The basic premise of the film is that a boy living on one of the Scottish Isles is separated from his girlfriend who goes to college in Glasgow, and he suspects she is cheating on him, so decides to confront her. He pulls his step brother along for the ride, and they meet a young temptress on route.
The film is sold partly as a road trip, but to be honest as the film is so short, there is not much of a journey. Other storylines are written in to justify the other characters accomanyment.. These are thinly painted. I can only assume we lost most of the story to an edit.
Some of the initial shots of the isles and the highlands are lovely. The plot was left at the wayside, but the film did give me the odd chuckle. I would have liked to have seen the threesome explored more, the whole movie could have been centred around that and fleshed out some. It just ended up flat and lifeless, save for a few good gags.
Certainly not terrible, but only vaguely amusing.
