Great story, believable characters well acted, infused with good music. And laugh out loud funny to boot - there is something about the comic timing that is especially good in this film. I don't think you can ask for much in a movie, and I enjoyed it immensely. You won't get lush Irish landscapes, as the movie is shot in a gritty, urban setting (Dublin) that remains true to the original story, but that's partly what makes the movie so appealing. The extra features are worth a look, too, as there you will learn about how the actors were chosen from the local populace, many of whom had never acted before. All in all, a very well done film!

Before American Idol, there was "The Commitments". This film is "feckin'" funny!
