By: Trevor Chartrand Fisherman’s Friends is a charming little movie that celebrates the strength of a close community, shining its spotlight on a gang of quirky singing fisherman from Port Isaac, UK. Unlike the throat lozenge brand that shares this same title, this film goes down smooth and easy – and it won’t leave a bad taste in your mouth.
A racially-diverse group of children cause havoc until a teacher comes along and sets them straight. No, this isn’t about Stand and Deliver or Dangerous Minds. This is about Urban Hymn, yet another film which takes the familiar plotline and runs nowhere with it.
