Movie Info

In this film, young, headstrong Margaret Harwood (Penelope Ann Miller) is entrusted with a business assignment by her wine merchant father. While taking an inventory of the contents of the wine cellar of a Scottish estate, Margaret discovers an almost-priceless bottle of wine from the "year of the comet." When Margaret alerts her father to the find, he sends his crude assistant, Oliver Plexico (Timothy Daly) to fetch it. Although Oliver and Margaret initially have no great love for one another, they discover that they are forced to work together to keep the wine out of harm's way.

Audience Reviews for Year of the Comet

Cute but dated. I liked it a good bit more when it first came out. I just rewatched it and was tickled, but it would never do well today.

Adventure, Romance, & a Bottle of Wine so Rare, like this gem of a Film.Kind of reminds me of "Romancing the Stone"

Offbeat, but also slow moving in parts.
