This movie was so romantic!
Oh, yes, this movie is definitely dark and some people will be utterly disturbed by the subject matter. But too bad. I thought this movie was a wonderful, sensitive representation of Lee, a mutilator, finding love for herself and others in a way she never thought possible. Lee's home life is weird and troubled, to say the least, and she is haunted by a knowledge that she is "closed off" and "unable to feel" the good things in life. So she cuts herself. This movie is a definite journey to how she overcomes her "self-mutilation". And a love story, to boot! James Spader was remarkable, and I don't know if I'm corny or too sensitive or what, but I thought this was one of the most romantic movies I have seen in a long time.

I Disagree w/ the Above Comment
This movie was not terrible! Obviously, if you're looking to watch something deep and profound, don't rent this movie. This is just a lighthearted, and yes, over-the-top spoof of sorts. I love it. I thought it was hilarious. Cameron Diaz and Applegate made a wonderful team, though I think they could have gotten someone then Selma Blair to play the third girl, Blair always has that sour-puss look on her face like she just sucked a lemon, but overall the result was funny. I laughed out loud throughout the entire film and have turned at least ten people on to it, and they thought it was funny and cute too. Not a brainy film by any means, but it wasn't trying to be.
The Commitments (1991)
Loved this Movie
I "had" to watch this film for a college course I am taking ("The History of Rock and Roll") and I have to say, I enjoyed it immensely. It was a movie I probably would have chosen to watch on my own. The scenes are realistic and the plot is interesting and funny: the band attempting to introduce soul music to Dublin. The characters are witty and endearing, especially Jimmy's dad who idolizes Elvis ("Elvis is GOD!") and the gritty, urban guys and girls of the band. Another aspect of the movie I loved was, of course, the soundtrack. Finally, I also found the cast exceptional, especially when my teacher mentioned that only Jimmy was an actual professional "actor", the rest of the cast was chosen randomly "off the streets." This is probably why the movie had a very authentic feel of the Dublin projects.
