    At last I thought one of my favourite films released on DVD, but what have

    they, whoever they may be,done?? Dubbed the actors Glaswegian accents.

    replaced with English, for the American market.. Barstewards.:crazy:

    What have they done?
    Without Glasgow accent, the film lost its charm. :(

    Is the original only available on VHS?

    # The producers re-dubbed the dialogue for the U.S. release to reduce heavy Glasgow accents, which would have been unintelligible to American audiences.

    # The cost for dubbing the US release was more than the original film production costs.

    Idiots!

    Apparently the dubbed version is the only version released.

    I'm sure it was a freebie in a Sunday newspaper a few years back..
