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

[Fitz finds there's an 18-month waiting list to get his dad into a nursing home]
Mr. Clouston: Well, people have been known to move quickly to the top of the list... with a little "cooperation."
Fitz: Oh, yeah? What kind of "cooperation."
Mr. Clouston: About a thousand pounds worth of "cooperation."
Fitz: Uh, yeah... Okay. If I agree to give you this "cooperation," when would you need it?
Mr. Clouston: Well, I'll be expecting to hear from you in the following week; and, if everything goes to plan, the next aneurysm, heart attack or stroke has your name...

This is Fitz, We went to school together.

What a great Movie. A story of a small town and three mates that live for each other. From an Australian point of view it's seen as solid mateship.

A movie about three Guys that get into trouble as we all have at some time or another without even trying and will they get out of it with a no luck at all. I loved this from start to finish, I am not sure if it was because I didn't know what to expect but I like the easy plot and cast of usual people in a small town where everybody knows everything.

I look forward to more movies like this rather than over budgeted epic's with big stars and CGI. Bring back the hometown hit. This deserves a look, 4 out of 5 Stars from me.
