After embarrassing themselves at the social event of the year in high society Philadelphia on New Year's Eve of 1942, Maddie and Ellis Hyde are cut off financially by Ellis's father, a former army Colonel who is already embarrassed by his son's inability to serve in WWII due to his being colorblind. To Maddie's horror, Ellis decides that the only way to regain his father's favor is to succeed in a venture his father attempted and very publicly failed at: he will hunt the famous Loch Ness monster. When he finds it, he will restore his father's name and return to his father's good graces (and pocketbook). Joined by their friend Hank, a wealthy socialite, the three make their way to Scotland in the midst of war. Each day the two men go off to hunt the monster, while another monster, Hitler, is devastating Europe. And Maddie, now alone in a foreign country, must begin to figure out who she is and what she wants.

Die märchenhafte Geschichte könnte noch märchenhafter sein, wenn denn der Kontrast in dunklen Szenen - und davon gibt es einige - nicht so viele Details verschlucken würde. Gelegentlich sieht man von einem Darsteller nurmehr den Kopf, während die dunklen Klamotten im Dunkel der Nacht ertrinken (00.04.40). Gelegentliches, meist auf helle Hintergründe, wie Himmel beschränkte Grieselschauer stören über die Gesamtlänge nicht nachhaltig. Schärfe und Kompression sind auf hohem Niveau und zeigen Gesichtskonturen auch in Bewegungen sehr detailtief. Kanten und Konturen bleiben saumlos und frei von Doppelkonturen. Die Farben leuchten wir frisch gemalt, was den Gesamteindruck nachhaltig verbessert. Alle Tonspuren klingen ein wenig höhenarm und schlucken etwas vom natürlichen Obertonbereich in der Stimmenwiedergabe. Dabei gibt sich die deutsche Synchronspur etwas dynamischer, drückender, als der Rest. Der Bassanteil ist profund und macht sich in der Musikwiedergabe am besten bemerkbar. Richtungseffekte und Umweltatmo sind permanent, aber mit Zurückhaltung enthalten und sorgen dafür, dass man sich sehr nah am Geschehen fühlt. Der Audiokommentar geht sehr ins Detail und beginnt schon mit Ihren Erlebnisen zum Foxlogo und ist freundlicherweise auch deutsch untertitelbar. Die weiteren Extras befassen sich ausdrücklich mit den Hintergründen der Produktion bezogen auf die Besonderheiten eines Zirkusfilmes
