Great job Mrs Kennedy...nothing else to say, really
Verified purchase
The three stars are for Maria Doyle Kennedy...she is incredible no matter what kind of script she is handed. She is pretty much the only bright spot in this weak themed film. It would be difficult to summarize the plot as it is almost non-existent. The main character is a douche, plain and simple. I have no idea why "Bel" pined away for him...must be small pickings in that part of Scotland. If you are a Kennedy fan --- it's not a total waste...but save yourself some time - fast forward to her scenes ...you won't miss much anyway.

Tedious and preachy
Verified purchase
I was a huge fan of the original Gregory's Girl movie, loved its quirky innocence and its charm. This one is gross and awkward, one of those movies where you are constantly cringing at a character's loathsome behavior, even though you know he will be redeemed at the end. A joyless experience, disappointing all the down.

Another quirky Bill Forsythe film
Verified purchase
The word is that Bill Forsythe has given up making movies because of the difficulty
of straddling the line between making what you want & making what industry demographics dictate.
If that's the case, it's a shame. And this--his most recent--outlier movie barely got any distribution or attention.
In fact, it's a miracle it made it to DVD (since most of his other films are not available right now.)
The received opinion on Forsythe is that he produces charming fables that make you smile but not laugh. Light-weight.
His serious side is ignored, or out of synch with what nowadays is considered "serious." This is an edgy,
bold movie that continually keeps you off balance--a kind of sequence to his breakthrough, "Gregory's Girl,"
but more political than romantic, as Gregory moves from student to teacher/activist. The Scottish accents are tough at times,
a second viewing really helps. But Forsythe's originality emerges gradually, until by the end you feel like you've watched
something funny, serious & original. I think it's a shame we've reached a time where a small "foreign" film like this is virtually invisible, buried under the noise, computer graphics, jump-cutting & celebrity-heavy flicks that all begin to feel the same and are generated by formula & the assumption that no one will mind that there's nothing there because they're watching, in bits & pieces, on their cell phones while multi-tasking with friends.
If you respond with sustained attention to quirkyness, to high-wire originality, to films that stay with you for days afterwards, you might enjoy "Gregory's Two Girls."

Even prorgressives will think this is a stinker

Your politics may be allied with Snowden and Chomsky, this is still a godawful mess of a movie. Sure, go ahead, thinking it will get better, it won't.

Run Far Away if You Like "Gregory's Girl"
This movie is a shame. It plays host to Gordon Sinclair, and has appearances from a few of the original cast of 'Gregory's Girl', but pulls in the reins on charm, continuity, and the fond recollection of innocence that enchanted us in 'Gregory's Girl'. In fact, the premise of a 40+ teacher fantasizing over one of his students is a tad creepy. This movie is intentionally trying to market the 'Gregory's Girl' fan base, by suggesting it is a 'continuation'...or 'more of the same'...but it is indeed not.

Gordon Sinclair as an awkward teen discovering 'love' for the first time is sweet and amusing. Gordon Sinclair as a grown man obsessed with a girl young enough to be his daughter, (and well underage), all the while ignoring the attentions of a female peer, is sour and ...well, just sour.
The story, if one could call it that, involves an old friend of Gregory who has come to town with an illegal operation involving computers, and the torture derived from sound...and Gregory and young girl attempt to expose this travesty. Let's be clear about one thing... whatever is going on 'story wise' it is clearly a weak vehicle to carry the focus of the movie, which is Gregory, and his problems with the female sex. The ending is questionable.

As for the quality of the DVD, (not the movie), the movie is not as crisp, but it matters not a bit in this case.
'Gregory's Girl' is a wonderful little movie that I can appreciate the older I get.

"Gregory's Two Girls" is NOT even a shadow of 'Gregory's
Girl.' Run far from this film.
