Uplifting and diverting
- Fisherman's Friends review by jM
Despite some less than enthusiastic reviews in the media, this was a wonderful and charming little film, based on a true story. It may have been a bit formulaic and predictable, it was no less enjoyable for that. The music and the gentle humour was outstanding and the acting excellent.

No cliche unexplored
- Fisherman's Friends review by GP
Might have been based on an interesting story but this film is so full of cliches it was painful to watch.

Feel good fun!
- Fisherman's Friends review by RM
A very entertaining story of a bunch of ordinary Cornish shanty singers brought to life in a tongue in cheek telling of their discovery. This is one film where the locations can easily be visited, from Port Isaac village to St, James the Great Church St. Kew. There's even a cameo appearance by celebrity chef Nathan Outlaw who has a restaurant in the village. probably not one for the Oscars but super performances by the whole cast, you can even play "spot the original fishermen's friends" who appear in the film.
A well told if rather quaint story.

Ignore the mean spirited reviews
- Fisherman's Friends review by KF
This feel-good film was a delight to watch on a grey, wet, gloomy afternoon. Ok, it wasn't stunning, no manufactured drama and some of the dialogue was a bit hackneyed but it stayed true to itself in a refreshingly unpretentious manner and was all the better for being based on a true story. Not cinematically ambitious but very enjoyable.
