“I cannot understand why this dreadful TV Movie set deliberately in Scotland to showcase everything about Scotland was filmed in Ireland with mostly Irish actors with horrendous accents instead of Scottish actors and locale. In 2011 it makes absolutely no sense other than perhaps a very bad financial decision.nThe well-worn, contrived storyline of two familiesu0026#39; reservations being mixed up forcing them all to share a ridiculously small cabin in spite of getting off on the wrong foot, the lack of believable chemistry between the obnoxious father and the unsympathetic mother who fall for each other within a few days of meeting, the poor script and unrealistic depiction of a Highland Gathering of the Clans and Highland Games leaves the audience questioning why it was even attempted.nThe reason I have given it one star is because the familiesu0026#39; acting is actually good in spite of what they have to work with and it has its moments but mostly because, being Scottish, I liked the fact that both families enjoyed sampling u0026quot;haggisu0026quot; before finding out the ingredients.”
