A comedic romp about the dalliance between young Brits of the 60s and the pop music ruling the charts at the time. An anti-establishment band of rogue DJs captivate the country by playing the music that defined a generation.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Dumb "boys will be boys" British comedy that wouldn't be so offensive if it wasn't TWO FUCKING HOURS worth of sappy, feel good consumer friendly nostalgic bullshit and ugly fat white boy sex. I really wanted them all to drown.
This is not a film full of plot twists and turns, evolving story or anything like that. You're basically hanging out and having a good time with the awesome characters in the 60's. Exactly what I wanted!
teenagers' dream. the funny thing is, at the most dramatic moment, Elgar's Nimrod used in the movie (and the other one has A Whiter Shade of Pale -inspired by Bach). it could be better with "chicken race" and "titanic" sequences but in this case it's just little, saucy popcorn movie. great finale for poor movie. different parts. rocky freeze frame ending. Rhys Ifans played Tom Petty.
now,i haven't actually love Richard Curtis work.i haven't seen four weddings and a funeral yet,and,while i thought Love Actually is a fantastic movie,i need more proof.Then comes The Boat That Rocked,the answer.it is seems to me that Curtis work is always full of spirit.after showing the spirit of love in Love Actually,now in this movie,he shows a full of spirit movie about rock n roll!great!
Funny, witty, and sincere. While I'm slightly biased cause I love the decade, the music, and the attire, "Pirate Radio" exceeded my expectations. I probably, however, rated it higher than I should have. No matter, this is a free country, and the film was awesome.
It's a feelgood film. Sit back, relax and enjoy. The decors and music are fantastic and the characters stay characters but I didn't mind. So now, go and prepare for two hours watching hollywood sixties. Makes you want to make radio!
