Reviews:
"[A] rip-roaring Richard Curtis comedy...wired to the spirit of rock defiance." - 09/17/2009 Rolling Stone


"[A] rock-saturated comedy that proves life really is better when it's set to a '60s soundtrack..." - 11/13/2009 Los Angeles Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "More retro than renegade, PIRATE RADIO is buoyed by spirited performances and infectious tunes." - 11/13/2009 USA Today


3 stars out of 5 -- "This blast of Sixties nostalgia, derived from the days when pirate radio ships broadcast off the coast of Britain with a motley crew of dee-jays, should appeal to ageing music freaks and fans of Brit-pop." - 11/10/2009 Box Office


"Richard Curtis is good at handling large casts, establishing all the characters and keeping them alive....The wall-to-wall '60s rock keeps things bright." - 11/13/2009 Chicago Sun-Times


"Stuffed with playful character actors and carpeted with wall-to-wall tunes, the film makes for easy viewing and easier listening..." - 11/13/2009 New York Times


"PIRATE RADIO opens with a zippy title sequence backed by the Kinks's 'All Day and All of the Night." - 11/12/2009 Movieline


"[R]aucous, raunchy and punch-drunk with love for the rebellious spirit of rawk..." - 11/13/2009 Washington Post


"Some comic bits work beautifully....[With] marvelous music, terrific performances and vivid sense of place at a special time..." - 11/13/2009 Wall Street Journal

"[The film] floats on a great soundtrack and is buoyed by an inviting cast..." - 12/10/2009 Entertainment Weekly
