Writer-turned-director Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Notting Hill) directs a cast comprising the cream of British acting talentwhich includes Bill Nighy (Notes On A Scandal, Love Actually), Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill, Once Upon A Time In The Midlands), Nick Frost (Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz) and Kenneth Branagh (Henry V, Celebrity), along with one lone American star in the shape of Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote, Doubt)--in this comedy set in Britain in 1966. With the BBC only allowing two hours of rock and roll to be played on its airwaves per week, a pirate radio station aboard a North Sea-cruising yacht broadcasts music to the pop-starved masses, turning its seafaring disc jockeys into overnight superstars.

Taking the infamous Radio Caroline as inspiration, The Boat That Rocked is an hilarious feel-good romp in the tradition of Curtis' best-loved work, and benefits from a knockout soundtrack featuring some of the most memorable tracks of the time.

The reviews for this film were so dire that I did't bother to go and see it even though
I loved the Pirate Radio Ships. Friends who did see it said I did'nt miss much.

Terrible terrible terrible terrible film.

Lousy film... also if you have a POP Vending machine somewhere nearby at your vue/cineworld/odeon, this movie is available at 2.99

Theres enough real life drama that could have made a whole series of cracking films about the pirates instead of this piece of fluff.
A wasted opportunity.

This movie was a waste of a talented cast, really awful film.
