1995 M Contains violence and offensive language.

Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a starter home. Choose dental insurance, leisure wear and matching luggage. Choose your future. But why would anyone want to do a thing like that?

"Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family..." This is the story of Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) and his so-called friends - a bunch of losers, liars, psychos, thieves and junkies. Hilarious but harrowing, the film charts the disintegration of their friendship as they proceed seemingly towards self-destruction. Mark alone has the insight and opportunity to escape his fate - but then again does he really want to "choose life"?

Far, far too much drug taking and misery, this about sums up this overrated effort. The vicious cycles of the character's lives get played over and over again ad nauseum. Leave this one to the 'stoned folk'.

I LOVED THIS MOVIE, A REAL 'DRUGIE' MOVIE. WELL WORTH WATCHING IF YOU'RE INTO THAT SORT OF THING.

A good movie, understandably a classic. Plenty of drug use and expected consequences, and the inevitable decision made again and again gets a little tiring, but movie made exceedingly well. Great watch.
