Editorial Reviews

Ted Danson ("Cheers"), Joely Richardson (The Patriot) and Ian Holm (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring) star in this thrilling and magical adventure about a skeptical American scientist attempting to solve the mystery of the Loch Ness monster. Dr. John Dempsey(Danson) arrives in beautiful Scotland with a not-so-beautiful track record. After a failed attemptto find Bigfoot nearly ended his career, the doubtful zoologist must proveor disproveconclusively the existence of "Nessie." Though he ruffles the feathers of a few locals, he is able to persuade an innkeeper named Laura (Richardson) to let him stay in her hotel. And with the help of Laura's young daughter, John begins to open his eyesand his heartto what's around him, discovering something more wondrous and powerful than even the mystery of the Loch!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great family movie May 24, 2005
I thought this was a great family movie. While it won't hold the attention of the younger kids, older children will enjoy it. The acting is wonderful, especially the "young lass", what a great part for her. Too bad about the cynical review earlier, but that's what I expect from profession movie critics, they are out to pick apart the film itself, where I am looking for entertainment factor for myself and for my family. As for MY family, we thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bless the Beast and child April 18, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Although not Oscar material with the script, this film makes up for it with the acting by a little girl, her lonely mother, and their colorful and ambient patrons of their little hotel and pub in Scotland. The hotel is closed for the season, but Danson makes the mother an offer she can't refuse...they could really use the Yank's money. Danson plays a scientist that had lost his credibility but who is now 'volunteered' by his University and sent to Scotland to find proof that Nessie does exist. Of course Danson's character wants to disprove it-with an attitude problem. Even though he doesn't believe in Nessie, there are those locals that would scuttle his hi-tech research anyway. The little girl, liking Danson's character, trusting him, and seeing that he'd be good for her mother...she's a bit psychic..and trusting him, takes him to enjoy her secret place. An underground cavern and its inhabitants shocks him beyond his wildest imagination. Now Danson's character must choose between fame and glory, or leaving the Loch the way it was always meant to be...peaceful. The wrong choice and he loses the ones that he loves, and those who love him. It's a colorful piece with wonderful acting and equally wonderful music. It is a great family movie where the ending leaves you with a warm heart and a smile. For the price of one movie ticket, you can entertain the whole family...and maybe some friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loch Ness February 17, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is what I call a guilty pleasure film. It's not the best thing ever made, nor will it ever be noted as a "must see" film.

What appeals to me is the combination of many things found in the film. The locations (even though I am told it was not filmed at Loch Ness) are beautiful to look at. The music is nice and mellow and the story is put together in a fun fashion. All in all it is a great film to relax with.

Critics panned the film and many folks don't see what I see in it, but films are a very individual thing. It is a good family film and worth taking a look at.

I first saw the movie "Loch Ness" when it was on TV and I have to say that it looks so much better on DVD especially without the commercial interruptions in between scenes and the picture is much clearer than when I first saw it on TV in 1996. The film stars Ted Danson as a down on his luck cryptozoologist who despite several failed attempts to find other mysterious legends in the world and in the mist of a bad marriage with a lawsuit thrown in, he is finally given the one in a million chance to redeem himself professionally by going to Loch Ness at the request of his employer to prove that the legendary monster that haunts the Loch is a ridiculous hoax. After arriving there he discovers that there's more to his plum assignment that first meets the eye, literally. Throughout his quest to find the mysterious monster that the world has come to know as "Nessie" Danson's character John Dempsey comes across wacky and sometimes completely irate locals who appose his study of the lake and his bad bedside manner. However, along the way there is no shortage of adventure for Dr. Dempsey in the form of unexpected clashes with other boats on the loch and the rather violent sinking of his research vessel by a territorial Nessie who miraculously saves him from a near drowning in one harrowing scene in the movie. But there are a few friendly and charming characters in the film to help keep Dempsey from going off the deep end in his pursuit for answers. One of the most memorable was the little girl Isabell and her mother played by Joey Richardson who help open John's eyes and his heart in very unique ways to the mysteries of their home and the haunting lake that serves as the family's backyard.

5.0 out of 5 stars A PRECIOUS GEM December 3, 2012
We live in a society where far too often and too easily and too rapidly trash floats to the surface of our cultural ocean - and the truly special remains too oft submerged. And because deep sea-diving requires a bravery the majority do not possess, the floating trash is too easily embraced and mistaken for treasure.

LOCH NESS is a small, smallishly known film that was originally intended for the big screen but was for some reason dumped on the small screen - hence, the deplorable fact that the DVD on hand stateside is NOT widescreen, but pan-and-scan. least this gem is, indeed, available.

Why do I say it is a gem? Because everything is precious in this film from 1996: script, setting, acting, directing, special effects, music, editing, photography. Ted Danson is flawless as the disillusioned and downtrodden scientist who is sent to Scotland to fade into oblivion - but instead discovers more than he could have ever dreamed for. Joely Richardson (daughter of Vanessa Redgrave and sister to the late Natasha) is radiantly beautiful as the alluring owner of the magical Moffat Arms where Ted Danson winds up staying as he searches the fabled Loch. The little nine year old girl who plays the innkeeper's daughter - and who apparently never made another film! - is absolutely adorable and perfect in her performance. The omnipresent Ian Holm as the Keeper of the Loch turns in a splendid and powerful performance, as he usually does. Harris Yulan is on hand offering his smarmy best. The list goes on. Everyone is pitch perfect and vibrantly real in this fantastic offering.

The music by Trevor Jones is what music in a movie should be.
