The Boat That Rocked

Oh how I wanted to love this movie.  I am generally a fan of Richard Curtis’ work and I love the cast.  Why the hell is this movie more than two hours?  They partied a lot.  We get it.  People loved rock and roll – got that too.  Ugh…. such a waste.  I could watch Nighy and Hoffman in just about anything…. they were completely wasted in this film.

Poster for the movie "The Boat That Rocked"

Movie title: The Boat That Rocked

Movie description: The Boat That Rocked is an ensemble comedy, where the romance is between the young people of the 60s, and pop music. It's about a band of DJs that captivate Britain, playing the music that defines a generation and standing up to a government that wanted control of popular culture via the British Broadcasting Corporation. Loosely based on the events in Britain in the 60's when the Labour government of Harold Wilson, wanted to bring the pirate radio stations under control, enough to see the passage of the Marine Broadcasting Offences Act on 15 August 1967. Also known as "Pirate Radio".
