THE PLOT THUS FAR
When the world’s media descend on the remote Scottish island where a Hollywood actress is attempting to get married, a local girl is hired as a decoy bride to put the paparazzi off the scent.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
Lara Tyler is desperate to find a wedding location for just herself and soul-mate. After reading a novel which describes, in beautiful romantic prose, a remote Scottish island with a castle standing proudly on a hillside, she sends her publicist, agent, and writer husband-to-be to stage her perfect wedding. The problems are this location was a writer’s fantasy and the paparazzi are already on their way there.
The audience is not lead to root for or against one of the characters, as is often the case is such films; the characters all have their good points and bad points, and no one stands out as being eminently detestable. Not only are the major characters likable and well acted, but the location is very impressive. The fictional island of Hegg is every bit as likable and attractive as the characters in the story. The inhabitants speak with a melodic accent which still is understandable, and have an attitude which speaks well for their day to day life. And their ability to profit from other people’s foibles.
The Blu-Ray comes with interviews, deleted scenes and featurettes. The A/V Quality is pretty sharp with a DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track. The 1080p transfer really pops, even though they shot on way too dull of film stock. But, it’s a romantic comedy, we’re not expecting Transformers. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
