While it's a movie not lacking in nationality, it sure doesn't have much personality. No, it doesn't capture the, och aye, spirit of the original.

What makes the film so pleasurable is the humour and lyricism with which it tells its rousing story of whisky-loving small timers coming together together to keep officialdom at bay.
