Review

Our Score
There's more than a hint of Local Hero in this feel-good fantasy drama from director John Henderson. The script had been around for a decade before Ted Danson signed up as the scientist sent to the Highlands to disprove the existence of Nessie. Naturally, his investigation is sidetracked by romance and the self-interested schemes of the locals before he, too, becomes convinced by the legend. Although Danson is a touch bland, Joely Richardson turns in a doughty performance as the single mum whose daughter knows a thing or two about "water kelpies".

Summary

A cynical American scientist is sent to Scotland to prove the Loch Ness monster does not exist, to the outrage of the locals. However, an innkeeper's nine-year-old daughter makes him wonder if there may be some truth to the legend. Family drama, starring Ted Danson, Joely Richardson, Ian Holm, James Frain, Kirsty Graham and Harris Yulin.
