Critic Reviews for Whisky Galore

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (14)

  • Clunky and affected, with too little drama to carry the narrative.

    May 19, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    May 11, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Instead of glorifying the amber liquid, Whisky Galore! is a love letter to an isolated community trapped in amber.

    May 11, 2017 | Full Review…
  • There's not much reason to watch this "Whisky Galore!" so long as the 1949 version still exists.

    May 11, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Its setting on the imaginary isle of Todday off the west coast of Scotland lends itself to gorgeous colour photography and the gentle, subversive wit of the 1949 version has been left intact.
