Overview

What happens if you take one of William Shakespeare's darkest tragedies and move it to a burger joint in the early 1970s? The answer can be found in the satiric comedy Scotland, PA, the first feature from writer and director Billy Morrissette. Mac McBeth James LeGros is a hard-working but unambitious doofus who toils at a hamburger stand alongside his wife Pat Maura Tierney, who has a significant edge in the brains department. Pat is convinced she could do a lot better with the place than their boss Norm Duncan James Rebhorn is doing, so she works up a plan to usurp Norm, convincing Mac to rob the restaurant's safe and then murder Norm, using the robbery as a way of throwing the police off their trail. Though two stoners Andy Dick and Timothy Speed Levitch and a would-be fortune teller Amy Smart warn Mac that bad luck awaits him, he gathers his courage and goes through with his wife's scheme. At first, things seem to have gone just as Pat hoped, and after Norm's sons Geoff Dunsworth and Tom Guiry sell the restaurant to the McBeths they pay for it with the money they stole from Norm, business takes off. But vegetarian police detective McDuff Christopher Walken is convinced there's foul play at the new center of the fast food universe, and when the McBeths fear that fry cook Banco Kevin Corrigan knows more than he's letting on, Pat decides another murder is on the menu. Scotland, PA premiered at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival; incidentally, Shakespeare does receive screen credit for his contribution to the story.

    Awesome!

    This movie was great! I absolutley loved how Maura Tierney swore every other word, since in all the other movies she's in that never really happens.
