    name='PS68060']I laughed so much at That Sinking Feeling that it hurt.



    There is just something good about Scots comedy like Rab C and Still Game.




    Did you go to the event at the top of this page? Or do you mean you laughed at the film years back?



    If you (or anybody) went, was it the dubbed version, or is there a copy with the Glasgow accents finally available again?

    John Gordon Sinclair and Clare Grogan go back to the soon-to-closed school in Cumbernauld where they filmed Gregory's Girl some thirty years ago.

    I like the film myself, most probably because I grew up in a Scottish New Town very similar to Cumbernauld at exactly the same time - the greyness and characterlessness of the setting reminds me of those times perfectly. That said, I never danced lying down - not like that anyway

    As much as the film felt very real to someone around that age that time (I was just about to go to university, though) I am extremely fond of this film. Used to hope against hope that that would happen to me: that there would be someone interested in me whilst I was chasing the uninterested/unattainable!

    But hey, any film that introduced Clare Grogan to a wider world can't be all bad

    A lovely film, and it introduced me to Bill Forsyth's previous film, That Sinking Feeling (apparently the only DVD release is awful, so I wait in hope for a decent copy). Channel 4 showed it one afternoon, and its a gem. Comfort and Joy is wonderful, and Local Hero still works extremely well. Its a shame he hasn't made anything in such a long time.

    I've always hoped he'd make a film based on an incident I read about years ago, which took place in the late 1980s (?) in Glasgow. Apparently a goods train full of booze was 'accidently' directed to a siding, which the whole neighbourhood basically stripped clean. More McEwans Galore than Whisky Galore, but I think it would have fitted him perfectly.

    +1 for the score. That Sinking Feeling score is good too. Also by Colin Tully I think.

    I loved the film, but mainly because of the funny banter and scenes with the supporting characters in more minor roles.

    The sequel was a lost opportunity, a real dire and flat experience.
