Okay....
19 December 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is a slight little film starring a cute cartoon Nessie and, naturally, it's set in Scotland...and an odd Scotland it is, with plaid-colored mountains and scenery. The cute little Nessie is enjoying its lake when along comes some jerk who takes it away and builds a golf course there instead. Brokenhearted, Nessie then goes in search of a new lake. And, in the end, it has a very schmaltzy solution to its problem.

The animation is nice enough but overall it's not exactly a memorable film. You may like the story as narrated by Billy Connelly but I wasn't captivated. Decent and mildly interesting and nothing more.
