Movie review : The Boat That Rocked

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐The Boat That Rocked Expected as a simple, unpretentious British comedy, The Boat That Rocked is ultimately much more than that. Both hilarious and touching, this film is a great success and gives more credibility to the film's director Richard Curtis. The Boat That Rocked, entitled Good Morning England in France and released in 2009, recounts the madness of the 1960s in music and highlights the democratization of rock?n?roll in Britain. Based on the true story of Radio Caroline, a pirate radio hounded by the British authorities, The Boat That Rocked is Richard Curtis?s third film as director, a scriptwriter acknowledged and already congratulated for his romantic comedy Love Actually released in 2003. ...read more.

The scenario is also very well written and you feel in a good mood after watching this rejoicing film. In conclusion, The Boat That Rocked is a UFO that never ceases to surprise from start to end and contains no dead time.
