Storyline

Three Scottish lads (Fitz, Seany and Nellie) wonder if they'll ever leave their small town like so many of their boastful peers. The death of prospecting Old Man Tam puts a chuck of gold before their needy hands, which could be the ticket out for at least some of them. Harry, the scheming local rich guy, hears of it through his associate, Frankie the Fence, and begins a long scheme to wheedle it from Seany. Meanwhile, Fitz' retribution on a man who mugged Nellie, puts him in Dutch with Big John, an elder gangster in an adjacent city who has decided to exact a price from Fitz: £1000 or else he starts breaking one finger per week (then his arm) till the debt is paid. All the while, Fitz also struggles to put his aging and mentally broken father in a rest home (one with a long waiting list that only cash can break through). Backed into a corner on all sides, facing the problems head-on seems their last resort and only way out. Written by statmanjeff

Goofs

Camera cuts after Nellie says "You're not wrong." Nellie's left hand was on his right forearm but now its supporting the left side of his face. Fitz's left hand held a cigarette while it supported his chin; now his left arm is on the bar, without a cigarette, and with his right arm tucked into it. See more »

Quotes

Nellie: He's a bit touchy, isn't he?
Fitz: That's because he thinks we're attacking his masculinity. Questioning his mechanical knowledge like that is like saying, "Seany, we know you got a small dick."
Nellie: But he HAS got a small dick.
Fitz: I know. His last bird told me that when I fucked her.

not bad............
9 May 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

though this is just a light entertaining movie, what it lack was the hard hitting black comedy that has made other movies like this; i.e. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, The Hard Word, Snatch, Lucky Numbers, much more enjoyable. though it could keep the charm it was aiming for, though with the back stabbing and betrayals need a more sharper edge to them. The laughs that were presented were funny, though not to the point where you would be out of breathe from the sheer bewilderment of the situation.

the performances were good, though the director made all the characters to sympathetic that there wasn't anyone you would love to hate.

but this is still charming even if it isn't as densely layered movie which it could have been.
