Reasonably good movie, well worth a watch, for any fans of Bill Forsyth or the original Gregory's Girl movie.

A sequel to Gregory's Girl, of interest to any fans of Bill Forsyth and fans of the original movie. Only really John Gordon Sinclair as Gregory, and his sister Madeline, appear from the original movie though, but from what has been said about this movie, it seems that Bill Forsyth didn't really want to make a complete follow up to the original so this is probably why this is the case. In this movie, Gregory is now a very politically active English teacher at the same school where he was a pupil around 20 years earlier. Instead of being infatuated with one football mad girl as in the original, he now has to content with two women vying for his affections. One of the women, his teaching colleague, played by Maria Doyle Kennedy and the other woman, one of his pupils, played by Carly McKinnon. Throw in some political intrigue at a local factory owned by one of Gregory's former school friends played by Dougray Scott and you have the recipe for a good movie, not as good, as the original certainly, but a good movie on its own and certainly good for the fact that it was good to get a follow up to the original classic movie.
