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.

Good fun
25 April 2017 | by cooperbrosSee all my reviews

Sit back and relax, don't bother trying to compare to the first film whether it is better or worse, I don't care. I sat in full theater and the whole audience including me thoroughly enjoyed this film. We laughed at the funny bits, and enjoyed the story, what more do you need. Just go see it and have fun.
