The Cocksure Lads movie opens this weekend at The Magic Lantern Carlton. It’s a hilarious musical comedy based in Toronto directed by Great Big Sea’s Murray Foster. Cocksure Lads hits theatres tomorrow. Watch the trailer above!
I sat down with Murray Foster to talk about the film:
The Cocksure Lads, a band from England, come to Toronto on their first-ever North American tour. Ten minutes after arriving, they get into a fight over royalties and break up. The Lads scatter across the city, and spend the day drinking, fighting, meeting girls, falling in love, and searching for a claw-foot bathtub. Through it all they learn what it means to be a band – but can they patch things up before their big show that night?

Whistler Film Festival 2014 Interview: The Cocksure Lads Movie director Murray Foster – eFilmCritic
“‘This movie is the most fun you will have in a movie theatre this year. It is about four charming Brits in a band called the Cocksure Lads who come to Toronto, split up, then spend the day getting into misadventures. It is ALSO a musical, so it has about twenty-five 60s Britpop-inspired songs. At any given moment you will be either smiling, laughing, or humming.’”
