Storyline

The story of the inhabitants of the isolated Scottish island of Todday, in the Outer Hebrides, where gloom sets in as their wartime rationing of whisky runs out. When cargo ship the SS Cabinet Minister runs aground the shrewd islanders run rings around the buffoonish English Home Guard commander Captain Waggett and conspire to hide away cases of the precious amber nectar.

Fantastic Fun Scottish Film
11 July 2017 | by wewmSee all my reviews

Fully enjoyed this film. Took the whole family out to see this at the cinema a couple of months ago and enjoyed by my kids and my mum who is 70 - can't remember the last time that happened! Very funny little story, well performed and took me back to my childhood of being on holiday at my grandparents up in Scotland and the many characters of their village. Definitely worth a watch if you like slightly 'harmless' comedies (in that the whole family can watch it), with a simple story that anyone can follow. Only thing I would say is that I haven't seen the original so can't measure that like others might, but either way a good watch.
