Movie Summary

Director:
Richard Curtis
Released:
2009
Rating:
R
From the creator of Love Actually and Notting Hill comes a trip back to the freewheeling, free-loving '60s when the very rock music that inspired a generation was censored by the government. When a group of rebellious deejays decides to defy the ban, they take to the seas to broadcast music and mayhem to millions of adoring fans. Featuring a soundtrack that includes The Who, The Kinks, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones and many more, it's a feel-great film based on a true story that critics cheer is "exuberant!" (John Powers, Vogue)

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    Stuffed with playful character actors and carpeted with wall-to-wall tunes, the film makes for easy viewing and easier listening.

    Los Angeles Times Betsy Sharkey

    Pirate Radio, the new rock-saturated comedy that proves life really is better when it's set to a '60s soundtrack, is, to borrow from the Stones, "a gas! gas! gas!"

    Variety Derek Elley

    Picture generally stays afloat on the strength of its characters but sometimes threatens to sink under its overlong running time and vignettish structure.
