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.

Who is the Subway band in the film?
22 July 2004 | by seepsSee all my reviews

Just to let you know. The band that plays the superb music in the film is none other than the Saw Doctors. An Irish band who have a loyal following both in the UK and in America. For further information about the band, the music, and the people. I'm pleased to say they are still playing, and writing new music. It is also worth noting that one of their key songwriters is Padraig Stevens who appears for a few seconds in the film "The Matchmaker". Which is another Irish film about a senator who looks for his heritage in Ireland!

The Saw Doctors still hold the record for the biggest selling single in Ireland with "N17"
