These movies are always a failure and an embarrassment - especially with regard to this as it's been factually documented so extensively. Royalty dividends on accompanying soundtrack might be useful to pay for hip replacements for some of the lesser known characters( if they get a look-in ) ... other than that, there's little point to this. The Germs and Runaways movies were painful enough.

Folk Hibernia is pretty ace, few years old now but definitely worth a watch for anyone interested in Irish folk/trad etc.

"On the surface, Good Vibrations might appear to be a rather traditional bio-pic, but its fascinating real life-story of Terri Hooley, the one-eyed Godfather of Punk in Northern Ireland, also offers a powerful snapshot of the terrible times of Belfast in the 1970s, and a vision of how music can make a difference."
