Amusing romp through the mid 1980's
Tony Hughes | Cincinnati, Ohio United States | 01/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This takes me back: Tight jeans, the old St Andrews Bus Station, police driving light blue Mark I Ford escorts, Princes Street open to vehicles other than buses and taxis...

Ok so I'm describing the incidentals but that's what keeps me interested in this movie. Mullaney and Friell give stellar performances as two young lads looking for money and adventure. Terri Lally provides a good supporting role as the love interest and Big Country twang their guitars from Edinburgh to Inverness. Top fun!"
Brilliant!

"If told you how long I've been looking for this film...finding a VHS copy some years ago was such a coup for me - but finding the DVD - what a joy!
There are so mant hilarious & touching moments in this flick but it is SO much more than the sum of its parts.
It's funny - another reviewer mentioned Big Country (the band does the soundtrack of the film) and I, too heard the music before seeing the film.
I cannae (*grins*) find the words - it's a magical movie, it really is.
Try it, you'll love it!"
