Fisherman's Friends 2: One and All [DVD]
About this deal
Okay, so it’s not going to be the done thing to take up time on a busy weekend to shoot one scene from a film at the REAL Glastonbury, as that could take up the entire afternoon, but it still adds to the feel of this whole production that it’s rather half-assed.
According to Latitude 50, there is a service by that name, but given that it’s for getting about the village, it sounds more like a road-based one rather than sea. I get this, as I would still frequently talk to my Dad after he died in 2015, and even today, there are still times when I’ll think about something, and imagine how he would react. Also, there’s a very brief close-up on a boat labelled the Port Isaac Shuttle Service, the initials in capitals to highlight “PISS”.Now, I haven’t seen 2019’s Fisherman’s Friends, but I got the impression from the trailer that it’s hardly ‘ The Usual Suspects‘ in terms of plotting, and most modern comedy sequels tend to be a carbon copy of the first one, so I didn’t want to watch the same film twice in quick succession. Jim and Aubrey get on like two peas in completely different pods, so you can imagine how things will go from there.
As a couple of asides, the screening I saw had subtitles, which actually helped, because – and I don’t know if this is always the case or just on the screening I saw – the dialogue was rather muffled at times. By the time nature has eventually taken its course, everyone else has since joined the meeting, and have heard his eventual success loud and clear. Jenna Coleman (78) Jennifer Lawrence (45) Jess Glynne (47) Justin Bieber (61) los santos (47) Michael Fassbender (46) Murray Gold (45) Oscar Isaac (45) Peter Capaldi (102) Reece Shearsmith (55) rockstar (46) Sam Smith (72) Samuel L.They’re about to put out a second album, which Universal Music’s Leah Jordan ( Jade Anouka) is trying to help promote, while boss Jez Chandra ( Ramon Tikaram) is indifferent about them, during which Jim’s depression-led drinking doesn’t help matters and might just derail the whole project. Additionally, for any jokes, you can see them coming a mile off, such as when Leadville Trebilcock ( Dave Johns) dials in to a record company conference from his home phone, learns he’s first to join, then puts the handset to the side while he struggles to pay a visit to the lavatory, given his age.
Following the death of Jago ( David Hayman), the sea-shanty band are looking for a new member to join them – enter Morgan Jenkins ( Richard Harrington), and Jim ( James Purefoy– Momentum) isn’t finding any of this easy to deal with, frequently talking to his Dad, leading to Hayman appearing onscreen at the appropriate times.There was a lot of laughter in the audience, but I like jokes to surprise me, and there’s not too much of that. Overall, Fisherman’s Friends 2: One and All is too long, and with at least one or two unnecessary subplots that could easily be trimmed out – for example, one being where Jim’s mum has had an accident and is in need of assistance, and he now thinks that since his Dad has passed away, his Mum might also.
