5 stars "Rocking!!!"

You don't have to remember the sixties to love this movie!! Whilst the soundtrack is one of the major highlights, the great comedic performances are what makes this film such a hit with the young and the old, it's a laugh from start to finish, no boring bits!!

4 stars "Great fun film, fab music. Great service thanks"

The film was a fun romp through some great sounds and an enjoyable emotional and funny rollercoaster. Inspired me to get the soundtrack on Cd and listen again to all those 60s tracks I love.

5 stars "Sadly underrated! "

This film is awesome and makes me wish I was alive in the '60s so bad! I could watch the funny characters and listen to the awesome rock and roll over and over. The critics must be watching a different movie to the one I'm seeing!

5 stars "If you listen to Hauraki, this is the movie for you"

The story in The Boat That Rocked, while fictional, draws a lot of parallels to the story of our own country's (then) pirate radio station, Radio Hauraki, which suffered a similar fate when its boat sank.

If you love classic rock, and the shenanigans young Brits got up to in those days, then you'll love The Boat That Rocked. I certainly did.

5 stars "Absolutely Brilliant"

The Boat that Rocked is about a pirate radio station called Radio Rock who broadcast from a ship in the North Sea to the UK. A number of DJ's live on board and are the only station that plays 24 hour rock and pop music at the time (1960's) That is all I'm saying about the backgroundas I would be spoiling for some after that point

The most notable cast emebers in NZ are Bill Nighy from Love Actually and Rhys Darby from Yes Man, Flight of the Conchords and his own DVD Imagine That. Add in some other notable faces and it is one of the funniest movies of this year by far. The chemistry between DJ's is great and any Comedy fan will enjoy this. There is also a serious side to the story and this plays out very well and mixes with the movie as a whole wonderfully

In my view this is so far the movie of the year – must have!

Description

They Rocked.
They Rolled.
Then They Sank.


"The Boat That Rocked" is an ensemble comedy in which the romance takes place between the young people of the '60s and pop music. It's about a band of rogue DJs that captivated Britain, playing the music that defined a generation and standing up to a government that, incomprehensibly, preferred jazz. The Count, a big, brash, American god of the airwaves; Quentin, the boss of Radio Rock -- a pirate radio station in the middle of the North Sea that's populated by an eclectic crew of rock and roll DJs; Gavin, the greatest DJ in Britain who has just returned from his drug tour of America to reclaim his rightful position; Dave, an ironic, intelligent and cruelly funny co-broadcaster; and a fearsome British government official out for blood against the drug takers and lawbreakers of a once-great nation.
