Cynical Doctor Jonathan Dempsey (Ted Danson) arrives in Scotland to explode the myth of the Loch Ness Monster once and for all - much to the chagrin of the local community, who rely on the tourist trade that the monster generates. Dempsey becomes involved with the landlady of the pub where he is staying, and his views are gradually altered by both the local townsfolk and something mysterious below Loch Ness.

Of course the Loch Ness Monster story is a good one to adapt to a movie and you are pulled along with curiosity throughout the film - so wanting, really, for a monster to be found and of course the viewer is not disappointed.
We brought the video, mainly to find out more about the location, but we were touched by the storyline and its characters. The only sad thing is that most of the Scottish characters who take part in the movie are initially cast in a rather stony image and my experiences of Scottish hospitality prove this to be an inaccurate portrayal of the nations people...
Overall, we loved this movie and recommend you watch it soon....But beware Nessy is out there somewhere!!!
And yet, this is another film that I keep re-watching- there is a delightful sense of tongue in cheek about this, the story is of the classic myth- the ancient sea creature alive in Loch Ness- and yet it has an innocent charm that you just wish could be true.
I like this sort of film. Think lots of us do, if we could just be more truthful. A 4 star film- not quite excellent, but very good al;l the same.
Like the Monster of the Loch this film is a wonderful secret. It's not Lawrence of Arabia but it is a gentle comedy which stirs the emotions. A wonderful cast, terrific use of location (Scotch Mist not sunny beaches), great script & a stirring finale. If you like Cheers & Local Hero then this is your film. If you have children aged between five and ten then this is ideal Rainy Sunday entertainment.
Similar to another lost classic, Fairytale, about the Yorkshire girls who photographed Fairies. That had Harvey Keitel and Peter O Toole and still went missing. I'm so pleased this is being released so I can show my seven year old daughter that Scotland is the land of monsters as well as Peter Pan (Finding Neverland) Treasure Island (Disney et al) as well as Harry Potter. I'll wait a few years before I tell her about Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde
Together with his enthusiastic assistant Adrian Foote (James Frain) he does not have much luck, and he is not really wanted by the locals who are quite happy with things as they are.
He meets Laura (Joely Richardson), the independent inn-keeper and her adorable and bright little daughter Isabel (Kirsty Graham) before being eventually being led by the little girl to find a lovable family of gentle loch ness dinosaurs.
He must then decide whether to destroy the harmony of the Loch Ness and it's creatures, and to get fame and fortune, or to leave them in peace, urged to do so by the water bailiff who knows that all will be destroyed if he publicises his photographs and findings. As Laura says "Some things are just meant to be left alone".
The undoubted star of the show is the lovely little Isabel, a really heart-stealing performance by little Scottish actress, Kirsty Graham, with her red hair and forget-me-not blue eyes..
The footage of the ness-dinosaurs was beautiful but a pity it was only 20 seconds.
And the views? I travelled to Loch Ness after seeing this movie - what an unbelievable place......
Fantastic family entertainment and you'll want to watch it over and over again.
Cannot praise it highly enough!
Once it was made available for viewing it struggled to gain any significant support, both by critics and film fans alike. Caught in the 1990's creature feature slipstream created by Jurassic Park, hopes were high for a very different type of Loch Ness Monster movie. Nobody, except for the film makers, were quite prepared for what type of film Loch Ness is. Henderson's film is a human interest story first and foremost, one that has the Loch Ness Monster as its backdrop. It is driven by a mismatched (developing) love story, yet still has enough about it to raise the pertinent question that crowns the story, namely why? And should we? Solve the Loch Ness Monster mystery. It's all very simple and low-key, where any expectation of an FX extravaganza will lead you only to a big disappointment. Helps, too, if you kind of want to believe in the fantastical, like a bit of whimsy with your film supper.
An insult often used to beat it with is that it copies Local Hero's template. What is wrong with that?Read more ›
