Famous actress Lara Tyler can't get married to author James Arber without intrusive paparazzi crashing the ceremony. Because of James's best-seller, Lara's agent, Steve, checks out the little known Hegg Island in Scotland as the site for their next attempted wedding. Unfortunately, James is a hack, and his book (supposedly based on Hegg) relays little of it accurately. Katie, an island native and the only unmarried woman on it, has been unlucky in love. She's working on writing her own guide to Hegg Island when Steve and crew arrive, eventually hiring her as a reluctant decoy bride to distract the paparazzi. In a mix-up, she and James end up married to each other while Lara, having spotted the press, goes into hiding. Katie and James now have to get an island divorce while avoiding the press while other parties seek out Lara (who has disguised herself as one of the elderly islanders).Written by

They say "Write about what you know;" so, obviously, I set it against the backdrop of the Spanish Civil War.

The initial credits appear over a scene of Lara attending Marco's photographic exhibition and purchasing a print of a Scottish hedgehog. The scene ends with a paparazzo taking a picture of them, which then appears on a magazine cover. The credits then revert to the usual scrolling list. See more »

It's a cute film...
However, something was missing.
And I just love romantic comedies!
I might be wrong, but I think what was lacking was genuine emotion, and chemistry between the couples who were supposed to end up together - it is clear from the start who will end up with whom, but I just couldn't really feel it between them. It felt a bit fake and forced upon them.
Overall, it is a cute little film, relaxing and in the end, it makes you feel good.
I definitely encourage you to give it a chance, it is a good pastime for a lazy evening. :)
