Boat That Rocked UNCUT -more passion.

3 Oct

[From Vincent on The Boat That Rocked / Pirate Radio]

For my money, the two BEST bits cut from even the UK and all DVD releases (the US release suffered a further 25 minutes cut) were…

…the longer mix of Chris O’Dowd (“Simple Simon”) singing along with “Stay With Me (Baby)” – it had more passion – and…

…the adventures of “the thin one” (Rhys Ifans) – which Richard Curtis loved – but something had to go and Richard figured the shot where Gavin Canavagh rejoins the ship said it all.

The “pilgrimage” to Abbey Road isn’t bad either!

Of course, this film was NEVER going to make money. Most modern cinema-goers’ PARENTS weren’t alive when “pirate” radio ruled!
