I absolutely adore this awkward but lovely movie. I was hesitant to watch at first, but was drawn right in to poor James' plight. 'The Boat That Rocked' has one of the greatest soundtracks that I've ever listened to, and one of the only ones that I didn't skip any of the songs. Five stars, for me.

Finally got to see this movie and it was worth the wait! The story was GREAT and the music was ...FANTASTIC! Anyone who was around in the 60s will have a lot of fun!

Pirate Radio, the new rock-saturated comedy that proves life really is better when it's set to a '60s soundtrack, is, to borrow from the Stones, "a gas! gas! gas!" Full Review

Classic rock enthusiasts will want to stick around through the end credit sequence, which features an array of album covers. Full Review
Derek Elley
Picture generally stays afloat on the strength of its characters but sometimes threatens to sink under its overlong running time and vignettish structure. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The result, although uneven, is generally enjoyable, especially for those who attend with the right mindset. Character and narrative are secondary concerns for a movie primarily driven to provide a Valentine to '60s rock-and-roll. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Richard Curtis's comedy is anchored only in exuberance, but that's more than you can say for most movies these days; it keeps you beaming with pleasure. Full Review
