Enjoyable

Although the whole radio community stretching to outer space thing could be seen as quite unbelievable (who knows, maybe this goes on!), the characters in making waves were frustrated, yet ultimately honest guys striving to get their break - something that many of us can sympathise with. The slightly off wall backdrop certainly put this film in a separate category to the usual Brit-flick romance films.

I thought that the film flowed in a dream-like manner - by that I mean, once the story started it absorbed you to the very end, and definitely created a feel-good factor. I suppose that there are those who wouldn't like this story - namely pessimists, but for everyone else it's definitely worth it.
