A Review: Pirate Radio

It's a fun movie, because everything is what you think it is. Pirate Radio takes you back to the rebellious 1960s when rock and roll music ruled. Add to the mix a "groovy" sound track and a crew of raunchy fun loving disc jockeys and you have a great movie.
The action takes place on a ship offshore from Great Britain. The government apparently would not license any radio station that played Rock music. By broadcasting from the boat, the station was outside the government's power. The government minister who was deadset on doing everything in his power (and beyond) to shut down the station was played up hilariously.
Other than being a little long, watching Pirate Radio (which was originally title "The Boat That Rocked") made for an enjoyable evening.
