Storyline

Ritchie is a Glaswegian chancer with low hopes and no prospects. Disillusioned with city life, he goes undercover at a Highland conservation centre to make his fortune as an illegal pearl fisher with the help of his two hapless and accident prone mates, Danny and Fraser. Here he meets Beth, a pretty English conservationist passionate about saving endangered mussels from the clutches of pearl thieves in the Scottish Highlands. Falling for her instantly, Ritchie must beat off competition in the form of Highland Ranger Ethan, a smooth talking American Adonis convinced that Beth can't resist his charms forever. After the success of pearl fishing attracts the unwanted attentions of old school Glaswegian mobster Gavin and his work at the centre leads him to question his true motivations, Ritchie must risk life and limb to save the Highlands from ecological disaster and win Beth's heart.

Fun film not just for the ladees...
2 March 2019 | by omendataSee all my reviews

Cannot understand the 1/10 harsh review - 1 means its the worst film you have ever seen which this is not. Presumably its either because he/she was offended by the film being directed, written and acted by a woman who was married to Elon Musk and is giving it the "silver spoon" brush off or either offended at a Scottish movie with mostly English actors in it - who knows but the film is worth a watch with your partner as it is most definitely not just a womans movie as I quite enjoyed it and am a bit of an old romantic at heart myself.

Contrary to what that reviewer thinks I thought most of the acting was pretty good especially from Talulah Riley and Martin Compston. I thought they were great actually and perhaps I am biased because I am from Glasgow but i enjoyed the humour even though a lot of the actors were actually English.

C'mon its got Harry Enfield the legend in it and many other comedy magic actors including James Dreyfus from the Thin Blue Line; nice to see him back again and Spudgun from The Young Ones so presumably the high budget of 5 mill on this one is because it had such an interesting cast.

Its not going to win any oscars but it has some moments of comedy magic in that typical Glasgow way which only us Weegies can fully appreciate especially; the pearl shop seller with his pearl necklace gag - you knew it was coming but it was still hilarious!

Not a bad effort at all from Talulah Riley at all, its just a shame that people want to bash her because she is the ex of Elon Musk which is a shame as she certainly has acting talent that is for sure and for her first directorial debut it was not half bad!
