As far as I'm concerned, it's a great film that should help the IRISH tourist board a lot.... It was mostly filmed there!! (That was a disgrace!)
As far as the embarrassing bits, the accents were a bit iffy, but good attempts.. the only thing it did get right is that the Scottish people have resented (even Hated!) the english due to some of the things that were shown in this film..
Just a small point here. Scotland has only had a say in it's own running since the english gave us the right to have MSP's and the Scottish Parliament.
It has been a disgrace that up until that point we were NOT living in a democracy (The Scottish Sec - who controlled the entire country, was appointed by london, he/she was NEVER voted into office by voters!)
Scotland does not want to abolish the Union, far from it.. But we would love to become EQUAL partners!! with the right to affect our own destiny...
It anger's most Scot's that the Irish got to choose and we are not deemed good enough by london to get the same privilege!!
