Not heavenly but a pretty nice little flick, lovely scenery from Scotland
2 August 2012 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Mark (Donal Logue, from Just Like Heaven, among other films) is a television director who has seen better days. This is all his own doing, since the bottle is his best friend and he bends the elbow frequently. However, he is not without talent when sober. Therefore, he is sent to Scotland to direct a fishing show that has some issues. Once he lands, Mark tries very hard to stay out of the pubs. The shows' production crew also gives him plenty of advice, as does the host of the show, beautiful Taya (Joely Collins). Unfortunately, as Taya is his ex-wife, Mark has no intentions of falling for her manipulations. Before long, Mark is drinking again. But, he shows up for work on time and boasts to the crew that if they will just follow his direction, the program will be a smash success! Can Mark make good on his rash promise and is there any future for romance where the director is concerned, too? This is a beautiful film, capturing the best of Scottish scenery and locales. Logue, too, charms as only a rogue can while the rest of the cast is quite nice as well. Viewers will enjoy the lively script and direction, also. If you are perpetually fishing for movies that are far from that "Hollywood Scene", this one is a big catch so reel it in soon.
