There's little to dislike about this second shot of "Whisky," with its appealing ensemble and hat-in-hand approach to the Ealing playbook; there's just equally little reason for it to exist.
Beyond simple nostalgia ... the appeal of this limp retread is difficult to discern.
Instead of glorifying the amber liquid, Whisky Galore! is a love letter to an isolated community trapped in amber.
There's not much reason to watch this "Whisky Galore!" so long as the 1949 version still exists.
This creakily old-fashioned remake of the 1949 Ealing comedy never finds its feet.
[Director] Gillies MacKinnon's remake of the Ealing classic commits sacrilege by the simple virtue of being dull.
A dry and surprisingly dull film, it is a comedy which doesn't induce a single laugh and a drama that doesn't engage emotionally or pull on the heartstrings at all.
[Director Gillies] MacKinnon doesn't update the story; he relishes its solid, old-fashioned quality.
Clunky and affected, with too little drama to carry the narrative.
Eddie Izzard is excellent as the pompous English Home Guard officer, as is Fenella Woolgar as his wife, who clearly sympathises with the locals.
A fine Scottish cast includes Gregor Fisher, John Sessions and Kevin Guthrie but even their best efforts cannot save this forgettable film.
Too restrained and polite to really grip the attention, this feels more like comfortable Sunday night TV than cinematic fare.
