A handful of filmmakers looking for the fabled sea serpent of Loch Ness get a look at another sort of monster in this witty mock documentary. Under commission from producer and screenwriter Zak Penn, notoriously eccentric German filmmaker Werner Herzog travels to Scotland to shoot his latest film, a documentary called "The Enigma of Loch Ness" which examines the myth of the Loch Ness monster and its role in the collective unconsciousness of the Scottish people rather than attempting to capture

[Penn's] oafish 'character' only manages a few guffaws and a handful of chuckles, and his movie is the same.
We realize with increasing dismay that Loch Ness is a movie about the bald, weaselly Penn and not about Herzog at all.
This is mandatory viewing for Herzog fans. It's an inside joke, but for those who get it, it's loose, funny and, in its own way, Herzogian.
Watching the movie is an entertaining exercise in forensic viewing, and the insidious thing is, even if it is a con, who is the conner and who is the connee?
While Herzog demonstrates here that he's a perfectly good sport, one can't help think that his time would be far better spent making more films rather than parodying himself in such inconsequential efforts as this.
Mildly comical for those familiar with (and fond of) adventurous German auteur Werner Herzog.
...Herzog and Penn don't challenge [the Loch Ness] myth. They are out to create their own. And they almost pull it off.
Herzog se revela um convincente astro do gênero "ação/terror" neste filme que, além das muitas risadas, ainda oferece uma reveladora visão dos bastidores de Hollywood.
We fall prey to a series of sleights-of-hand that keep us wondering what the joke is -- and more importantly, who's in on it.
A truly original work, and a very cheeky one at that filled with end-to-end laughter. It plays off Herzog's own legend as a behind-the-camera wild card.
While not quite on par with some other movies and mockumentaries about showbiz, Incident at Loch Ness is right up there with its head above water.
too much of a one-note concept to make the entertainment value lift much above lake level
In addition to being a funny movie about the movie business, it's a cheeky, ingenious motion picture puzzle.
The movie has made us question anew our faith in 'reality' entertainment -- and visual representation in general.
I hope this film is more widely viewed than I suspect it will be, because it is not only one of the funniest films of the year, but also asks questions about truth, half-truth and lies that are worth considering.
An inevitable cinematic showdown, now that war against the media and Hollywood has pretty much been declared by documentaries.
