| Rambling and strange...but enjoyable.
Before the TV series "Doc Martin" debuted in 2004, there were three movies that featured the Doc Martin character. However, oddly, when the character was converted to a TV series character, his back story was pretty much rewritten and his personality changed dramatically. So, you almost have to think of them as entirely different and totally separate- -same name but otherwise quite different.

"Doc Martin and the Legend of the Cloutie" is very different from the previous movie because the plot seems to meander quite a bit and seems a bit silly. Now I am not saying it's bad--but it really never really takes itself very seriously and has a far different mood from the previous film.

It begins with Doc going with a Realtor to see a farm that is for sale. The place is a dilapidated mess but inexplicably he offers to buy the place. Only moments later, a family shows up and they, too, want to buy the place. However, the wife is a totally disagreeable jerk and bribes the agent to sell her the place instead--even though Doc had already agreed to buy the place! In addition, the woman is so unpleasant that Doc feels he has to do something...even if it's very stupid (which it turns out to be).

Simultaneous to this plot are two others. One involves two of the locals who are in the smuggling business. However, a couple federal agents suspect something and are mucking about town trying to uncover the crime. Another is about a couple women who are practicing Wiccans and how all this fits together with Doc Martin's problems is, well, quite bizarre.

The bottom line is that you do NOT see this film because it makes a lot of sense, you watch it because you like the characters--and they are very likable and quirky. Enjoyable but more slight than the previous installment--especially the ending.
