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

Beautiful locations, not much else
13 August 2014 | by (Oakland, New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I have no idea how I stumbled upon this one. It's a Lifetime movie-Independent hybrid. In fact, I think it was actually Hallmark that picked up the broadcast right for this straight-to-video movie. It's got an interesting cast -- Jane Seymour, Ben Savage (Boy Meets World,) Madeline Zima (The Nanny,) Richard Moll (Night Court,) Jeff Fahey and Scottie Thompson. The acting is mediocre from them all, mediocre story, nothing special there whatsoever. What makes it worth it is the fact it was filmed on Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia, the same location as What About Bob. Gorgeous. Absolutely beautiful! I'm not in any rush to ever see this again but I'd strongly consider it for the filming location alone.

5.6 / 10 stars
