    Bloody brilliant!!

    Very well done, and notably different from the original, so not just a badly produced repeat of the first one. Funniest bit was when Renton and Sick Boy use an anti-Catholic song to distract the bigoted regulars at a stalwartly Protestant pub, after robbing them blind - and their stolen bank cards all had the same pin number of 1690!

    Awesome entertainment, all round, and highly recommended

    Some laugh out loud moments for me in this film but primarily a nostalgia trip.

    If you can live with that it's a good film and I think we all know a Begbie we can relate to.

    Spud's redemption was a good story line I thought.
    NEBO 8 - Sat 6th May 2017, St George Hotel, Durham Tees Valley Airport. 10am til late.

    Just a good, solid, well-written film, with all the right ingredients for those who like that sort of stuff, and with a great soundtrack, too! There's nothing really not to like

    When 'the beast is suitably awoken', I can worryingly be a bit too much like Begbie.....
