Storyline

Sara and Lily grew up at Smith Mountain Lake. Sara became estranged from the family and without explanation moved to Los Angeles to study law. Her sister Lily, an artist, teaches locally and lives with their parents, Ray and Vivian, until Dad dies in an accident. Sara returns to help settle his estate, and all our ladies cross paths with an eclectic group of local oddballs, as they search for a Loch Ness-style monster they believe lurks in the lake's depths. A few real Smith Mountain Lake characters make appearances. The next week at the lake is filled with adventure, tears, and laughter as Vivian and her two daughters finally understand, through the guidance of Dad's spirit, if they still belong on the lake, even though Ray is gone. All paths converge at the Smith Mountain Lake Wine Festival, on course for a heart-warming and hilarious collision. Written by Mike McKay

Best film I've seen in years!
19 October 2011 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie has it all romance, drama, comedy and a great story. You shed tears to turn around 2 seconds later and crack up laughing. The writer of this film was nothing but sure genius and I am sad he passed away. Once again we lose a great talent before his masterpiece in Lake Effects can woo the world. This is a must see movie for men and women. A chick flick that even a man can enjoy! This film houses Smith Mountain Lake at it's best. The same lake that was in What About Bob is now brought to camera with it's real name! Enjoy all of the beautiful scenic shots. Kick back and just feel like your sitting at home. This movie is a roller coaster of emotions that will leave you applauding with a smile.
