[Penn's] oafish 'character' only manages a few guffaws and a handful of chuckles, and his movie is the same.

Pathetic self-parody.

by the time Herzog dons a wetsuit to jump into the loch, the laughs may still be with the star, but they're also aimed at the director

Reaches only monumental levels of dumbness and lame comical moments.

Then we go to Scotland, and the whole film is suddenly at sea.

We realize with increasing dismay that Loch Ness is a movie about the bald, weaselly Penn and not about Herzog at all.

too much of a one-note concept to make the entertainment value lift much above lake level

For all its clever antics, this movie leaves the audience out of the central joke for way too long.

JoBlo's Movie Emporium

If you're a fan of Herzog, you may want to check it out or if you appreciate filmmakers trying different things, this film is certainly unique, but at the end of the day, it really did nothing to engage or entertain me overall.

This exercise in Chinese-box filmmaking starts cleverly but becomes more preposterous as it goes along.

...while it's clever and at times genuinely amusing, this is still a one-joke film that wears out its welcome too quickly.

Blatantly comic characters undercut the credibility established by Mr. Herzog's naturalistic performance, and sink the horror premise as quickly as it surfaces.

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.

Penn seems caught up in some sort of blogger/TV-cable vanity trip.

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?

Like Michael Moore Hates America, the real purpose of Incident at Loch Ness is to point out how documentarians manipulate the truth and, like MMHA, Incident at Loch Ness is very entertaining.
