While I missed most of what was spoken due to the accent (couldn't find subtitles), I think I got the gist of the film reasonably well. There are moments of humour here and there, but the plot edges toward childishness in its course. So for me it is not a great watch.

A fine cast, some enticing opening scenes, and everything looked promising about this film. Unfortunately, though the CC button goes On/Off, I could not get them to work.
That's a make it or break it proposition, if you're hearing impaired. And if there's a lot of Scottish brogue happening, it puts watching right out of the question.
One of these days they'll all be too embarrassed to put out ANY movie without closed captions, especially where any arcane accents are used.

best work i have seen of Carlyle, good performance by Thompson, crazy tale that provokes laughter and sympathy. farce.

The film is over the top, frenetic, mad and very funny.
Some coarse language and heavy accents abound, but, what a delight.
We watched it twice.
Well worth your time, if you are in need of deep belly laughs.
