Critic Reviews for Fisherman's Friends

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (1)

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.

Slowly, however, the film gains its sea legs, helped by very nice performances from the three actors most naturally suited to their roles.

Chris Foggin's movie has a storyline faintly similar to that of Local Hero in 1983. So why couldn't it have taken cues from that film's wit and romanticism?

It struggles as a film because you can see every twist coming a mile off, each character is two-dimensional at best and not enough is made of the fabulous seaside location.

Too by-numbers to entirely succeed despite its winning performances (particularly Purefoy), sense of history and singing (which never sounds better then when they're in the acoustically perfect village church or in their fishing boat, heading out to sea).

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.
