Here’s something you don’t see every day: Phillip Seymour Hoffman in a light comedy, from Richard Curtis (Love, Actually and Four Weddings and a Funeral) no less. Something else you don’t see often: Nick Frost in a movie without Simon Pegg. Actually, given Pegg’s lackluster solo career (How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, Run Fatboy Run and The Good Night), maybe all the magic flows with Frost.

Anyway, The Boat that Rocked looks like you’d expect a Richard Curtis movie to look, which is not a strike against it. A light, broad, simpery comedy you can watch on cable pretty much once a week, and how wrong can you go with Bill Nighy, Rhys Darby (“Flight of the Conchords”) Rhys Ifans, Kenneth Branagh and his ex-wife, Emma Thompson, the latest Bond girl, Gemma Arterton, and January Jones, in her first post-“Mad Men” movie role?

Also, Nick Frost is The Love God.
