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.

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

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.

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.
