In the United States, "The Commitments" stirred lots of press attention, performed respectably at the box office and spawned a hit soundtrack album, to which a sequel will be released shortly. All in all, not bad for an independent film. But "Commitments" producer Roger Randall-Cutler feels "it could have done better here," compared with its performance in Britain and Ireland.

Try as you might, there's no resisting "The Commitments." Yes, it's sporadically slick, surfacy and manipulative (it is directed by Alan Parker, after all), but those are just words, and words don't have a chance against the supple power of some of the most melodic, euphoric music ever written, a sound so potent it could probably liberate the world.
