Three twisted tales from the seamy side of Scotland and the mind of Irvine Welsh. The Granton Star Cause: in the same day a young Leith lad is dumped by his football team, his girlfriend and his parents, arrested and beaten up by the police and turned into a fly by God, whom he meets in a pub. The Soft Touch: a man is too soft to do anything when his wife moves in with the thug upstairs. The Acid House: while tripping on acid, Coco Bryce is struck by lightning, causing him to switch bodies with a newborn baby. Written by

The film was deemed deeply offensive by the UK tabloid press for its inclusion of a swearing, foul-mouthed God. See more »
So, what's been happening tonight, Brian?
Well, there's the rapist. The guy that stabbed the boy in the shopping centre. And this comedian down here.
Well, I've had a wee word with our rapist. Seems a nice enough young fellow. Tells us the whore was askin' for it. It's the way of the world, Brian. As for the guy that stabbed the boy - well, silly wee bugger, but... boys will be boys. What's the story with this tube-stake?
Caught him smashing up a telephone box.

Acid House written by Irvine Welsh(the best modern writer)is a brilliant "short stories" novel.The movie however is pretty disappointing.I expected it to be somewhat like Trainspotting,the classic Welsh adaptation and one of the best movies ever made.
The stories are not as good as they were written down.The acting makes it up a little and the Scottish dialogues are great. 5/10
