Trivia

The film was shot in Glasgow in 1997. Numerous local stories have materialized since then, particularly that, at one point during production, Charlie Sheen demanded to visit Easterhouse, one of Glasgow's toughest areas at the time, to obtain drugs, and asked for a gun in order to protect himself.

Very embarrassed by this film!
4 May 2001 | by SuxidollSee all my reviews

I sat and watched this film a few nights ago with my family; every time the female police officer spoke, we couldn't stop laughing - her accent was terrible! This film made us really embarrassed to BE Scottish, the fact that we were represented like this; I think we're capable of solving murder mysteries without the help of Charlie Sheen (and his very poor performance). The dialogue is doctored for an American audience and it ruins any effect for the audience. To quote my dad - "Its just as bad as 'Plan 9 from Outer Space', except its not even funny".
