  • The performances are uniformly terrific, finding the specific details that create a universal truth. show more

  • Could easily be filled with cliches but in the hands of filmmaker John Gray, it's a sparkling piece of entertainment that deserves a wide audience. show more

  • As you might have guessed from its title, Drinkers is as full of cheap sentimentality and predictable behavior as a Hell's Kitchen bar would have been in the 1970s. show more

    great depiction of life in the 70\'s.....very true to life for those of us who lived our lives with true \"white irish dirinkers\"!! Great portrayals by all actors and wonderful chemistry between Nick Thurston and Leslie Murphy!

    I saw this movie at the Toronto Film Festival and I thought it was GREAT!! It had everything, humor, drama, action, great acting and I loved the music! It was a sold out theater and the audience was laughing, cheering and at times, crying. I\'d like to see it again.

    I went and saw this movie when it premiered in LA, expecting to see abunch of white guys drinking and ended up walking out with a new movie on my top 5 list. It is one of those movies that delivers on every plain while keeping it real and not using those special effects. Watching the struggle of a man trying to become a better person and lift himself out of his current scituation really hit on all of your emotions... It has the drama, the romance, and has you laughing at all the same time. On top of this, the acting is absolutley amazing... the actors made this movie that much more of a success... I suggest everyone go see this movie.
