The Press Reviews

  • Wearisomely predictable and parochial in its outlook. Full Review

  • 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. Full Review

  • 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. Full Review

  • 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. Full Review
