    Trainspotting -

    This movie just makes me laugh so hard. I dont know what it is about british humor but it makes me laugh. The other British movie i saw that made me laugh was 28 Days Later.

    I guess the dry humor and sarcasm is just what makes me laugh.

    You, my friend, are completely out. Seriously, just leave. haha

    But Trainspotting, a classic. I really didn't see a whole lot of humor because it was a serious movie (as serious as 4 heroin addicts that do stupid stuff can be). There really were some funny parts (*thinks: pooo*).

    I would say it's more Black humor than anything else.

    "for all the good they've done me I might as well have stuck them up my A**e" is however an excellent line well placed.

    Maybe I'm biased cause it's a movie from my early days and it's set in edinburgh which is always good.
    On a side note when they are running away at the start, after Renton jumps down the stairs, the road he runs down is a dead end IIRC, and the road the car comes out of is only about 15 mtrs long and blocked at the other end by a building
