Storyline

When tragedy strikes in the highlands, there can be only one Scotsman for the job, Sir William Sedgewick, ak.a. Sir Billi. This is an adventure story about the power of a remote Scottish, but yet international community held together by the eccentric, skateboarding veterinarian and their race to save an illegal fugitive, Bessie Boo the beaver. Sir Billi and the village clash with the law in their fight to rescue Bessie. As they brave treacherous ravines and hazardous waters in the battle to save the illegal beaver, the question remains, who will get to her first? A roller coaster adventure, Sir Billi is undoubtedly the highland hero with a host of attractive traits. From the Bond-like characteristics, to a highland grandpa who still has a way with the ladies. His tartan dungarees are often seen navigating the narrow but dramatic highland roads, with a hint of showmanship and significant skill. A heart-warming and hilarious adventure that takes you to the magical west coast highland ... Written by Billi Productions Ltd

Quotes

Sir Billi: Testing, one, two, three. Ah, yes, you can hear me. I have a few words I'd like to say. People, today brought us many things - fear, sadness and, certainly, nervousness; troubled the old ticker at a point or two but most of all, it brought us all together. Ah, with my help, of course. But we could have seen the shadow of death, the trauma of loss and the heartache that would have followed. But as a team, as one united, we learned many things. We saw courage and leadership and we succeeded. Let ...

Move over James Bond
15 April 2019 | by EpicMovieManSee all my reviews

I'd like to preface this review by saying that Sean Connery is quite simply unparalleled in terms of acting prowess. From being a secret agent to being The Man in the Hat's dad, Sean Connery can do it all. Now, he's back. And this time, he brought his goat. This is where the movie's writing really takes hold. The buddy-cop dynamic set up by Sir Billi and Gordon the Goat may seem cliche at first, but it is anything but. On top of witty dialog (who WOULDN'T want to give papa a smooch am I right?) the film is jam-packed with plenty of visual puns. From the Union Jack being pushed off to the shadow, to plenty of James Bond references, and even 69 on Sir Billi's race car, the sheer cleverness of the film is the high-quality finish on a highly enjoyable movie. Now I've never seen the film, but I'm guessing that the Kill Bill jump-suit that the goat wears is probably a reference but I'm not sure because I never saw Kill Bill either but I think that it might be because Bill is the first part of Billi which is really funny because the goat pees on Sean Connery's floor! This movie belongs in the national film registry.
