Fisherman's Friends (12A)

Music, Drama, Comedy

British drama in which a group of fishermen with a talent for singing Sea Shanties are offered the chance to sign a record deal.

The critical consensus

What results is an undemanding yarn that'll still warm the cockles of your heart.

***(*)(*)James Mottram, The List, 11/03/2019

Inspired by a true story, this warm-hearted tale of a singing group from Cornwall is likable, if goofy.

***(*)(*)Mike McCahill, The Guardian, 13/03/2019

The film takes considerable liberties with the Fisherman's Friends story, but fans of extra mature Cornish cheddar won’t be complaining.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 13/03/2019

Bolting together a fish-out-of-water story and a victory-of-the-underdog yarn, Fisherman’s Friends delivers on neither front. Without a single surprise under its sou’wester, it takes a broad formulaic approach to a feel-good story and comes up short.
