The Boat That Rocked film poster

The trailer looked looked like it had the makings of a good film. The soundtrack sounded fantastic. Richard Curtis films can be good (Notting Hill, 4 Weddings, Bridget Jones 1) and bad (Love Actually, Bridget II). The cast seemed to be a fine choice of British actors.

Film is basically about life on board Radio Rock (Radio Caroline), in the 60’s.

The film did not live up to my expectations, and just about gets a 3/5. Having said that the soundtrack is great and there are a few good comic moments. The individual performances were excellent but as a whole the film just did not do it.
