originally posted on 30 August 2009, Sunday

Released 17 April 2009 here in Sweden, The Boat That Rocked really rocks! Every tiny detail, every single person (no matter how small their roles are), every word spoken, every second counted are wonderfully stitched together to come up with this very entertaining masterpiece.

Plot summary for The Boat That Rocked (quoted from

"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."

If you are searching for a film to enjoy your popcorn nights with, go watch this one. Two thumbs up!
