“Christmas In Scotland (2023) -u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis was a film that tried to show the difference between the cultures on the opposite sides of the pond, but ultimately it just made the Scottish people look stupid and backwards and it didnu0026#39;t do much for the Americans either.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI think itu0026#39;s rare that the U. S. companies making a Christmas film in the U. K. do them very well and this one was more proof of that theory. Itu0026#39;s like they donu0026#39;t know how to direct Brits and donu0026#39;t even think about utilising someone that knows what life is actually like over here or how we really behave. In some ways it feels as if the American style of filming rubs the wrong way against our British way.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe story had a lot of similarities to a number of mixed nationality seasonal films, but especially u0026#39;A Yorkshire Christmas/A Very British Christmasu0026#39; (2019), however the leading actor, Mark Killeen was at least hot in that one and the leading lady had an appeal and heart.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIn fact the acting in this film was generally terrible.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJill Winternitz seemed pretty ineffectual as the lead Emma and the Scottish Dominic Watters was not appealing in his role of Alex. His grumpy character made it a struggle to believe that he would ever mellow or change, even for love.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAlso, Emmau0026#39;s Dad, Mike (Toby Rolt) was incredibly extreme! I donu0026#39;t know anybody that talks like that, except when theyu0026#39;re taking the mickey out of William Shatner. And the first boyfriend Brad (Adam Bond) was more than a bit creepy. He must have paid a lot for the photos on his IMDB page, thatu0026#39;s all I can say.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAlso, my Sister is actually a Laird, because she bought a square foot of land in Scotland, so Iu0026#39;m not sure that being a Laird actually has as much power anymore, as it was shown here.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI did give up on this film in the end, because I just couldnu0026#39;t put myself through another one that was going to annoy me. I was riled up very early on and I donu0026#39;t need to do that to myself.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eUnscored as Unfinished.”
