“Same rules apply”
A depravity of verbal filth with some violence and a shed load of sexual images. I loved it!
It’s like someone has tried to put everything in a movie that would get a TV programme banned and it’s so well done! James is incredibly charismatic in a horrible way and I was so involved I didn’t notice time passing which in my book is a sign of a good film. Not to say the rest of the cast are any less amazing as they’re all wonderful characters and deliver the superb script with every ounce of subtlety and it all meshes together superbly.
Maybe you have to be Scottish to get some of it, maybe not, but the result is a horrible and wonderful experience all at the same time. This isn’t gruesome like a horror movie and it’s not so much a car-crash more of a house falling down in slow motion. But with swearing and massively graphic language.
Not for families and small kids or people with low thresholds for, well, anything, but brilliant for film buffs. To be honest, I found it quite funny in most places but my wife found it very sad (and she’s read the book!) so there you go – covers all bases!

Snog in the …. better not say.
