Pirate radio station – the movie! Of course this has to be a story that we should have seen on TV before, I mean it’s so every bit a sit com, isn’t it? And a great fun ride at that!
But this one is a movie. Hmmm. Not so much. More a little bob on the waves than anything exciting. Oh, there’s a few laughs and all the people are very engaging but the whole thing feels like it’s becalmed rather than rocking. Shame really but maybe there was too much emphasis on the real story and not on absurd events.
The script makes it all a bit dull although you could argue that there’s a comfortable night-in feel about this one.
Nah, a bit light on the laughs.
Watch if on TV?
Maybe but not a first choice.
Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Kinda snog but be disappointed with it. Me thinks this ship was sinking before it left the harbour.
