An extremely rare bottle of wine (bottled during the appearance of the Great Comet of 1811) is discovered. Margaret Harwood is sent to retrieve it so it can be sold at auction. Oliver Plexico is assigned as her travel guide/bodyguard for the trip. However, other people desperately want the bottle and will stop at nothing to get it. A simple little trip becomes an international chase. Written by

Although many viewers take it for granted that the comet of the title is Halley's Comet, this is not specifically stated in the film. In fact, the comet of the title was the Great Comet of 1811 (formally designated C/1811 F1 by astronomers). Halley's Comet, which appears only every 75 to 76 years, appeared in 1758 and 1835; it did not appear in 1811. See more

[Sir Mason and Richard are discussing the winery's business dealings. Margaret has come in after cleaning up from the last tasting
Everything is cleaned up, Father.
Sir Mason Harwood
Thank you, Margaret.

Sir Mason Harwood
Yes? Is there something else, my dear?
Father, please, when will I be able to go on an outing?
Margaret, we've discussed this...
Father, wines are my life. I love it! And I am passed up time and time again while Richard gets every opportunity!
