Indeed, the location shoots had to be guarded by the San Francisco police department after gay extremists decided that Basic Instinct was the work of a homophobic, redneck devil.

It follows Renton and his junkie chums in Scotland as they continually crash from one bad situation into another. The movie's mix of black humour and urban hell will have you howling with laughter one moment and your mouth wide open in horror the next.
