December 10th – The Boat that Rocked

For the full Movie Advent Calendar click here.

I doubt I can ever get tired of praising The Boat that Rocked as one of the most underappreciated feelgood movies I have ever seen. Directed by Richard Curtis (Love Actually) this movie tells the story of a group of DJ’s sitting on a boat where they (semi)-illegally broadcast Rock ‘n Roll music.

Whenever I need a push to get me motivated this is my get-to movie. It is about a group of men (played by one fantastic actor after the other) enjoying life, music and celebrating. Amidst all this there is a very short segment of a Christmas celebration on the boat with all the DJ’s and of course “thick” Kevin and his easterbunny costume.

While the celebration itself is not pivotal to the story it is a very fun and heartfelt scene which is refreshing after all those scary moments we’ve had with this calendar.
