Storyline

Two men beg and borrow money to start a neighborhood bar. Initially the bar thrives, then the crowds start to dwindle. The two then add music and hire a top notch chef, which boosts business again - for a time. Basically the film examines the travails of a small business owner and shows the up and down nature of such a business. The twosome not only suffer business depressions, but also personal problems as one loses his long time girl friend and the other loses his day job.

COOL BAND!
10 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

The "Subway Band" in the movie is none other than Ireland's famous band "The Saw Doctors". Nine of their songs are used in the movie. If you ever get a chance to see them live, do it. I was never really into Irish bands, but they have a perfect combination of traditional Irish music and punk/rock.
