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 wanted classical music, and nothing else, on the airwaves. The Count (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a big, brash, American god of the airwaves; Quentin (Bill Nighy), 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 (Rhys Ifans), the greatest DJ in Britain who has just returned from his drug tour of America to reclaim his rightful position; Dave (Nick Frost), 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.
Plot: The Boat That Rocked is an ensemble comedy, where the romance is between the young people of the 60s, and pop music. It’s about a band of DJs that captivate Britain, playing the music that defines a generation and standing up to a government that wanted control of popular culture via the British Broadcasting Corporation. Loosely based on the events in Britain in the 60’s when the Labour government of Harold Wilson, wanted to bring the pirate radio stations under control, enough to see the passage of the Marine Broadcasting Offences Act on 15 August 1967. Also known as “Pirate Radio”.

Good, honest fun.
Richard Curtis’ first ‘non romantic comedy film’ is really another romantic comedy film- it’s just that the romantic bit gets swamped within 20 other sub-plots so you try and not notice.

The Boat That Rocked sees Carl ( Tom Surridge ) go aboard Radio Rock- a pirate radio station owned by Quentin ( Bill Nighy ) whose DJ’s (Phillip Semour Hoffman, Rhys Ifans, Nick Frost, Chris O’ Dowd, Rhys Darby, etc. ) broadcast 24-hour rock and roll music to the UK. They are adored by the populace but hated by the government, including the Minister of Communications ( Kenneth Branagh ) and his chief subordinate ( Jack Davenport ) who aim to shut them down.

If that was the extent of the plot then it would probably be a 100 mins film. However the Boat That Rocked has so many little sub-plots- many seeming like excuses to put in another montage or cameo cast appearance that the time has ballooned out to 154mins and it does tell at times. Furthermore, while Richard Curtis is entitled to look back on these days with an air of nostalgia, he sometimes seems to get a little too weepy eyed with the story.

But these faults are more than made up for in the performances; all of which are good- and some are outstanding. Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s Count is a lovable character who approaches everything with great gusto, while Chris O’ Dowd’s Simple Simon has a wonderful part in the middle section of the movie which brings a little bit of emotion to what is a pretty emotionally vacant movie. Nick Frost is cheeky as Dr Dave and finally Rhys Darby- fresh from Flight of the Conchords- simply shines in his role as the unpopular and daggy Angus who nonetheless gets arguably the best line in the whole movie.

Overall the Boat That Rocked is silly and entertaining fun. It does get overweight by a looong script, but the soundtrack and the cast are good enough to carry it through.

Lots of fun if all over the place
“The Boat that Rocked” or “Pirate Radio” is a 2009 film about a time in the U.K. where rock music was not allowed to be played on the BBC. This gave rise to a widely listened to pirate radio station that broadcast from a ship inhabited by some dedicated deejays and technicians.

The film stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kenneth Branagh, Bill Nighy, Tom Sturridge, Rhys Ifans, January Jones, Emma Thompson, Chris O’Dowd, Nick Frost, and Ralph Brown, and is directed with a fairly loose hand by Richard Curtis.

The result is a fun movie with a terrific ’60s soundtrack. The characters are wild: There’s Quentin (Nighy), the ship’s captain, an American called The Count (Hoffman), Gavin, the star DJ (Ifans), Felicity, the lesbian cook (Katherine Parkinson), Simon (O’Dowd), the dawn treading DJ, Bob, whom no one meets until he’s been on the ship for 7 months, Dr. Dave (Frost), and Carl (Sturridge), Quentin’s godson, who has been sent to live there after being expelled from school. They party hard and broadcast harder, and young Carl has his first experience with women and also makes it through a visit by his mother (Thompson). Meanwhile, on dry land, the policymakers (led by Branagh) are determined to make a law to close down pirate radio.

There are several subplots in the film, one including Mad Men’s January Jones as a bride, and Carl’s search for his father. The film is a little all over the place and disorganized, but that may have been intentional to portray the atmosphere of the ship and characters.

Baby boomers like myself should love it, as well as younger audiences. Because of the music and the audience on land listening to it, “Pirate Radio” has the unmistakable ambiance of youth.
