One of Rocky's Favorite Movies of All Time! You may never have heard of it, but we promise you'll love this wonderful comedy from 1983. (It also has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes).
Up-and-coming Houston oil executive "Mac" MacIntyre (Peter Riegert) gets more than he bargained for when a seemingly simple business trip to Scotland changes his outlook on life. Sent by his colorful boss (Burt Lancaster) to the small village of Ferness, Mac is looking to quickly buy out the townspeople so his company can build a new refinery. But after a taste of country life Mac begins to question whether he is on the right side of this transaction.
"Four Stars! Here is a small film to treasure, a loving, funny, understated portrait of a small Scottish town and its encounter with a giant oil company." - Roger Ebert
"Life-affirming and often laugh-out-loud funny, this is feel-good movie-making par excellence." - Empire
