Synopsis:
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 w value friendship and community over fame and A 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.

Uplifting and diverting - Fisherman's Friends review by jM

Spoiler Alert
28/08/2019

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.

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

Spoiler Alert
19/07/2019

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.

Dreadful stereotypes and predictable plot - Fisherman's Friends review by rh

Spoiler Alert
20/09/2019

This film was a disappointment from just about any way you look at it. Cod Cornish type accents and mannerisms make the village of Port Isaac fifty years behind the time. The pub doesn't have lager, because it is too modern, but they have all selection of oddly named beers on tap. The out of towers are stereotypes of young rich London yuppies. They just don't understand these ere Cornish folk.

The plot is awful and telegraphed. An unnecessary romance is shoehorned in.

No character development and terrible stilted speech make this a real failure.
