    The Boat That Rocked

    Post  Ezamber on Thu Feb 11, 2010 3:31 am

    The boat that rocked is about a radio station based on a boat. This radio station is called rock radio. This radio is pirate radio and the people on the boat live on the boat and all they do is produce the radio. The main characters in this film is called tom and quiten. There are many main characters in this film but tom is the main character. The film starts with everyone happy but then there is a set of people wanting to shut down the radio station. This fails but then the boat that the radio station is based on starts to sink. as the boat starts to sink they put a message out asking all listeners to come and save them. The boat is just about to go into the water and then you see hundreds of boats coming to save them then its a happy ending.

    I like this film because it's funny and very british.

    Good start - so go and look at the other questions on the blog post and find the information you need.

    A specific thing to think about with this film is how it compares to other Richard Curtis films - what does it have in common with them, and how is it distinctive and different.

Richard curtis was the director of this film. compared to other films he has created it is different. he normally makes romantic comedys but for the last two films he has made 2 comedy films.
