Poster for The Boat That Rocked!

Richard Curtis last gave us "Love, Actually" so anything he's doing right now excited me. How bout you?


  1. Hey, if Philip Seymour Hoffman's in it, you've got my attention. The rest of the cast is icing on the cake.

    I wonder what it's actually about, incidentally.

  2. IMDB's plot summary:
    "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
