Movie Info

A fast-living, cynical London music executive (Danny Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he's pranked by his boss (Noel Clarke) into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy). He becomes the ultimate 'fish out of water' as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families (including Tuppence Middleton) who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he's drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he's forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.

It's a cheering success story highlighting the homely pleasures and eccentricities of English village life.

November 20, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

A jaded formula and hoary clichés slowly strangle the goodness out of this sweet and cuddly true-life tale of Cornish fishermen turned chart-topping pop stars.

March 15, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It's a tale that lends itself more naturally to an item on breakfast TV than an entire feature film.

March 14, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Fisherman's Friends is a formulaic but thoroughly amiable and upbeat British comedy with a flavour of Ealing Studios and The Full Monty about it.

March 13, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

This gentle, sweet-natured comedy has warmth and a certain X factor of likability, helped by big-hearted performances from a cast including Daniel Mays and Tuppence Middleton.

March 13, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Sweary but warm tale of singing fishermen is one to catch.
