The Boat That Rocked ... Rocked!

The Boat That Rocked PosterI've just this minute got back from London. I entered a competition on LOVEFiLM the other week and I couldn't believe it when I received an email on Friday saying that I'd won a pair of tickets to a special screening of the new (Should-Be-Sir) Richard Curtis movie The Boat That Rocked. The screening took place at BAFTA in Piccadilly and Chris and I went along to see it tonight. It was wonderful! There were drinks, posh nibbles on sticks, goody bags and then the film itself. I'm a massive Richard Curtis fan so I've been looking forward to seeing this movie for ages and it didn't disappoint. Brilliant cast, superb script and a fantastic soundtrack. I loved it!

But the fabulousness didn't end there. After the movie Bill Nighy, who plays Quentin in the movie, made an appearance for a question and answer session. He's so cool. Having seen him as Billy Mack in Love Actually about 1347 times it was strange but very amazing to see him in person.

Great evening - I have a big smile on my face!
