Audience Reviews for Loch Ness

Loch Ness is a forgettable, try-hard kid-friendly movie that wears padded gloves in its storyline. It never moves beyond average, and the acting is only so-so.

Pretty typical kid movie. Joely Fisher has a great Scottish accent and Ted Danson plays the same role he always does. I liked it because I had a Scottish hankering...

A mildly entertaining family movie. My kids were hesitant to watch it because it is "so old." No stand outs in the acting department, and I usually really enjoy Danson. The creature effects from Jim Hensen Studios are the highlights of the movie. The story is predictable and mostly uninvolving. Catch it on a very slow night and it just might come across as worthwhile.
