Incident at Loch Ness
Posted by martinteller on August 26, 2005
A very clever idea (and a difficult one to explain) that unfortunately fails. First of all, none of these people are actors, and it shows. Doing a mockumentary like this requires a delicate balance of comedy and authenticity — no one involved is capable of pulling off either one. Second, it’s just not written well. Zak Penn is not good at writing comedy, and if you need further proof check out another movie he wrote, PCU… one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen.
Still, it was watchable (though extremely predictable) and I have to give points for effort. Rating: 6
