Thats how I found out about it. Me and my friends thought up a drinking game. Take a shot every time it cuts to Glen.

I think the biggest surprise for me was Decko. I was expecting him to be the lovable fat guy, but he was just a prick the whole way through the movie. Right up till the end when he got his recording contract.

It's about a bunch of working class kids from the North side of Dublin, who decide to start a soul band. I'ts just about the perfect movie. It's really funny, and creative, with great characters, and awesome music. The lead singer is freaking incredible, the backup singers are really great too, especially Maria Doyle. She just knocks it out of the park. Really a genuinely funny film, think Grand Torino, just really humorous dialog situations. But it's not trying to be a comedy.
