Andy and Ronnie are removal men. Andy owns the van and Ronnie lifts the heavy stuff. They have been doing this job for several years and nothing interesting has ever happened. That is, until the events of 'One Day Removals' start to unfold. Follow the adventures of two unremarkable Scottish men who are forced to deal with events of a quite extraordinary nature. Events that will take them into parts of Scotland seldom seen. Events of a very dark kind. It just takes one bad day to change everything, and no-one is safe. In a case that will rock the very foundations of the Scottish legal system, Andy Watt is telling the truth - but no living soul will ever believe him. Written by Michael Clark

User Reviews

A brilliantly funny dark comedy - this is a "Classic of the Future"
30 December 2008 | by lastofthegangtodieSee all my reviews

I only became aware of this film when I started reading reviews on the Aberdeen Footy Mad website (just a viewer with me being a southerner!) The dialogue is spoken in "Doric" - north eastern Scottish dialect, but this actually adds an extra dimension to this unique comedy. The two main characters are perfect - just normal everyday blokes trying to scratch a living - until THIS day - when the farcical catalogue of errors just gets worse and worse with every move they make, leading to the ultimate conclusion. It is most definitely one of those films... the more you watch it, the funnier it gets. The language content is very strong - it contains more bad language than Goodfellas!! - but it is in good humour rather than being offensive. The dialogue between the two main characters is perfect, especially the scene where they discuss "who off the telly would you like to hit"!! I bought the film on recommendation only... and now I would recommend it to anyone - good to see such a funny film once again coming from the ever-increasing independent gang
