Storyline

First there was an opportunity......then there was a betrayal. Twenty years have gone by. Much has changed but just as much remains the same. Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) returns to the only place he can ever call home. They are waiting for him: Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), and Begbie (Robert Carlyle). Other old friends are waiting too: sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction and mortal danger, they are all lined up to welcome him, ready to join the dance.

Trivia

The four main actors were not all available at the same time at the very beginning of principal photography, due to scheduling conflicts with other projects. Danny Boyle stated in interviews that the American TV careers of Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle in particular made it a necessity to have a reduced filming schedule that could accommodate all four of the male leads.

Goofs

In Sick Boy's flat Renton and himself are talking about George Best when he played for Hibernian Football Club. When they slide on the pitch it is Tynecastle Park which is home to Heart of Midlothian, not Hibernian. See more »

Would you make Withnail & i 2?
30 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

Like everyone else, I loved the original, who didn't? Maybe my mum. Which is exactly the idea of rock n roll. It was a cultural master piece, the music, fashion, the poster. Being a film poster designer at the time we were all in ore or how ground breaking & cool that poster was.

This is by no means a bad film. I just think it shouldn't have been made.

The constant nostalgia references are tedious. Begbie's character is a total parody, so much so that I cringed when ever he was on screen.

The soundtrack was easily forgettable too. And why oh why did they have to keep playing remixes of the old tracks? Again, tedious.

As for the choose speech, a total cringe festival.

They should have made more of the brothel idea.

Some films are best left as master pieces. This should have been left to the one film
