Fisherman’s Friends: One and All

By: Trevor Chartrand As far as unnecessary sequels are concerned, Fisherman’s Friends: One and All isn’t the worst thing ever made, but there’s not a whole lot of new material here, either.  Fans will find this second film feels comfortably familiar, but lacking in some of the nuance and charm of its 2020 predecessor.  But despite its shortcomings, this picture does deliver in the music department – with plenty of toe-tapping sea shanties to clap…


Fisherman’s Friends

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.


Urban Hymn

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.
