message, no solutions, only a great time at the movies."Richard Corliss
"Mr. Parker is capable of whipping a series of quick, well-edited snippets into a happy collage of musical high spirits."Janet Maslin
"Parker keeps going for the glitz. He may have shot The Commitments in Ireland, but his soul never left Hollywood."Peter Travers
"As music and human comedy, it works just fine."Roger Ebert
"The musical numbers, actually performed by the on-screen band, are sensational."Desson Thomson
