  • Critic Reviews of "The Commitments"

    TIME Magazine

    August 20, 2008

    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.

    Chicago Reader

    March 10, 2008

    This is probably Alan Parker's best film, in part because it's one of his most modest.

    Time Out

    June 24, 2006

    Foul-mouthed, fast-talking and very funny, this is Parker's best to date.

    New York Times

    May 20, 2003

    Mr. Parker is capable of whipping a series of quick, well-edited snippets into a happy collage of musical high spirits.

    Rolling Stone

    May 12, 2001

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

    Common Sense Media

    September 06, 2016

    Joyous '90s musical-drama has lots of profanity.


    August 29, 2016

    Memorable, lingering in one's mind after it has ended. Perhaps, in the end, it's a tad wiser than it initially lets on.


    August 16, 2011

    It's a relaxed, colorful creation, remaining true to rascally human behaviors while respecting the unifying power of music. Downright irresistible.

    Combustible Celluloid

    June 06, 2008

    Does a remarkable job of balancing a feel of lower-class life with the sheer exuberance the music brings.

    TV Guide

    March 10, 2008

    This typically slick but largely enjoyable Alan Parker offering is the story of the rise and demise of a young Irish soul band.


    March 10, 2008

    Sharply written and executed with real verve, this is an enduring and enjoyable comedy-drama that showcases some great performances both on and off-stage.
