Three twisted tales from the seamy side of Scotland and the mind of Irvine Welsh. The Granton Star Cause: All in one 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, which makes him switch bodies with a newborn baby.Written by

I love this film. I think it is really funny, truthful and entertaining, I own this DVD and often sit down to watch it at home. As someone who was born,lives, works and socializes in the areas of this movie i found it hilliours and so accurate!
The characters in this film do actually exist in Edinburgh, I see them daily. You do get guys like Boab walking around feeling sorry for them self. And there is plenty Coco Bryce's bouncing around as well as the odd Larry looking for trouble.
I don't see why people slate this film for not being the 'trainspotting2' the wanted?! WHERE DOES IT SAY THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE TRAINSPOTTInG2?
To be honest I prefer the acid house to train spotting anyway because i feel it is a better likeness to the sort of people named 'lower class' who make up a large part of our population in Edinburgh. which both films try to explain and i think acid house does a better job!
Everyone here who commented from outside Scotland say they are offended by it, its not just a sick twisted movie. This is an actual account of many peoples experiences and lifes.......think about that next time u slate it.
Because I know you wouldn't say that to them personally.
Well done a great movie!!!
